Brewers 8 @ Padres 6

1 strike away from the first win of the year before Ryan Braun ripped the Pads fans hearts out. Defense didn't do Brad Hand any favors in the 9th with an error and another ball that probably should have been caught that dropped for a hit in the 9th, but they went into the 9th with a 3 run lead and Hand was an All Star last year, pick your teammates up!! Lorenzo Cain started the game with a leadoff double, stole 3rd, and after Christian Yelich lined out, Braun scored Cain on a groundout, and later in the frame Domingo Santana added an RBI double for a 2-0 lead. Pads went back-to-back in the 2nd to take a 3-2 lead with Corey Spangenberg swatting a 2 run shot to tie it at 2 and than Austin Hedges went deep to put the Pads up 3-2. Manuel Margot made it a 4-2 game in the 4th with an RBI single, before Braun got one back in the Brewers half of the 5th with a sac fly to make it 4-3. Carlos Asuaje doubled in the 7th to make it 5-3 and Eric Hosmer had his first Pads RBI in the 8th to make it 6-3. Manny Pina and Jesus Aguilar singled to start the 9th, Orlando Arcia grounded back to Hand which should have been a double play but at the very least 1 out but Hand bobbled it and got nobody out. Jonathan Villar singled which made it 6-4, Cain had a slow groundout to Galvis to make it a 6-5 game and after Yelich grounded into a fielders choice Hand had Braun in an 0-2 count but Braun had a 3 run homer. Corey Knebel after blowing the save Thursday, got the Pads in order 1-2-3 with 3 strikeouts in the 9th. Jhoulys Chacin allowed 4 runs on 7 hits (2 homers) with 2 walks and 1 strikeout in 3.1 innings, Oliver Drake (1-0) was the beneficiary of Braun's heroics as he picks up the win despite allowing 1 run on 2 hits with a walk and 2 strikeouts, and Kneble (1st save) pitched a hitless 1-2-3 9th with 3 strikeouts. Joey Lucchesi allowed 3 runs on 7 hits with 0 walks and 1 strikeout in 4.2 innings in his major league debut, Craig Stammen (1st hold) and Kirby Yates (1st hold) pitched 2 hitless innings with 2 strikeouts, Hand (0-1, 1st blown save) allowed 5 runs (but only 2 earned) on 4 hits (1 homer) with a strikeout in 1 inning.

The finale of the series is on Saturday evening. Brent Suter (3-2, 3.42 in 2017) starts for the Brewers and he'll be opposed by Luis Perdomo (8-11, 4.67 in '17) who starts for the Pads. Game time scheduled for 8:40

Brewers 7 @ Pads 3. New look Brewers certainly flexed their muscles this series. Travis Shaw singled in the first to put the Brewers up 1-0. Pads would take a 2-1 lead on the bottom half on Galvis' first homer of the year. Brewers would get those 2 right back when Shaw had a 2 RBI ground rule double, and Hosmer would tie the game in the bottom half with a 2 out double. From there it would be all Brewers though as Brewers pitching retired 19 of the final 21 Padres batters that came to the plate after that Hosmer double. Brewers took the lead for good in the 4th on a Yelich double, who tied his career high for hits in a game with 5, and than Cain drove in Yelich to make it 5-3. Brewers would add the final 2 runs in the 8th when....you guess it....Yelich & Cain had RBI singles. In this 3 game series Yelich finished .500 (7-14) and Cain finished .571 (8-14). Brent Suter (1-0) allowed 3 runs on 5 hits (1 homer) with 1 walk and 4 strikeouts in 5 innings and Josh Hader (2nd hold) pitched 2 hitless innings with 4 strikeouts. Luis Perdomo (0-1) allowed 5 runs on 7 hits with 4 walks and 7 strikeouts in 4 innings.

Both teams have a rare Sunday off. Brewers will be in transit back to Milwaukee as they get set for their home opener Monday afternoon against the Cardinals while the Padres will stay in San Diego and welcome the Rockies in for the first of 6 series. Chad Betis (2-4, 5.05 in 2017) starts for the Rockies while the Pads will give the ball to Bryan Mitchell (1-1, 5.79 in '17 with the Yankees mostly out of the bullpen [also recorded 1 save]). Game time scheduled for 10:10.

Rockies 7 @ Padres 4.

