The unpredictability of Coors Field continued yesterday. You never know who is going to win a game in that place. A deep fly ball that would be a routine out in Petco just keeps on going in Denver. That was the case last night when Casey Kelly gave up the 7 runs in the third, and Brad Brach gave up the 3 runs in the 7th. Ultimately though the Padres were done in by lack of defense. Any time this team loses I turn straight to the errors column to see what shows up there. Sure enough 2 errors were committed yesterday which aided in the long innings. When the Padres play solid defense then we can win a game, but once the defense gets shoddy we run into problems. Thus we lost a series to a weaker team because of it.

Tucson loses a close one as Ross Ohlendorf gave up a home run to the first batter he faced in the 10th inning. Nathan Freiman and Jason Hagerty both go yard as Robbie Erlin collects 9 strikeouts over 5 innings and the Missions win 4-3. Thanks to a valiant effort by their pitching staff, the Storm manage to win 1-0.Hitting Prospect of the Day: Nathan FreimanPitching Prospect of the...
Tucson loses another close one, despite a great pitching performance from Thad Weber. Edinson Rincon collected 3 hits as the Missions lose to the Hooks 3-1. The Storm clinches a playoff spot thanks to a victory and a Quakes loss. This is their 8th consecutive year making the playoffs. Fort Wayne is playoff-bound too as they split the double header. Yeison Asencio went 1-2 and clinched...
The San Diego Padres have three of the hottest hitters in the major leagues -- third baseman Chase Headley and outfielders Will Venable and Cameron Maybin. Headley was 4-for-5 Sunday at Colorado with his 23rd homer and a career-high six RBI in the Padres' 11-10 loss. The six RBI were two shy of the Padres' single-game record and the most by a Padre since Adrian Gonzalez...
As I was flipping channels last night I managed to stumble on the Padres – Dodgers game. Andrew Werner, a 25 year-old rookie making only his third career start, was on the hill for the Padres. It only took me a few pitches to determine I should stick with the game for a little while.
Although the Dodgers would eventually win the game in extra-innings, Werner pitched a great game...
All good things must come to end, and the Padres streak of consecutive series won did at three when they dropped the last two games against the Rockies after winning the first. The Padres won a close on Friday, 5-4 before getting blown out 9-1 on Saturday. The Padres retook the lead on Sunday after allowing a seven-run fourth before giving the lead back in the seventh, ultimately...
With just a few games left to play, Fort Wayne is the only franchise in the Padres minor league system confirmed to be in this years playoffs. With several highly touted prospects within their ranks, the Tin caps can boast several standout performances for the month of August but Catcher Austin Hedges gets the nod. Taken in the 2nd round of the 2011 draft, Hedges had a commitment...
I thought the loss against the Rockies was the end of heartbreaks for this Padres team. I was proven wrong last night against the Dodgers. What started out so promising with Chase Headley’s 24th homerun, ended in utter defeat in extra innings. Any time the game goes into extra innings while the Padres are on the road I just know something bad is going to happen. It never bodes...
Despite a great start from Josh Spence, Tucson melts down in the 9th inning and loses 4-3. San Antonio and Lake Elsinore lose by a combined 18 runs. They both endured struggling offenses (2 combined runs) and poor pitching performances. Frank Garces turned in a great start, and Jankowski extended his hitting streak to 15 games, but Fort Wayne loses 5-3.Hitting Prospect of the Day...
I guess if you’re going to lose a game after winning a bunch, then you might as well lose big. Edinson Volquez had a rough night to say the least, and for once Jhoulys Chacin had a very good outing. In fact, the Padres made the Rockies look like a great time last night. Nine runs is a lot to overcome even if they only needed two to pull off the victory. The Padres had chances...
Chris Nelson wasn't sure he had hit the ball hard enough for a homer.
When he saw the saw ball disappear over the fence as he rounded first base, out came a celebratory fist pump, and a day marked by frustration at the plate and in the field turned noticeably bright.
Nelson had his go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning, and the Colorado Rockies overcame a career...
It was noted in last month’s player feature that Catcher and DH Tommy Medica has had a breakout season. This month we want to highlight the return to prominence of infielder Chris Bisson. Drafted as a 2B, Bisson has played SS for the most part this season. Over the past three professional years he has been deployed at...
Chris Nelson had a go-ahead, three-run home run in the seventh inning and the Colorado Rockies overcame a career-best six RBIs by Chase Headley to beat the San Diego Padres 11-10 on Sunday.
Tyler Colvin and Ramon Hernandez also homered and Dexter Fowler had three hits and two RBIs to help the Rockies win two of three to snap the Padres' string of three consecutive series victories...
