If a Major League Baseball team hits four home runs in one game it would be natural to assume that team was at least in a position to win at the end.
But in 2016 the Padres don't do things like normal teams do. So let's just rip the band aid off really fast and get this one over with.
The Padres hit four home runs, one each by Wil Myers, Matt Kemp, Melvin Upton Jr., and Adam Rosales, but they were all solo homers. They had just three other hits while the Marlins pounded out 19 hits in a 13-4 win at Petco Park on Monday night.
San Diego starting pitcher Colin Rea gave up eight runs, although only six were earned, in 2.2 innings to take the loss. Miami scored seven times in the 3rd inning alone.
Drew Pomeranz will try to help the Friars bounce back when he takes the mound on Tuesday night against Marlins starter Tom Koehler.
