Ross (13-12) allowed one run and six
hits, extending his franchise-record streak to 14 straight quality
starts, and two relievers bridged the gap to Kevin Quackenbush, who
struck out the side in the ninth for his second save. Yasmani Grandal
and Jedd Gyorko had two hits apiece for the Padres, who have won five of
their last six.
Arizona starter Trevor Cahill (3-10) issued six walks in four
innings, permitting three runs and five hits. Miguel Montero had two
hits and an RBI and Ender Inciarte added a pair of hits as the
Diamondbacks lost for the fifth time in seven games.
Alexi Amarista opened the scoring with an RBI single in the fourth.
Spangenberg, called up from Double-A San Antonio before the game,
added a two-run single for his first big-league hit an inning later
to make it 3-0.
The Diamondbacks strung together three straight singles to start the
sixth with Montero's hit bringing home David Peralta, but Ross
struck out the next three batters to preserve the lead. San Diego's
bullpen took care of the rest as three relievers combined for five
strikeouts in three perfect frames.
