5 straight wins!

Saturday August 1, 2009

The San Diego Padres won their fifth straight game tonight 4-2 over the Milwaukee Brewers at Petco Park.

The newest Padre, Clayton Richard, threw 5 2/3 innings of 2 hit ball, Kevin Kouzmanoff went 2-3 and drove in his 58th RBI and Will Venable hit his 4th home run of the season.

And Krasovic says this is the least talented team in baseball?

I can't wait to see what this team can do when they stay healthy.

Believe it or not, the Padres now have a .500 record at home - 26-26.

Can the Padres get the sweep over the slumping Brewers?

Newest Padre carries No Hitter into the 5th

Saturday August 1, 2009

The newest Padres pitcher, Clayton Richard, carried a no hitter into the 5th inning against the Milwaukee Brewers before having it broken up by a 1 out single by Mike Cameron.

He also had a shutout through 5 2/3. Then with 2 out in the 6th, Fielder crushed a ball to RF and that was all for Richard. His line: 5 2/3 IP, 2 hits 3 BB, 5 k and 1 run.

All in all he did very well in his Padres debut.

Then the bullpen came in and it took one whole pitch to blow it.

I don't know if anyone noticed, but the left handed Richard threw as hard or harder than Peavy, hitting 94-96 consistently with his fastball. How long has been since a Padres lefty threw mid 90's ?
