Maddux Beats Us
- 5-2 Dodgers
Single, single, single. That’s how the Padres’ first started. It seemed like they would be able to get to Greg Maddux early. But NO. We did get 1 run, but Maddux settled down big time and retired the next three hitters. Then he shut us down for for the rest of his five and two-thirds innings. He got his 354th win. Now he’s tied with Roger Clemens for 8th on the all-time wins list. Congrats, Greg. Meanwhile, CY came off the DL and struggled. He gave up 4 runs in 5 innings while throwing 80 pitches. He wasn’t the best, but I don’t think anyone was expecting a complete game shutout. Clay Hensley struggled, but Cla Meredith and Justin Hampson were good. We lost, 5-2. Fear not, I have a positive! In the continuing youth movement, second baseman Matt Antonelli started and made his major league debut. He singled against Maddog in his first AB. He didn’t get many plays at 2nd, but the ones he did get he fielded cleanly. Bad game for the Padres. We were disgraced. But Cha Sueng Baek is going tonight vs. Clayton Kershaw. We can do this. GO PADRES!! BEAT LA!!
