Game Story: Padres take down Red Sox, 5-4

BOSTON -- Once again, the Red Sox and San Diego Padres were tied after six innings.

Unlike the series opener Monday night, however, this time it was the Padres who figured out a way to come up with a late-inning win.

San Diego scored the go-ahead run in the top of the seventh on a bases-loaded fielder's choice while the Red Sox continued a game-long pattern of wasting scoring opportunities and were left with a 5-4 defeat.

The Sox stranded 11 baserunners, including seven in scoring position in losing for only the third time in the last 16 games.
