Bats Fail to Save Jordan Lyles’ First Start of 2018

May 10, 2018

Petco Park- San Diego, California The last time Jordan Lyles started for the Padres was a forgettable night where he allowed seven runs on 10 hits in 2017. Thursday night against the St. Louis Cardinals was the polar opposite. Lyles allowed five hits to the Cardinals, four to Marcel Ozuna and Tommy Pham, in his first start of the 2018 season, allowing only one earned run in five innings pitched….

Padres’ Robbie Erlin Roughed Up in Return as a Starter

April 16, 2018

The path back to the Major Leagues has been a long one for Robbie Erlin. The crafty lefty suffered a torn UCL in 2016 requiring Tommy John surgery, which led to him missing most of 2016 and all of 2017. Against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night, he made his first start of the season, filling in for Luis Perdomo, who is serving a five-game suspension for his role…

Framing the Friars: Rizzo Collides with Hedges as Cubs Edge Padres 3-2

June 19, 2017

Understandably,  many Padres fans came into the game pretty much expecting a Friars…


Framing the Friars: Lamet Gets Back On Track Against Brewers

June 17, 2017

Before those starts, his ERA was 2.70. Through those eight innings, his ERA inflated quicker than an outdoor tent, rising to 8.50.

Framing the Friars: The Ball is Juiced?

June 17, 2017

Following a three-game home sweep against the Cincinnati Reds, the San Diego Padres came into Miller Park on Friday with confidence.

And he did not disappoint, as the right-hander launched an absolute moon shot over the outfield…


Framing the Friars: Padres Strike Out 17 Times Against Nats

May 28, 2017

The Padres knew it wasn’t going to be easy. Not only are the Washington Nationals arguably the best team in the National League, they have two of the best pitchers in the game in Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg. The Padres somehow got unlucky enough to draw both in this weekend’s three-game series in Washington. Predictably, things have not gone well. In just two games, the Padres have managed to…