Nolan Arenado had a sac fly that scored Charlie Blackmon who lead off the game with a double and Wil Myers had a 1 out homer in the bottom half to tie the score. Blackmon with a great defensive play to end the Pads second: Galvis walked with 1 out, and after an A.J. Ellis line out, pitcher Bryan Mitchell, in his second career at bat after starting his career with the Yankees in the AL had a 40 foot infield single for his first major league hit and Margot walked to load the bases for Myers who laced one to CF which Blackmon made a jumping catch to end the inning. Not sure it was quite high enough for a grand slam, but it would’ve scored 2 easily and with Margot on first running on contact probably all 3 score. Unfortunately, when you start 0-3 those are the breaks you get, if the Pads end up sweeping the Brewers and are 3-0 instead maybe it’s a couple feet higher and clears the fence for a grand slam, or Blackmon mistimes the jump, or it bounces off his glove and the Pads get the 3 or even 4 runs. And of course the Roxs come right back and take the lead the next half inning: DJ LeMahieu leads off the inning with a walk, goes to second on a Mitchell error on a pickoff, goes to 3rd on an Arenado ground out and scores on a Carlos Gonzalez double, and then Ian Desmond follows with a double. Hosmer & Asuaje would get doubles in the bottom half of the inning to get the Pads back to within 1 at 3-2. Arenado walked to begin the 5th and came home 2 batters later on Desmond’s second homer of the year which just cleared the CF fence to put the Roxs up 5-2. Rockies greeted reliever Kyle McGrath rudely as Blackmon & LeMahieu went back-to-back in a span of 3 pitches to start the 9th. Spangenberg had a leadoff home run to begin the 9th, and a Pirela triple made the score 7-4, but he was left there as Wade Davis came on to retire Asuaje to end the game and kept the Padres with the Royals as the only 2 teams that have yet to record a win on the season after the Tigers (0-3 coming into the day) got their first win this afternoon. Chad Betis (1-0) allowed 2 runs on 5 hits (1 homer) with 4 walks and 4 strikeouts in 5 innings, Adam Ottavino (1st hold), Bryan Shaw (1st hold), and Jake McGee (2nd hold) combined to pitch 3 innings allowing only 1 hit and striking out 2 and Davis (2nd save) retired the only batter he faced to record the easy save.

Game 2 of the series is on Tuesday. Kyle Freeland (11-11, 4.10 in 2017) starts for the Rockies and he'll be opposed by Tyson Ross (3-3, 7.71) who's coming off an injury-plagued season with the Texas Rangers and coming back to San Diego for 2018. Game time slated for 10:10.

Rockies 4 @ Padres 8.

Christian Villanueva homered in the 2nd to put the Pads up 1-0. Nolan Arenado in the top of the 3rd, would double home 2 runs to put the Roxs up 2-1, but the Pads would catch a break as DJ LeMahieu would get thrown out at home for the 2nd out of the inning, so Tyson Ross would avert any further damage. Chris Iannetta would single home Gerardo Parra in the 4th to make it a 3-1 Rockies lead. Villanueva would homer for the second time in as many at bats in the 4th to cut the Pads deficit back to 1 at 2-3, and then would take the lead for good in the 6th on a Freddy Galvis 2 RBI single, and would add a 3rd in the inning on a Carlos Asuaje fielder’s choice which scored Villanueva. Villanueva would cap the Pads scoring in the 7th with his 3rd homer of the game, this one a 2 run homer to LF becoming the 7th Padre to hit 3 homers in a game, and in his 14th career game became the second fastest player to hit 3 home runs in a game after the Rockies Bobby Estella did it in 10 career games back in 1997. Rockies would get a 1 out walk by Parra in the 9th and after Story flied out Kazuhisa Makita would allow an Iannetta RBI single and a walk to Ryan McMahon, before Brad Hand came on in what was now a save situation and struck out Pat Valaika on 4 pitches. Kyle Freeland (0-1) allowed 4 runs on 5 hits (2 homers) with 2 walks and 6 strikeouts in 5.1, and Scott Oberg (1st blown save) allowed 1 run on 1 hit in 2/3 of an inning. Ross (1-0) allowed 3 runs on 5 hits with 3 walks and 2 strikeouts in 6 innings in his return to San Diego after a 1 year hiatus in Texas, Craig Stammen (2nd hold) pitched a hitless inning of work, and Hand (1st save) struck out the only batter he faced to lock down the win. The Padres, after the Royals had won earlier in the day, were the last winless team in baseball, so now the Pittsburgh Pirates (at 4-0) are the only team remaining that has a zero in the win or loss column as the Nationals, also at 4-0, also lost earlier in the evening.

