- 10-1 Padres
After a frustrating 1-0 loss on Saturday, we came out to the ballpark yesterday with our good pitching and hitting. In his second start after coming off the DL, Chris Young was incredible. He took a perfect game into the 8th, where the Brewers finally got their first hit and run on a Gabe Kaplar homer. They were able to scratch one more hit in the 9th, but CY threw a complete game on 96 pitches. He beat them bad. And so did the Padres’ hitters. Every guy in the lineup except leadoff hitter Matt Antonelli had at least one hit. Kouz hit his 21st homer of the year. Adrian, Chase Headley, Nick Hundley, and Will Venable each had 2 hits. Chase got his 9th home run. Sean Kazmar had three hits and a walk. Even CY got a hit, his 2nd of the year. We got 5 runs in the third, and 4 runs in the 7th. We also got one in the fifth. It was an amazing game. We split the series, which is not bad, considering that we have the worst record in baseball.
On Friday the Padres called up outfielder Drew Macias and pitcher Mike Ekstorm. Today we are back at home, facing the division leading Dodgers once again. And guess what? We get to face Maddux again! This time we will pound him. If anyone wants to see Manny in San Diego, now is the time to head out to Petco. On Thursday, we start a 4-game series against the Giants, and I will be there. Remember, these games against the Dodgers will have playoff implications. Hopefully this will be a homestand like the last one. GO PADRES!!
