Well, what do you know. The Padres came home and the bats went cold. There’s definitely something about Petco Park that completely kills our bats. It really stinks.
Dustin Moseley started the game and didn’t do too badly. He threw 5.1 innings, allowing three runs (two earned) on six hits. Jason Bartlett made two errors, which is always great.
Ryan Ludwick hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the fourth for our only runs of the game. Just wonderful.
We play the Brewers again today before starting interleague play tomorrow (already!!!!) against the Mariners. And we all know how that’s going to go. We’re at Petco AND we’re playing the Mariners. We have no chance at all. You know, the Mariners have always sort of been our rivals because we share the Peoria Sports Complex with them and for some annoying reason, we always play them two or three times during the season. I don’t know why that happens, but the point is that they always always always cream us. A rivalry isn’t really a rivalry if only one of the teams has the ability to actually win.
Let me tell you, I’m getting nauseous just thinking about interleague play. We don’t even stand a chance against teams in our own division, and interleague has been historically brutal to us. As in season-killing. I am extremely worried.
But anyways, in other news, MLBlogs.com’s Latest Leaders for the month of April came out recently, and this blog was #4 in the fan blog section. . Thank you guys so much! It’s pretty exciting to see my blog that high up. Like I said yesterday, I’m done with school now (done with high school actually), so I’ll definitely be blogging more consistently. Thank you soooooo much!!!
