Bring your appetite to tonight's Tucson Padres game—hot dogs are just $1 on Wiener Wednesday! First pitch is 7 p.m. at Kino Stadium. Details here.

The T-Pads won last night with a three-run, eighth-inning rally. Here are details from the Padres' Tim Hagerty:

The Tucson Padres scored three times in the bottom of the eighth inning to break a tie and beat Round Rock 11-8 Tuesday. The win ended a three-game losing streak for Tucson and snapped a five-game winning streak for Round Rock. The Padres sent ten batters to the plate in the fourth inning, scoring six times, the most runs in a single inning the T-Pads have plated this year.

Rob Musgrave had a strong start for Tucson the day he was added from Double-A San Antonio. Musgrave pitched four innings, allowing two runs on six hits. Randy Flores had another strong outing for the Padres, throwing a scoreless inning, lowering his ERA to 3.12. Pat Neshek collected his first Tucson Padres win, entering the game tied at eight, and pitched a scoreless ninth after the Padres took the lead in the bottom of the eighth.

Tucson nearly turned a game-ending triple play. With two runners on base and none out, Jesus Guzman fielded a ground ball hit by Esteban German, stepped on third base, threw to second baseman Robbie Hudson for the second out, but German beat Hudson's throw to first. One batter later, Guzman bare-handed a ground ball by Brian Barden and threw to first to end the game.

The Padres are now 15-18, with an 8-5 home record, in fourth place, six games behind first place Sacramento.
