Padres vs. Twins: Game 1 Recap
Well, we lost 3-1. Jake threw well. 6 innings, 5 hits, 1 run, 6 strikeouts. He threw over 100 pitches, though. Our offense stunk. The big blow was Trevor getting touched up for two homers in the top of the ninth. It was a tie game, and Trev struck out two guys before allowing the back-to-back homers. He just does not function in tie games. He got his 5th loss, and he has blown 3 or 4 tie games. I have no idea why Bud Black put Trev in, but he did and we lost. BUT, this was not Trevor’s fault. Two Padres batters could not lay down a sacrifice bunt. Our offense is simply pathetic. We get 7 hits in the entire game. 3 of them were infield hits. We are playing absolutely horrible baseball right now and we deserve to be 32-46. Ouch. It hurts, but it’s the truth. We definitely deserve to be in last place and 8 games behind. Probably what’s frustrating me the most is that we haven’t been taking advantage of Arizona’s downfall. Arizona continues to lose and we haven’t gained any games. The NL West is really slumping right now. Sad game. I hope we get better SOON. Go Padres!
