Padres 8 Phillies 7.

C. Young (2-0) - 3.2 IP 9 H 7 ER 2 BB 2 K 4.86 ERA. 82 pitches, 51 strikes.

Chris Young allowed a career-high tying seven earned runs as San Diego fell in a 7-1 pit after three innings, but the Padres battled back, scoring three runs with two outs in the eighth and rallying for the 8-7 victory.

Young was in trouble most of the evening, struggling to find his rhythm. He gave up an immediate broken bat single to Jimmy Rollins to start the bottom of the first. Shave Victorino grounded one through the hole to right to put runners on the corners and Chase Ultey swatted a 1-0 Young offering off the front of the second deck in right field.

By the time the first inning concluded Young had allowed five earned runs and thrown 42 pitches.

But Young's teammates picked him up despite a six run deficit and World Series MVP Cole Hamels on the hill for the Phillies, as San Diego improved its record a surprising 8-3 on the season.
