Hunter Pence said he was mad and that he felt terrible. The disappointment was still clear in his eyes as he sat down for a Zoom call with reporters, and a few minutes in, he said a misplay in left field had made him feel sick to his stomach.

Starling Marte and Stephen Vogt homered off Chris Paddack in the sixth inning, and the Arizona Diamondbacks beat the San Diego Padres 3-2 on Saturday night. The Padres failed to capitalize on two more home runs by Fernando Tatis Jr., including his second leadoff homer in as many nights. Tatis' second homer, off Hector Rondon in the eighth, pulled the Padres to 3-2.
The Angels' poor hitting performances continue as they fail to bail out Patrick Sandoval and fall to 5-10 one-quarter of the way into a shortened season.
