TUCSON, AZ – Daniel Robertson drilled a two run fifth inning double to vault the Tucson Padres to a 6-2 win over the visiting New Orleans Zephyrs at Kino Veterans Memorial Stadium.

The Z’s and Padres were tied at one when Tucson managed a lead-off walk before a Zephyrs throwing error leaving a pair of runners on base. Robertson doubled just fair inside the first base line to scored the go-ahead runs.

Tucson starter Keyvius Sampson pitched six innings and allowed one run on three hits. He struck-out six hitters, earning his first win for the Padres. Sam Dyson took the loss pitching 5.2 innings and allowing three runs, two earned, on four hits.

Rob Brantly and Jordan Brown each picked up a pair of hits for the Zephyrs.

New Orleans, which has dropped two in a row, fell to 60-61 on the season.

Game Notes – Bryan Petersen’s seven game hit streak was snapped. Petersen was hitless in three plate appearances but drew a pair of walks.

Coming Up – The final game of the series from Tucson is set for Sunday at 9:05. New Orleans will start RH Jarod Rogers (6-3, 4.80) vs. Tuscon RH Anthony Bass (2-5, 6.67). RADIO: WMTI 106.1 FM “The Ticket”
