Padres home at last to drop Giants

·

Coming home fresh off of getting swept in Los Angeles, Padres take it out on the Giants

Perhaps the Padres just needed to come home. Or maybe they needed to play a team like the reeling San Francisco Giants. In either case, the Friars beat the Padres 4-1 on Monday despite managing to get only four hits. ...

Dodgers edge Padres again

A memo from the Department of Redundancy Department: Padres take lead, Dodgers quickly tie the game, and then Dodgers prevail late

Remember Saturday night, when the Padres lost to the Dodgers, 2-1? Remember when the Padres lost to the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon, 2-1? Rinse. Lather. Repeat. It was the same scenario, albeit with less offense except that the score was ...

Dodgers beat Padres again

·

In a very tight game, the Dodgers scored late and edged the Padres by a run

Andrew Cashner pitched a brilliant game, again, but the Padres came up short, again, on Saturday in Los Angeles. Taking a 1-0 lead into the seventh inning, the Friars allowed a run in that frame and another in the eighth ...

Dodgers whomp Padres

·

In a mismatch, the Padres were blown away by a much better Dodger team

Not much good happened on Friday night at Chavez Ravine if you’re a Padres fan. In fact, a lot went bad and the Padres fell to the Los Angeles Dodgers 9-2. It was around 90 degrees when the game got ...

Padres face Dodgers in matchup of different directions

·

The Padres and Dodgers have flip-flopped this season, but for good reason - next season will be more likely to tell the tale

As the Padres stir around in the clubhouse, or get ready to take batting practice on a Friday afternoon in Los Angeles, some notes are probably in order as we slide into September. The Dodgers used to be in last ...

Padres pull one out to beat the Snakes

·

The Padres avoided being swept against the Diamondbacks thanks to good pitching and the long ball

Wednesday night was more like it. Will Venable and Jesus Guzman each hit a home run and the Padres finally took one from the Arizona Diamondbacks 5-1. And starter Robbie Erlin shined for the Friars. The Padres got on the ...

Gutty Padres fail against Diamondbacks

·

Not for a lack of effort, Arizona prevailed over San Diego in extra innings, in an entertaining game for those not keeping score

You can say what you want about Tuesday’s loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks by the Padres, but you can’t say it was a boring game. It went ten innings, and the Snakes finally got over 10-9, but the Padres fought ...

Padres falter and drop one to the Diamondbacks

·

What started as a tight game got a little sloppy and Arizona topped San Diego

The Padres went to Arizona on Monday and simply failed to contain the Diamondbacks, losing 6-1 while playing some generally sloppy baseball. It didn’t help that the Friars didn’t seem capable of getting the bat off of their shoulders, either. ...

Padres go to great lengths to outlast Cubs

·

First there was nothing, then there was something, and then finally something more, as the Friars prevail in the end

In a rather bizarre game that tried never to end, the Padres finally scored in the bottom of the fifteenth inning and edged the Cubs in walk-off fashion, 3-2, on Sunday. Hundreds of fans saw the ending when Nick Hundley ...

Padres finally get Pirate booty

·

The Padres managed to salvage some sunken treasure from the Pirates and avoid the sweep

If you take the Pittsburgh Pirates lineup and parse out the current roster before Wednesday’s game against Padres starter Ian Kennedy, as a group they were hitting .310 against him with a slugging percentage of .592 lifetime. If statistics mean ...

In a game that got out of hand two-thirds if the way in, the Pirates ensured that they would take the series against the Padres

Padres introduce Mike Dee

·

After announcing the hiring of Mike Dee back in July, a formal introduction was made to media

Mets get best of Padres

In a very tight game up until the eighth inning, the Mets waited out Tyson Ross and attacked the bull pen to pull out a win

Padres starter Tyson Ross and Mets hurler Zack Wheeler both pitched magnificent baseball, but neither were in the hunt for a win when they left the game with the score tied at a run each. Instead, reliever Luke Gregerson took ...

MLB owners move to expand instant replay

In a move which many in baseball find historic, MLB owners look toward a replay system you might see in a Chargers game this season

http://sandiegoreader.com/users/photos/2013/aug/15/51371/ After two days of the August Major League Baseball owners meeting, Commissioner Bud Selig announced that owners have agreed to expand its instant replay beyond what is covered now, which is limited to whether or not a ball is ...

The Padres fought but couldn't get by the Colorado Rockies, in a close game with several missed opportunities

Padres come back on Rockies

·

After an embarrassing loss on Monday, the Padres came back from behind to beat the Rockies

Padres embarrass themselves against Rockies

·

In an almost entirely forgetful game, the Padres fail against the Rockies in every category

Monday night might have been the worst game the Padres ever played. Ray Kroc wouldn’t have grabbed the microphone of the public address announcer to apologize for the team’s poor play, he would have grabbed the nearest trash can and ...

Reds capitalize on Padres lack of timely hitting

·

The Padres couldn't hit when they needed it and the Reds took advantage of it

Padres bleed Reds

The Padres were patient and let the Reds beat themselves

Reds blast Padres in road opener

The bats of the Cincinnati Reds were no match for the Padres as the Friars drop the first game of their road trip

Ah, Cincinnati, the home of weird yet tasty stuff they call chili, with pasta and cheese and a strange, tangy sauce and onions on so on. Cincinnati is also the home of a very good baseball team – in fact, ...
