Padres Series Recap: Marlins Capitalize on Mistakes to Take Series

April 23, 2017

The suddenly-hot San Diego Padres took on the Miami Marlins in this three-game weekend set. As I predicted, the matchup on Sunday would decide this series. It certainly did, and the result was not in the Padres’ favor. The San Diego Padres are a young team, and their style of play will be maddening to watch from time to time. Manuel Margot, Austin Hedges, and Hunter Renfroe are all doing…


Padres Series Recap: Padres Take Series from Snakes, Winning 2 of 3

April 20, 2017

The Padres came home from a rough road trip in Atlanta, where the team was swept by the Braves, looking for comfort. This 2017 season will be a long one for Padre fans, as the team is not built to compete just yet. There are positives, though, to this team, and a focused fan must concentrate on the big picture rather than look at the standings. I know that is…

San Diego Padres Take Two of Three in Coors from Rockies

April 12, 2017

  The Padres won their first series on the road in 2017, taking two out of three from the Rockies. Some great pitching, timely hitting, and a cycle (!!!) helped the Padres get back to .500…. Game 1:   On The Bump: Jared Cossart took the mound and pitched surprisingly well for the Friars, throwing four scoreless innings against a potent Rockies lineup. He only walked one batter and scattered…

Padres Series Recap: Padres Start Off 2017 With Left Foot At Dodger Stadium

April 7, 2017

The San Diego Padres started off their 2017 MLB season this past Monday, April 3. The opening series of the 2017 season was a four-game set against the Los Angeles Dodgers at Dodger Stadium.

Padres Series Recap: Padres Swept by Diamondbacks in Season Finale

October 3, 2016

The 2016 MLB regular season is finally complete. As a San Diego Padres fan, there definitely is this sense of relief. The 2016 season was horrible when it came to wins and loses. Fittingly enough, the Padres would get swept in their last series of the season. The Diamondbacks would take all three games to avoid finishing last in the N.L. West. Unfortunately, that title would now fall to the…

Padres Series Recap: Dodgers Take 2 of 3 From Padres in L.A.

September 4, 2016

The San Diego Padres lost two out of three games from the Los Angeles Dodgers this weekend. Overall this series would be average, nothing really spectacular, but some decent games mixed in there for your viewing pleasure. The pitching would really turn out to be the downfall for the Padres in this series. The offense would do fine except for the second game of the series. But the pitching would…
