Morning Dump

Apparently Padres catcher Justin Hatcher had an altercation with a marauding squirrel during San Diego’s 9-7 win over the Rockies on Sunday. After catching and cornering the rodent of destruction, Hatcher came out on the losing end of a fight between man and squirrel when the furry fiend bit Hatcher’s hand and refused to let go. Eventually, though, he did managed to free himself from the animal’s jaws.

It’s a good question, with a clear and simple answer: Yes. The Padres’ ability to win at home hasn’t changed since moving from Qualcomm to Petco; however, their ability to win on the road has improved dramatically in recent years.

On May 19 you can see two heartthrobs from “The Bachelorette” at the San Diego Padres game for a Singles Night event during the game against the Brewers at 7:05 p.m., PT. David Good and Jesse Kovacs weren’t just contestants on “The Bachelorette,” but appeared on season 1 of “Bachelor Pad,” which David won with Natalie Getz from “The Bachelor” on Jason Mesnick’s season.

The bad news is that as the advanced single-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres, Lake Elsinore (12-25) is still stuck in last place in the California League, having won only one out of four games in their series with High Desert and suffering through a three-game losing streak.

Orlando Hudson, who played his second and final rehab game Monday night with Triple-A Tucson, is expected to rejoin the big league club Tuesday in anticipation of coming off the disabled list when he is eligible on Thursday.
