On muggy night, ball flies in Padres win over Phillies

Tuesday’s first pitch at Petco Park was thrown in sweltering heat. The skies had darkened, but the thermometer registered at 88 degrees. Within the last hour, the grounds crew had pulled a rarely used tarp off the infield. A thunderstorm -- an unexpected phenomenon in San Diego, much less in September -- had threatened to unleash rain before relenting. It was in such a setting...

Home Plate Plays

As Scott accurately summarized, last night the Padres were blown out by Milwaukee 10-1.  The Padres had only one good look at that game, loading the bases in the second inning with two out and the score tied.  Sadly Will Venable reprised his first-half role instead of the Good August Venable, swinging and missing at 3 high fastballs to end the inning. Two batters earlier, the Padres...

Positioning sure wasn’t on the diminutive utilityman’s side. “Off the bat...
