    Padres Still Can't Find Offense in San Francisco

    I believe it’s safe to say the Padres are just fine with not seeing Kevin Gausman again for a while. In fact, if he was traded to another league (in another country, just to be safe), that would be great. Gausman continued to baffle San Diego hitters on Saturday afternoon at Oracle Park in San Francisco, tossing 6.0 innings of…

    Snell Struggles, Padres Lose in San Francisco

    It would not be accurate to say something is wrong with Blake Snell. But it would also not be accurate to say he’s 100% right. Snell was on the mound to start a 3-game series against the Giants on Friday night in San Francisco. He only gave up one hit in 4.2 innings … but allowed four runs because of…

    Padres Have a New Partner … in Las Vegas

    Bottom of the 9th. Two outs. Bases loaded. One-run game. Every Little Leaguer has played that scenario out in their minds, inevitably coming up with the walkoff knock or game-ending strikeout. The 9th inning of a close baseball game is one of the most exciting and unique experiences in sports. At Petco Park this year, you may have noticed something...

    Darvish, Cronenworth Deliver 4-2 Win Over Pirates

    Yu Darvish has been the bullpen’s best friend in his first season with the San Diego Padres. Although he gave up a 2-0 lead and didn’t factor in the decision, the tall right-hander pitched into the sixth inning Wednesday night, when the Padres beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 4-2 to take two of three. Jake Cronenworth hit a go-ahead, two-run...

    The Padres Offense Starts Late, But Does Enough In 2-0 Win Over Pirates

    The San Diego Padres didn’t get a hit until the 7th inning, but it didn’t matter. The Padres beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 2-0 at Petco Park, with all 2 runs and all their hits coming in the 7th inning. Pirates starting pitcher Tyler Anderson mystified Padres batters through the first 6 innings. Anderson carried a no-hitter into the 7th b...

    Padres Set Minor League Rosters

    In 2020, Major League Baseball got in 60 games plus a full postseason. Minor League Baseball, however, had to sit out the whole year. Teams were able to keep a couple dozen of their top prospects around at “alternate training sites” but most players in the lower levels (thing Double A and below) basically missed an entire year of profes...

    Friars Frustrated in Loss to Giants

    A sweep would have been nice but against a first place team, on a day where nothing really got going, the Padres will take a series win. San Diego left eight runners on base in a 7-1 loss to the Giants on Sunday afternoon at Petco Park. Fernando Tatis Jr. started the game off with a bang. In the first…

    Home Runs and Punchouts Lead Padres to Win Over Giants

    During his career with the Rays, Blake Snell was not allowed to go very deep in games because of an organizational belief it’s not beneficial to allow starters to do that. After being traded to the Padres, Snell said he wanted to change that. He’s still figuring out how to do it, but when he does the rest of...

    Yu Da Man! Darvish Deals as Padres Beat Giants

    The Padres and Giants started their 3-game set at Petco Park on Friday night owners of the top two team ERAs in Major League Baseball. The odds suggested we weren’t going to see a whole lot of offense. That’s exactly how it played out. Yu Darvish struck out 12 in 6.1 innings of a 3-2 San Diego win that pulled…

    LISTEN: Padres Finally Put Things Together … Now Can They Keep it Up?

    It's Official: The Dodgers Have A True Challenger in the NL West And it's The Padres

    The Dodgers have won eight straight National League West division titles and played in three of the last four World Series, winning it last year. The Padres went 14 years between playoff appearances with just one winning record. The Padres have been less of a rival than an annoyance. Not anymore. These franchises played seven times over the last 10...
