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...
