Besides being an ace at the top of the rotation, James Shields has been praised for his leadership. James Shields took on that mantle recently when he made a sign hanging in the Padres clubhouse which reads “If you don’t like it, play better.” According to an interview with San Diego sports radio station Mighty 1090, Shields said the sign was all about accountability. “You...
The Mets (29-23) were defeated by the Padres (25-28) by a score of 7-2 at Petco Park Wednesday morning.
Noah Syndergaard started for the Mets, turning in an interesting outing. Enduring some questionable calls by home plate umpire CB Bucknor, he went 4 innings, allowing 7 earned runs on 10 hits despite striking out 10 and walking none. He was hitting a good amount of his...

Last night the Mets were on the right side of history, as the team struck out a bunch of times, yet won the game 7-0. Doing his best Andrew Cashner impersonation, Noah Syndergaard went 4 innings, struck out 10 hitters, let up 10 hits and let up 7 runs. Not the best night for Thor and the Mets, as they would end up losing 7-2.
Ian Kennedy entered the game with a 7.15 ERA, but left...

SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Padres have reinstated first baseman Yonder Alonso from the 15-day disabled list.
Alonso, on the DL with right shoulder bruise retroactive to May 8, was hitting .333 with one home run and 10 RBIs when he suffered the injury May 7 against Arizona. He dived for a ground ball and landed on his shoulder.

Major League Baseball’s second update on National League All-Star voting saw the Padres’ Justin Upton move up among outfielders. Upton moved up two spots from last week and now sits at seventh. Between him and the top three outfield spots are three Giants: Nori Aoki, Angel Pagan and Hunter Pence. Upton is in a virtual tie with Pence trailing him by only 542 votes. The Padre outfielder...

Hitter of the month:
LF – Justin Upton
May totals: 343/418/546 – 6 HR, 4 2B, 23 RBI
There is little doubt the Padres’ left fielder was the brightest spot in an otherwise dreary month. There is reason to shudder when imagining what May ’15 would have been like without the younger Upton who lead the team in nearly every major offensive category while posting an OPS almost...
On Monday night Andrew Cashner recorded a career high number of strikeouts against the New York Mets. Believe it or not, this was the only positive to be taken from his outing. Cashner’s pitching line ended up looking like something straight out of a bad baseball movie — the type of movie where it is painfully obvious the screenwriter has never watched a baseball game in his...

Jacob deGrom kept it simple in another sensational outing Monday night against the San Diego Padres. Just as he did in his last two DeGrominant outings, deGrom continued to attack opposing hitters with his fastball, throwing a fastball on over 67% of his pitches. Additionally, deGrom’s fastball lead to outs in 18 of the 24 Padres batters...
That’s right folks! The Padres and Pints crew will be emerging from our parents basements to shoot an episode with special guest Jesse Agler at Mike Hess Brewing in North Park, immediately following the Padres/Braves game and you are all invited!

Noah Syndergaard's value to the New York Mets is going beyond pitching. His surprising offense, however, is simply an added bonus.
A day after Jacob deGrom turned in a gem, Syndergaard looks to deliver another of his own as the visiting Mets face the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night.
Syndergaard (2-2, 2.55 ERA) is so far living up to the hype as one of New York's prized prospects...
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- While a lack of run support has been the norm for Andrew Cashner, the Padres' pitcher rarely has an outing like this one.
Cashner failed to make it out of the fifth inning despite striking out a career-high 12 in the New York Mets' 7-0 win over San Diego on Monday night.
Mets starter Jacob deGrom (6-4) took a perfect game into the sixth and finished allowing two...

Trea Turner, just 22, is currently hitting .333/.405/.508 in Double-A San Antonio, an affiliate in the San Diego Padres’ organization. Feels good to have a guy like that on the farm, doesn’t it?

Andrew Cashner took the mound for the Padres on Monday night, and unsurprisingly, the Padres didn’t score a run for him. Though perhaps the Padres can’t be faulted this time as they were going up against the Mets’ Jacob deGrom, the reigning NL Rookie of the Year.Although Cashner did give up six runs (five earned) in less than five innings, he also struck out 12 batters, a career...
SAN DIEGO (AP) Jacob deGrom took a perfect game into the sixth and allowed two hits over eight innings, leading the New York Mets to a 7-0 win over the San Diego Padres on Monday night.
The lanky right-hander struck out the first four batters and did not allow a baserunner until Clint Barmes led off the sixth with single through the right side of the infield.

The San Diego Padres could be a much more imposing force in the National League if they can learn to utilize outings from tough-luck Andrew Cashner.
After finally earning a win for the right-hander, the Padres will look to keep their offense rolling into Cashner's start Monday night against the New York Mets, losers of seven straight on the road.
