"I thought it was a good pitch," O'Sullivan said of the 2-and-0 delivery to Hawpe. "He got it up in the air. Not a good night for fly balls."The game was played with a stiff, 20-mph wind blowing out toward left field. Up next for Padres: Tim Stauffer will be looking for better results when he makes his third start as the Padres visit Phoenix to play the A's on Tuesday at 12:05 p.m. PT. The righty has allowed five earned runs in his first 4 2/3 innings. Pitchers due to follow him include two re-assigned on Monday to the Minor League camp, righties Alexis Lara and Brad Brach. It will be the Padres' last Cactus League look at the A's, whom they defeated on Sunday, 7-6, in walk-off fashion. Up next for Royals: When the Royals meet the Reds at 2:05 p.m. CT at Surprise Stadium on Tuesday, pitchers Danny Duffy, Blaine Hardy, Patrick Keating and Steven Shell will follow starter Kyle Davies, and manager Ned Yost will be watching closely.
"We have to see some better performances out of the some of the young pitchers. We're getting to the point where it's to your advantage to bring your 'A' game," Yost said.
