Padres Lose, Wilco (the Dog) Balks at Bark in the Park, Canine-Free Game Tonight

Posted By on Mon, May 16, 2011 at 1:49 PM

I took Wilco (the Dog) out to Kino Stadium for Bark in the Park night yesterday, but she got completely freaked out by something (perhaps the PA system or the Kino Bambino?) and had the doggie version of an anxiety attack, so I wasn't able to stay very long, despite the delightful weather. As it worked out, the Albuquerque Isotopes clobbered the Padres 10-5, but the T-Pads have a chance at revenge tonight. Get out to the ballpark with three other people and you'll get a great bargain: Four tickets, four hot dogs and four sodas for just $20 bucks, as long as you mentioned KIIM FM. First pitch is 7 p.m. Details here.

Here's a summary of last night's game from the Padres' Tim Hagerty:

The Albuquerque Isotopes scored seven times before the fourth inning Sunday and beat the Tucson Padres 10-5. Isotopes catcher Damaso Espino capped off a third inning rally with a long home run over the left field bullpen. In the third, Padres center fielder Luis Durango nearly made a sliding catch to leave the bases loaded, but the ball fell out of his glove, and three runs scored after the attempt.

Tucson starter Matt Buschmann allowed seven runs in five innings in his 2011 Triple-A debut. Buschmann was transferred from Double-A San Antonio and will fill the rotation spot of Simon Castro, who is on the disabled list with a right lat strain.

Both clubs had a Major League All-Star leading off because of injury rehab assignments. Orlando Hudson played five innings for Tucson, hitting two doubles and drawing a walk. Both doubles were to right field with Hudson batting right-handed. Rafael Furcal had another strong game atop the lineup for Albuquerque, hitting a first inning double and scoring a run in the win. Both Furcal and Hudson are expected to play tomorrow at Kino Stadium.

Next Game: Monday, 7:00 pm — Tucson LHP Wade LeBlanc (2-0) vs. Albuquerque RHP Steven Jackson (0-1)
