Padres News: Padres Drop One In The Bay


Well, at least it wasn’t a no hitter.

The San Diego Padres headed up the coast to the Bay Area for Game 1 of their series with the defending World Series Champion San Francisco Giants.

Yonder Alonso got the day off at first base today to rest his back, after taking a nasty hit yesterday.

Tyson Ross got the start for the Padres. Ross gave up seven hits and two runs, which on a usual day would probably mean a win. Unfortunately, Giant’s pitcher Madison Bumgarner dominated the Padres offense, holding them to just two hits (which they didn’t get until the seventh inning). This brings Ross’ record to 1-3, which is a shame because Ross is pitching well but not getting the offensive help when he needs it. I thought we supposedly solved this this off-season?

Relax, that last sentence is just in jest. San Francisco is a tough park to hit and Bumgarner is an even tougher pitcher to hit off of. No run games are inevitable during the course of an entire season, lets just hope they can bring the rain tomorrow.

In Austin Hedges news, the recently called up catching prospect did get to pitch-hit for Ross in the eighth inning tonight, but struck out on four pitches.

The Padres will try to even the series tomorrow. Tune in to Friars On Base for a full recap of the action.
