Padres Vs. Phillies, Game 3 Final Score: Errors, Poor Hitting Lead To Philly's Second Straight Loss To San Diego, 6-1

The Philadelphia Phillies failed to collect its second series win of the season Sunday, as they lost to the San Diego Padres 6-1 at Petco Park. Anthony Bass pitched six innings of one-run ball for the Padres (5-12), who were able to beat the Phillies (7-8) in the final two games of a four-game set to earn a split.

Phillies' starting pitcher Joe Blanton suffered his third loss of the season, as he lasted just six innings after allowing six runs -- three earned -- on seven hits, the same amount that Philly's offensive was able to muster.

Overall, the Phillies went 1-for-9 with runners in scoring position and twice had runners in scoring position with one out, but wasn't able to drive home a run.

Phildelphia's defense was just as bad as the offense, as it committed three errors, the first allowing two first-inning runs by the Padres.

The Phillies now travel to Phoenix, Az. to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-game series that begins on Monday at 9:40 p.m. Kyle Kendrick (0-0, 1.93 ERA) will take the mound for Philly.
