The Padres lost Friday night, 6-0 at the hands of the Cincinnati Reds. San Diego only managed three hits — all of them singles.
Cincinnati jumped out of the gate quickly, as SS Zack Cozart led the game off with a solo homer to give the Reds the early lead off of Padres starter Kip Wells.

Wells pitched very well for the Padres, as he allowed only one run through six innings. Wells started the seventh by walking the leadoff batter, then allowing a two-run homer to Reds catcher Ryan Hanigan to put the game out of reach. The Reds added two runs in the eighth, and one more in the ninth, and won easily.
Kip Wells takes the loss for the Padres, but did give the Padres a quality outing, going 6+ innings, allowing the three earned runs. Chase Headley singled in the ninth, to push his hitting streak to 11 games.
Bronson Arroyo went the distance for the Reds, allowing just three hits and one walk. The Padres will send Clayton Richard to the mound in game three of the series Saturday night.
I have been blogging for the last few years, mostly about sports. I grew up a huge San Diego sports fan, and I love following all the teams out here. I consider myself a baseball guy, but I love the NFL and NBA as well!
