Stults (7-17) was rocked for four runs and six hits in 4 1-3 innings as the Padres fell to the Phillies, 5-2.
Yangervis Solarte, Tommy Medica and Cameron Maybin each had two hits for the Padres.

The arrangement allows Ma to retain control even though his and Tsai's shareholdings are outweighed by the 34.1 percent held by Japan's SoftBank Corp.
