    Baseball fans line up to get into Petco Park before the San Diego Padres home opener.

    The Padres brass is once again talking about making changes to Petco Park.

    Forget the field, concentrate on the roster.

    The Padres managed only two runs on 7 hits, losing to the Washington Nationals 7-2.

    Joe Weiland took the loss. He's 0-3.

    His counterpart, Jordan Zimmerman drove in a run with an rbi single in the second inning, as the Nats got out to a 2-0 lead.

    Heck even Nats relief pitcher Tom Gorzellany had an RBI single.

    Orlando Hudson had one of the Padres hits, a solo homerun off Zimmerman in the 5th inning, his first of the year.

    Cameron Maybin got the other rbi, even though he went 0-4. His batting average dropped to 167. The Nats broke it open with four runs in the 7th.

    So the Padres drop to 5 and 14. They'll try to avoid being swept.

    Edinson Volquez (0-2) goes for his first win against Edwin Jackson.
