The Tucson Padres had their chances but squandered too many Tuesday night in a 4-2 loss at Fresno.

The loss ended a six-game winning streak for the Padres (9-10) that enabled them to reach .500 for the first time this season.

The problems began in the second inning when Jonathan Galvez led off with a double but was caught attempting to steal at third base. Tucson loaded the bases later in the inning but came up empty.

The Padres scored their first run in the third when Jaff Decker led off with a double and scored on a single by Galvez. A walk gave the Padres two on with one out, but Dean Anna grounded into a double play.

Fresno went up 4-1 with two-run innings in the fourth and seventh.

The Padres' got one back in the eighth when Daniel Robertson walked and eventually came around on a single by Galvez, but they left the tying runs aboard as the inning ended.

Second baseman Galvez led the Padres at the plate with three hits and drove in both Tucson runs. Cody Decker had a pair of singles, but Decker's double was Tucson's only other hit. Even six walks by Fresno pitchers couldn't lead to more runs.

Tucson starter Eddie Bonine (0-1) allowed six hits and two runs in three-plus innings. He was lifted in the fourth after allowing a leadoff single by Carter Jurica, a two-run home run by Brett Pill and a single by Roger Kieschnick.
