- 7-4 Giants
We had a 3-0 lead. But the problem yesterday was the bullpen. Mike Adams got roughed up for the second straight outing. Bengie Molina hit a huge 3-run homer to make the score 7-3. Justin Hampson also had problems. We left 11 runners on. We were in it, if we could have got one hit with the bases loaded. One cool part of this game was Brian Giles hitting the first pitch of the game into the bay. Buddy was mixing up the lineup. But the Giants are a better team. They have better pitching. For some reason, the problem of the Padres’ speed has really has come out in the last week. Maybe it’s because the Giants play small ball with speed. Maybe it’s because the Giants are cheetahs compared to us, the snails. But I don’t think bringing up Will Venable will solve our speed problem. We need a team of speedsters. Hey, it won’t really matter if we have speedy guys on the bases and we can’t hit. This team is a mess. Well, we get to face Dan Haren, Brandon Webb, and Randy Johnson this week. Jake will try to snap this 7-game losing streak tonight. Oh, if anyone has been wondering, we are 20 games behind. HAHA!! That’s actually funny. GO PADRES!!
