Tough L

Man, what a tough game to start the 2010 campaign. Very tough. Here is the recap:

 In the first inning, the Padres went down 1-2-3. 
In the bottom of the first, along with an Everth Cabrera error that really hurt the Padres, Miguel Montero hit a 2 run single. Bam. Just like that. Down 2-0 versus a fantastic pitcher.
In the second inning, The Padres got their first heat of the season, a double by Chase Headley with 1 out. But they couldn’t get him home, and the score remained 2-0, D-Backs.
In the bottom of the second, the D-Backs went down 1-2-3.
Padres did nothing in the top of the 3rd, but in the bottom of the 3rd Mark Reynolds went deep, a 2 run shot.
In the 4th, the Padres again went down 1-2-3. In the bottom half, Stephen Drew hit an inside the park homer to put the D-Backs up 6-0. 
There was not much action until the top of the 7th, when Adrian Gonzalez doubled. Chase Headley brought him home with a single, making it 6-1.
The score remained 6-1 until, with 2 outs in the top of the 9th, A-Gon and Kyle Blanks went back-to-back, making it 6-3. But that was all the Padres could muster, and the D-Backs win game 1, 6-3.
   It was a tough loss, but they just needed to get their Opening Day jitters out of the way. I’m feeling a win for the Pads tonight, as Chris Young takes the hill versus Edwin Jackson.
Have a good afternoon and night everyone, stay safe, and God Bless!!! 
GO PADRES!!!!!!!!!!

Not much to blog about

Man, Spring Training is in the thick of things and the Padres are 2-7. No worries, though. They’ve been playing good ball. Everybody will be ready for Opening Day. I don’t really follow Spring Training games closely, you know what I mean? It just isn’t like the regular season. I don’t know about you guys, but I am already ready for Opening Day.

I’m not yet locked into baseball, though. I’m more into basketball right now. But when Opening Day comes around, I am surely going to be in the baseball and basketball mood. 
Matt Antonelli has been a real bright spot for the Padres this Spring. He was a guy who fell off the radar last year, and didn’t hit very well. But now, he’s out of that slump, and could maybe be the Padres future 2nd baseman for years to come. 
That’s about all I have for now. 
God bless!!!
