Nick Hundley homered, tripled and drove in a career-high four runs, leading Anthony Bass and the San Diego Padres past the Philadelphia Phillies 6-1 Sunday. A day after snapping a 13-game home losing streak to the Phillies, San Diego posted its first two-game winning streak of the season. Hundley hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning, an RBI triple in the third and two-run homer in the fifth off Joe Blanton (1-3). Hundley began the season in an 0-for-21 slump before emerging more recently. Bass pitched three-hit ball for six innings and allowed an unearned run. He walked five and struck out seven in his sixth career start. Three Padres pitchers combined to hold Philadelphia, which has scored two or fewer runs in 10 of 16 games, scoreless over the final four innings. The split gave San Diego its first non-losing series of the season. The Padres have not won a series against Philadelphia since taking a three-game set in July 2006. Each team made three errors, accounting four u...

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...

Friars Not Playing to Strengths

While last night’s 5 – 1 win over Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies was satisfying in many ways, it does little to mask the multitude of problems this team has with its roster. Constructed with the purpose of succeeding in the offensively constrictive confines of Petco Park, the Padres need to be able to rely on their pitching and defense to remain competitive. When...
