D-backs set franchise runs mark with 20-5 rout
6:46 AM ET
PHOENIX — Five home runs, 18 hits, 20 runs.
David Peralta drove in three runs and matched his career best with five hits as the Diamondbacks set a single-game franchise scoring record with a 20-5 rout of the Padres.
“It wasn’t just a good night for me,” Peralta said. “It was a good night for everybody.”
Wil Myers became the third Padres player to homer three times in a game, but San Diego was blown out in its 16th loss in 21 games.
“This day was painful, there is no doubt about it,” Padres manager Andy Green said. “This day was painful for fans, painful for players, for us. But you have to look at it like tomorrow you have a chance to split the series against a first-place club. It is one loss. It is a painful one. We will remember it, but we will also move on.”
