Despite a strong night at the plate from Erick Aybar, Alexi Amarista lifted the San Diego Padres past Dan Haren and the Angels.
Aybar went 4-for-4 with a walk, but the Angels couldn't get that one extra hit at the right time. John Hester missed a chance to cash in Aybar from third with one out in the 2nd. His swing-and-miss proved to be a crucial blunder in a game that left no room for missed opportunities.
Amarista continued the recent tradition of former Angels performing well against their former team. He scored two runs and had two hits with an RBI plus a walk.
