The Padres got swept in a three game series with the Angels after another tough loss on Wednesday night. 

Former Padres Rene Rivera hit a monster home run off Kirby Yates in the 9th inning that proved to be the winning run for the Angels. 

The Padres now take on the first place D-Backs for a four game series starting Thursday night at Petco Park.
