San Diego Padres wins in 9th thank to Ross

San Diego Padres wins in 9th thank to Ross

From about the fourth inning at Chase Field on Friday night, the thoughts started popping into Tyson Ross’ head for the San Diego Padres in the MLB. He had to find a way to keep them out.

“I realized, this is why the guys won’t talk to me,” Ross said.

He was flirting with the first no-hitter in Padres history. He was rolling. Dominating.

In the eighth inning, it all ended when D-backs pinch-hitter Christian Walker hit a line drive over the head of center fielder Franchy Cordero, who misplayed the ball. Not only did that RBI double end the no-no, but it tied the game, 1-1, and set the stage for a ninth-inning rally and a 4-1 win.

“It wasn’t the cleanest break,” Padres manager Andy Green said of Cordero’s misread. “I know he’s the type of kid that’ll go home thinking about that, how he should’ve made that catch. Franchy gives everything he has out there.”

 To top it off, the ball had a catch probability of 99 percent, per Statcast™. The play should’ve been made. (To give some context on that catch probability, take a look at this Carlos Gomez catch below from 2016, which was basically identical in terms of the distance Cordero needed to cover and the time he had to do it. Gomez converted it with ease.
