Stifled by Lincecum

Yesterday’s game did not go well, and it was for one reason and one reason only: Tim Lincecum.

That guy is so weird, but man, he’s effective. He completely held us down. He threw seven innings, only allowing one run on three hits with 13 strikeouts. We had no chance.

Coincidentally, the person we did get to was closer Brian Wilson in the bottom of the ninth. I guess he gets an excuse because he literally just got off the disabled list, but still.

With one out, Alberto Gonzalez singled and Orlando Hudson walked. Brad Hawpe finally got his first hit as a Padre with a RBI single. After a pitching change, Chase Headley doubled in Hudson and Hawpe. That was our rally. We kind of ended the game with the bases loaded, which stinks. It was good that we did rally a little, but it’s always such a letdown when you could have done more. Oh well.

So, we lost to the Giants 8-4. It was okay because it was only a two-game series, so we got the split. Let’s just hope that we never have to face Lincecum again this season.

Nick Hundley hit a huge home run against Lincecum. That guy has been soooo hot. He didn’t get hits in his other two at-bats, though, bringing down his average to .500. Ha. In comparison, the rest of yesterday’s starting lineup was batting under .200 except for Chase Headley who brought his average up in the game when he went 2-for-4.

Tim Stauffer didn’t do so great. He went only 4.2 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits. Then each and every one of the next five relievers except Chad Qualls allowed at least one run. Sigh.

Today the MLBlogs.com Latest Leaders for the month of March came out. This blog is #5!!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you all so much. This is my fifth season of being a Padres fan, and the start of my third season of blogging here at MLBlogs.com. Wow, it’s crazy how fast time goes by! Looking forward to an excellent season of Padres baseball :) 

Well, now we get to face the Dodgers for three games this weekend. That’s going to be super fun. Hopefully we can get at least two out of three.

GO PADRES!!!

It was a loss, but I was happy that we made it interesting in the 9th, it showed that even when we’re down, we don’t quit, and our team is always dangerous. I think it’s good we’re sending an early message to other teams with the STL and SF series that facing us will not be an easy win for any team!
