On Broadway, it's not odd to see a "One Night Only" performance. Just last month, Usher showed up for one night to play a role in Fuerza Bruta.
In 2008, an entire musical, Glory Days, opened and closed on the same night.
It's one of the unique and exciting aspects of New York. Unfortunately, the Padres offense adopted the practice for their trip to the Big Apple.
On Thursday, they scored a season-high 11 runs to beat the Mets. Alas, that tour de force was not destined for a long run like Cats.
On Friday, it was back to normal. The Padres scored a mere one run, on a first inning sacrifice fly by Jesus Guzman, and mustered just 4 hits in a 6-1 loss to the Mets at Citi Field.
Anthony Bass had a rare bad outing. Bass, who's been the lone bright spot in a Padres rotation that has 4 pitchers on the disabled list, allowed all 6 runs in 5 1/3 innings.
With the loss, the Padres fall to 17-30 on the season.
