Orlando Hudson 1-3 BB,K.  I know I'm pretty hard on Hudson, but he seems to be putting together better at bats lately.  He also looked solid in the field tonight.  Joe Thatcher 1.2IP, 0H, 0ER, 0K, 0BB.  Joe was perfect through five batters tonight.  The Bad:Josh Spence 1/3 IP, 4H, 1ER, 1HRA Rough night for the Aussie.  After giving up the homerun to Victorino, Spence gave up three consecutive singles forcing Black to pull the Spence after registering only one out.  The Ugly:Andrew Cashner 1IP, 2H, 0ER, 1K.  Cashner's line doesn't look bad, but what it doesn't show is that the three runners he inherited all scored and were charged to Volquez.  I don't blame Cash though, the guy is tie for the most pitching a...

That strange "W" next to the Padres name means that we won a game yesterday. Now I know what you are all thinking: "Winning? What is that?" Cory Luebke dominated the Phillies last night. In doing so he beat Roy Halladay. That is something to be proud of Mr. Luebke. The Padres try to win today as well in order to split the series. Also if they do win it will be...

I apologize in advance if the quality of this is lacking today. I am writing it way earlier than I normally do today because I am seeing the Dalai Lama speak at SDSU. Because of that I am up at 5:30 putting this together for you all to have at a decent hour. The downfall to that though is that most websites haven't written stuff for today yet. Either way I did find some stuff...
