Mike Dee says Selig saved baseball in San Diego

Ross & Almonte Beat Selig's Boys

Tyson Ross was the definition of a hard luck case in his last start, throwing a 4-hit, 2-run complete game while still taking a loss. Things went a little different tonight. Tyson wasn't nearly as...

Well, that game was a marathon. Thirteen pitchers took the mound over four and a half hours. Ian Kennedy had a weird night. He only allowed a pair of hits while striking out seven, but he also...

Padres Beat Braves A Billion To One

Eric Stults tossed a gem tonight, giving up just a single unearned run on 2 hits and 4 walks in 6.1 innings. And thus ends what needs to be said about the lefty tonight, because he could have...

Despaigne Has Trouble With The Cardinals

The shine is appears to be wearing off of Odrisamer Despaigne, who gave up 6 runs on 9 hits in 5.2 innings today. He didn't get much support from his offense, with the Padres bats only picking up 3...

Padres Offense Give Hahn A Dozen Birthday Presents

Jesse Hahn pitched an incredible game tonight, giving up just one run on four hits and two walks in seven innings of work, but the rookie could have taken it easy on his 25th birthday. The Padres...

Despaigne Tosses A Gem

48

Man, what a game today. Odrisamer Despaigne, who I should remind you is a 27-year old rookie, came within four outs of the Padres first ever no-hitter. Unfortunately, just after history slipped...

Tyson Ross Shuts Down New York

2

The Padres offense picked up a whopping 6 runs tonight (maybe Huston Street was dragging them down?), but they only needed one. That was all thanks to Tyson Ross, who threw 7 shutout innings,...

Padres Score 4 Runs, Still Manage To Lose

7

Is there anything worse than losing a game after coming from behind to tie it? At least tonight wasn't a total loss. Ian Kennedy and Bartolo Colon were both equally mediocre tonight, with each...

Brooks Conrad Hits First Hometown Homer

Sure, the Padres lost the series against their division rival today. And sure, it was the second game in a row that the bullpen gave up the game-winning run. But on the upside, a pair of home runs...

Bullpen Gives Up Longballs In Loss

Tyson Ross Throws First Career Complete Game

12

In Tyson Ross's season and a half with the Padres, he's proven himself to be a reliable middle of the rotation starter. You know, he's the guy that keeps you in the game, but never quite dominates...

Seth Smith Is Sticking Around

Padres Beat Reds A Billion To Two

4

Ian Kennedy has pitched solidly this season, but like most of the Padres' rotation, hasn't had much run support, averaging 2.4 runs per game. Tonight was a little different, as the offense rained...

D'backs Despair Against Despaigne

20

Odrisamer Despaigne (henceforth referred to as "Odie") was just terrible today. His ERA rose 0.66 points! Of course, it started at zero, and those points came on single run he allowed in 6.2...

Padres Lose On Montero's Homer

Stults Gets No Love From Offense

2

Poor Eric Stults. The struggling lefty turned in the best performance of his season, and he got an L to show for it. He kept the Dodgers to a measly 2 runs over 7 innings, but the Padres offense...

Mistakes Cost Padres In 4-2 Loss

5

If you could see every stat from tonight's game but the runs, you might say it was a pretty evenly matched games. Both the Padres and the Dodgers had 8 hits and 3 walks tonight, and our boys only...

Padres Walk Off After Epic Comeback

Fans Gather At Petco To Remember Tony Gwynn
