Chad Gaudin would like to forget Friday's first inning. While throwing 46 pitches, the starter -- who settled down over the next four innings -- allowed five runs that the Padres couldn't regain as they fell in the series opener. Scott Hairston ripped a solo shot and Adrian Gonzalez added a two-run double, but it proved not enough.
a-Grounded out for Gaudin in the 5th. b-Struck out for Adams, M in the 7th.
