The Return of Latos

Mat Latos is back, and though he wasn’t entirely on his game, at least he’s pitching. I think that’s a good start.

Mat went six innings, allowing three runs on four hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. Not to bad at all, but he did pile up the pitch count pretty quickly. He finished up with 94 pitches.

On the other side, Reds starter Edinson Volquez helped us out in the first inning. He was pretty erratic. He allowed two singles, then a walk, and then he hit Ryan Ludwick to drive in our first run. Brad Hawpe gave us a sacrifice fly for the second run.

The Reds pulled ahead in the fourth and fifth innings. Chris Heisey hit a two-run homer in the fifth.

After Latos left, Ernesto Frieri came in to pitch. He threw 1.1 innings, only allowing one hit and one walk with three strikeouts.

We lost 3-2. It stunk. We just didn’t capitalize on the situations that we had.

Our hitting is still not looking that great. Not only that, but our baserunning was not helping us either. We had two people caught stealing, which easily killed some run-scoring opportunities.

Will Venable, leading off, went 2-for-3 with a run scored, which was great. But he also was one of the guys who got caught stealing.

We are now 4-5. I really hope we get things back together.

I’m going to tomorrow’s game, which I’m really excited about it. It’ll be a lot of fun to get out and to actually see how the team is doing myself. Hopefully they’ll give me a good game.

GO PADRES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
