Tyson Ross shuts down former A's teammates in Padres' win

Tyson Ross said it felt weird trying to strike out his friends and former teammates.
It didn’t hinder his performance, though.

Ross gave up two hits and struck out three in three innings, and Yonder Alonso hit one of the San Diego Padres’ three homers in a 10-0 romp over the A’s on Monday.

“Coming in, I probably said hello to one too many guys and I heard it from the guys in the bullpen,” said Ross, acquired by the Padres in trade this offseason. “They were chirping, telling me to cut the cord and whatnot, but those are my friends over there. It was good to see them.”

It was the second straight scoreless outing for the 25-year-old Ross. But he needed 62 pitches — 38 strikes — to get through his outing.

The Padres’ offense jumped all over A’s starter Jarrod Parker, who gave up five runs and two home runs in four innings pitched.

“They didn’t let him get away with mistakes,” Oakland manager Bob Melvin said. “Anything left up in the zone, those guys were driving.”

Jonathan Galvez and Travis Buck each homered for the Padres. Alonso had three RBIs.
