Ziegler falls short again as Marlins lose in ninth

Brad Ziegler stood in front of his locker, searching for answers to the same painful questions he'd rather not be asked.

"I don't know exactly what it is," Ziegler said. "It's pretty empty. It's a lot of self-examination, questioning, what in the world is going on? It's frustrating to just be in this spot again."

Once again, Ziegler failed to protect a ninth-inning lead and the result was a 3-2 loss to the Padres on Wednesday that spoiled Jose Urena's bid to register his first pitching win of the season.

Ziegler is now 0-5 with a 7.
