Padres Loss Another Close One in the 12th Inning

Posted By on Wed, May 18, 2011 at 8:24 AM

The Tucson Padres closed out the homestand last night with an extra-innings loss. The details from Tim Hagerty of the Padres:

Albuquerque scored three times in an eventful top of the twelfth inning and beat the Tucson Padres 11-9 Tuesday. With the score tied at eight, the Isotopes had the bases loaded in the twelfth with two outs when Ivan DeJesus hit a high chopper to second baseman Robbie Hudson, who flipped to shortstop Alex Cintron for what appeared to be an inning-ending force out. First base umpire Jason Millsap called Dee Gordon safe at second base, forcing in the go ahead run. Hudson was ejected from the game after arguing the play.

The Padres scored once in the twelfth on Cintron’s sacrifice fly, and had two runners on base for Anthony Rizzo, who grounded to second base. Albuquerque then intentionally walked Jesus Guzman to load the bases, forcing pitcher Aaron Poreda to bat for the fifth time in his professional career. Poreda struck out on a 3-2 pitch and Albuquerque won.

The Padres split the eight-game homestand and do not play on Wednesday before traveling to Iowa and Omaha.
