Petco Park, San Diego, California
• Summary: Chris Young pitched a one-hitter and struck out 11 (one shy of his career high) as the Padres snapped a three-game losing streak. Khalil Greene homered twice and Josh Bard had a questionable home run to lead the Padres offense.
• About that home run ...: San Diego was leading 2-0 with Mike Cameron on second when Bard hit a pitch off the foul pole in the left field corner and hopped out of the batter's box. He then threw up his hands in disbelief after third base umpire Brian Knight ruled it a foul ball. After Padres manager Bud Black argued the call, the umps huddled and Bard was given the home run. Red Sox manager Terry Francona came out and spoke with crew chief Dana DeMuth, then vented on Knight and got tossed.
• Unsung hero: Greene's two home runs highlighted a 3-for-4 night and was his second career multi-home run game.
• Figure this: Boston lost for the second time in its last eight games.
• Quotable: "They convened and got that one right, where we thought it was a home run. I've seen this the last couple of years, the umpires convening and talking through it and coming up with a decision. I tip my cap to the umpires for a lot of times taking the ego out of a call and talking it through." -- Black
