Found September 28, 2012 on Friarhood:
The Padres red hot play of August and early September has seemed to cool down as they lost their second straight series, dropping the final two against the Dodgers at Petco Park. The Padres squeezed out a close win on Tuesday only to be blown out by six runs on Wednesday’s matinee. They were unable to come back in Thursday night’s rubber match after again spotting the Dodgers six unanswered runs before ultimately losing the game and the series. The Padres were officially eliminated from wild-card during the series but the Dodgers still trail the Cardinals by three games with six to go. San Diego will start their final home series Friday night as the take on the San Francisco Giants before hitting the road to Milwaukee for the final three games of the year. Below is a recap of the Padres final confrontation with the hated Dodgers in 2012.   Tuesday, September 25th, 2012 Padres 2, Dodgers 1 WP Edinson Volquez (11-11) 7IP 6H 0R 0ER 2BB 4K 0HR LP Josh Beckett (6-14) 5.2IP 5H 2R 1ER 2BB...

It must be getting close to the end of the season because the news is hard to come by with the Padres of late. The MLB world only cares about winning teams, and since the Padres are not winning right now there is no news here apparently. Of course I have come to expect this come the offseason, but not with a week left to play. I thought we would still have some stuff to talk about...

If you're going to lose a game you might as well lose big right? Day games usually go in the favor of the Padres, just look at how well we normally do on Sundays. But yesterday the Dodgers got the better of Clayton Richard for once. Normally it's the other way around, Richard usually does pretty well against the hated team from the north. And trust me I really hate this team...

The Padres have dropped another series, this time against the Dodgers. The sad part is they are not losing close games they are getting blown out. Yes we have young pitchers who...
