The game would then become a pitchers’ duel between Wieland, who would settle down and allow the Phils to have only two more hits against him, as he struck out seven, as the offense continue to have its problem putting together rallies, and then the Padres’ bullpen, and Phils’ starter Vance Worley, who would pitch an excellent game against the Padres, as he struck out a career-high eleven Padres, while pitching out of a man on third, no outs, jam in the second, and then a first and third, one man out, jam in the fifth, as he struck out Jeremy Hermida, swinging, for the inning’s second out, before Ruiz would throw to second base, trying to catch stealing Chase Headley, who had just singled, who then stopped in front of second base as Rollins catches the ball, trying to start a run down so that Venable, who had started the inning off with a single, then moved up to second base on Cameron Maybin’s sacrifice bunt, 1-3, for the inning’s first out, and then went up to third base on Headley’s single, could head for home during the run down to tie up the ballgame, but, Rollins did not bite, and instead threw home, beating Venable to the plate, as Ruiz put on the tag for the inning’s final out, keeping it a 1-o Phils’ lead, and then, finally, a two on, two out, jam in the seventh, as he struck out pinch hitter Mark Kotsay, looking.
