Darvish worked a five-pitch at-bat from Yu Darvish in the third inning. On the final pitch, he hit a 90 mph fastball from Darvish out to right for the solo shot. The game lasted just five innings due to rain, so Gardner finished 1 for 2.
Bautista waited until the ninth inning to hit his long-ball. He hammered the first pitch he saw from Andrew Miller out to left center for the solo shot. Bautista also hit a run-scoring double in the first inning. He finished 2 for 4, with two runs scored and two RBI.
Haren won't pitch again until at least Aug. 2, and he may not have a spot in the rotation by that point if the team brings in a starting pitcher before the trade deadline. He gave up five runs in five innings Wednesday and has lost four straight starts.
Ortiz struck immediately. In his first at-bat of the game, Ortiz belted a 76 mph knuckleball out to right for a three-run shot. It was his only hit of the game. Ortiz finished 1 for 4, with one run scored and three RBI.
Wada allowed five runs on five hits over four innings. He struck out four and walked four. The Padres were on to Wada early. Yangervis Solarte drove in the game’s first run on a triple, and Carlos Quentin added a sac fly.
Wada was able to compose himself for two innings, but allowed another run in the fourth. Things continued to unravel in the fifth. Wada walked the first two hitters of the inning before giving up a run-scoring double. He then issued two more walks, bringing in another run. Wada got himself out of the inning, but was replaced in the sixth.
With the loss, Wada dropped to 0-1 on the year. His next start will come against the Rockies.
