The Phils opened this seven-game trip last night with a 7-4 loss to the Padres. Spangenberg is hitting.330/.410/.583 in the second half with six home runs, already more than the five he had in the entire first half. With one out in the seventh, Hoskins hit a 1-2 pitch from Craig Stammen to center, giving Philadelphia its fourth and final run of the game. He noted that Spangenberg's hustle allowed him to reach second safely on a fielder's choice, which helped fuel the Padres' four-run sixth inning.

Jose Torres (7-3), who got one out in the sixth, earned the win.
