Back To The Giants
I am sooo bummed about this weekend. Not even funny. It’s pretty sad that we lost three games in a row, but against the Dodgers too? Argh.
It was a horrible series!!! The only positive I think of is like, Wade LeBlanc yesterday. He only allowed one run in seven innings. It was a great outing. But we lost the game 1-0. The night before we lost the game 4-1. The day before that was 4-3. It was an awful awful awful series.
I wouldn’t say that it was all the pitching’s fault. Maybe on Friday it was. But Kevin Correia was amazing on Saturday. Sure, he allowed four runs, but his offense wasn’t there for him. That game was unbelievable. As I sat there and watched Gameday, there was a feeling just totally overwhelming me that there was no possible way that we could come close to winning that game. It was the worst feeling ever. I tried keeping the faith, but the offense was giving me nothing. It was unbelievable.
After that amazing sweep of the Giants and that amazing outing by Mat Latos on Wednesday, I think we expected a lot more from this team. I have no idea what could have possibly happened in a matter of hours, but the team that came out there on Friday night was not the same team we saw a few days before. It was crazy.
Did you know that we had never lost three games in a row all season before yesterday? We’ve been amazing. The Dodgers have been not so amazing. Why were our roles reversed this weekend? It just doesn’t make any sense.
We are still hanging on by a thread to our first place lead, half a game. If we hadn’t swept the Giants earlier in the week, we would have lost that lead. I’m thankful that we still have it, but we’re walking on very precarious ground. We’ve got to get right back on our horse now. And guess what, we’ve got perfect timing here: we’re playing the Giants for two games here at Petco.
We were able to beat them at ATT&T, so we’ll be able to beat them at home…right? Right?
Gameplan: forget about the Dodgers series like, right now. Erase it from the memory. Focus on beating the Giants. Be thankful that we’re not facing Timmy, but hope that the Giants are scared that they have to face Mat Latos again. Let’s get this.
Come on, boys. I know you’re better than this.
GO FIRST-PLACE PADRES!!!
