Tyson Ross makes a bid to pitch the first no-hitter in the history of the Padres

Tyson Ross makes a bid to pitch the first no-hitter in the history of the Padres, keeping the Diamondbacks from getting a base hit until two are out in the game. Unfortunately, CF Franchy Cordero, who has accounted for the game’s only run until then with a massive homer in the 4th, mis-judges a very catchable fly ball by PH Christian Walker, and it falls in for a game-tying double. Ross then leaves the game, with nothing to show for his tremendous performance. Reliever Brad Hand records the last four outs without allowing another safety and gets credit for the 4 – 1 win after San Diego scores three runs in the top of the 9th.

2007 – The Colorado Rockies defeat the San Diego Padres, 9 – 8, in 13 innings to win the one-game playoff to determine the National League wild card. Matt Holliday scores the winning run on a sacrifice fly by Jamey Carroll, as ace closer Trevor Hoffman blows the 8 – 6 lead which Scott Hairston’s two-run home run in the top of the 13th had provided. The Rockies will take part in the postseason for the first time since 1995. Colorado’s 9-8 comeback victory, their 14th in their last 15 games, ends the season for the Padres, who were one strike away two games ago from clinching a postseason berth.

The Reds and Padres reach an agreement to trade Ken Griffey, Jr. for Phil Nevin

2002 – The Reds and Padres reach an agreement to trade Ken Griffey, Jr. for Phil Nevin, but Nevin, with a no-trade clause in his contract, nixes the deal. He says he will only agree to a trade to a West Coast team that trains in Arizona. Griffey tore a tendon in his knee during the first week of last season, setting up another season limited by leg injuries. He also pulled a hamstring and strained hip muscles, limiting him to 70 games, a .264 average, eight homers and 23 RBIs. In a week, the White Sox will turn down an offer of Griffey for Magglio Ordonez.
