WANTED: Guys who can actually support their pitchers with a few runs!!!
I think I’ve figured out what our problem is. For those of you who haven’t been watching the Padres, we are 4-6 in our last ten games, and we are in a serious slump right now. Ever since we won our opening series against the Cardinals, we have lost two series and split two more.
Last night, we lost the first of three games to the Cubs 1-0 in 10 innings. It was so bad! The only problem with this team right now is that we can’t hit. Like, at all. Sure, we do break out the bats like every three games, but the rest of the time, nothing’s going.
But the thing is, our pitching is fine. Our pitching is amazing! Tim Stauffer threw seven innings last night, only allowing four hits with one walk and four strikeouts. But he got zero run support.
Mike Adams, Luke Gregerson, and Chad Qualls also threw, but Qualls was the one who allowed the run for the Cubs’ win.
As of right now, we are completely out of it. Even if we were winning, the Colorado Rockies are on fire. They’re blowing away everyone in the division with a record of 12-4. The Giants are behind them with a record of 9-7 and three games behind. We are currently in fourth place and five games behind.
But I guess we’ll just have to see how the season goes. We’ve still got a ton of season left, and a lot can happen. But we’d better get our bats going ASAP!!!!