The series continues on Wednesday evening with Clayton Richard (0-0, 1.29) taking the ball for the Pads against Jon Gray (0-1, 6.75). Game time scheduled for 10:10.

Wednesday: Rockies 5 @ Padres 2.

Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story would each have RBI doubles in the 1st. After Clayton Richard got the first 2 outs of the second, Charlie Blackmon, and DJ LeMahieu would single, each would advance a base on a wild pitch, Arenado got intentionaly walked and then Ian Desmond had a 2 RBI single. Eric Hosmer would have an RBI force out in the 8th for the games final run. Richard (0-1) allowed 5 runs on 8 hits with 3 walks and 6 strikeouts in 5 innings. Jon Gray (1-1) allowed 4 hits and 7 strikeouts in 7 scoreless innings. Wade Davis (3rd save) had 1 walk in a hitless 9th. Thursday's matchup was Tyler Anderson (0-0, 27.00) for the Roxs against Joey Lucchesi (0-0, 5.79) with a game time scheduled for 3:40.

Thursday: Rockies 3 @ Padres 1.

Game was scoreless going into the 9th inning. Brad Hand came in to start the 9th allowed 2 walks to begin the inning, an error loaded the bases, and after Hand got Carlos Gonzalez to strike out, he allowed another walk to Ryan McMahon to drive in the first run of the game, and after Blackmon struck out LeMahieu singled in the Roxs final 2 runs. Manuel Margot would lead off the bottom half with a homer off of Roxs new closer Wade Davis, but he’d retire the next 3 batters as the Roxs win 3 of 4 in the series. Anderson pitched 6 scoreless innings allowing 0 walks, 4 hits with 4 strikeouts, Adam Ottavino (1-0) allowed 1 hit in 2 scoreless innings with 0 walks and 2 strikeouts and Davis (4th save) allowed 1 run on 1 hit (1 homer) with 0 walks and 2 strike outs. Lucchesi allowed 1 hit, 3 walks and 7 strikeouts in 5 scoreless innings while Hand (0-2) allowed 3 runs on 1 hit with 2 strikeouts and 3 walks. Rockies went home for the home opener against the Braves starting on Friday where they lost the first game 8-3. Padres take the first road trip of the year and first interleague series of the year as they take on the reining World Series Champs the Houston Astros in Houston. Lance McCullers Jr (1-0, 3.38) started for Houston against Luis Perdomo (0-1, 11.25). Game time was 8:10.

Friday: Padres 4 @ Astros 1.

Jose Pirela had a 1 out single, Hosmer walked, and each moved up on an error by Astros starter McCullers, and Pirela scored on a passed ball. George Springer lead off the Astros 3rd with a single, moved to 3rd on a 1 out single by Jose Altuve, and Springer scored on a Carlos Correa sac fly.

Saturday: Padres 0 @ Astros 1 (10 innings):

Corey Spangenberg lead off double to begin 5th and a Christian Villanueva lead off double to begin the 9th were the only 2 base runners that got into scoring position with less than 2 outs, but Spangenberg got erased on a fielders choice out at home after AJ Ellis sacrificed him over to 3rd and the Pads 5th stalled out from there, and Villanueva would get erased on a fielder’s choice out at 3rd and the 9th would stall out there as well, so let’s get to the Astros 10th where the action started. Brian McCann would start the inning with a single off of Robbie Erlin, and McCann would get subbed out for speedster Derek Fisher who would get caught stealing with Jake Marisnick batting, but the call would get overturned on replay. Erlin would get Marisnick to line out, George Springer to strike out, and with Alex Bregman due up, Andy Green called on Phil Maton to retire Bregman and go to the 11th. And that’s what Maton looked like he did, as he got Bregman to lift a pop up to the first base side of the pitcher’s mound. Even though there were 3 people standing around it (Maton [the pitcher], Ellis [the catcher] and Eric Hosmer [the 1b]) with Villanueva [the 3b] and Carlos Asuaje [the 2b] who had long runs but who also could have easily made the catch as well, no one took control of it, so Hosmer had to run in from his first base position and overran the ball. Ball drops about 5 feet behind him right as soon as Fisher is crossing the plate. Ball game, and really an all-time classic Padres way to lose the game. Even the Bad-News-Bears would be impressed with that defeat. Bryan Mitchell pitched 5.2 scoreless innings allowing 3 hits, but allowed 6 walks with only 1 strikeout. Erlin (0-1) was the hard luck loser as he allowed 1 run on 1 hit with 3 strikeouts in 1.2. Gerritt Cole pitched 7 scoreless innings allowing 5 hits, 0 walks with 11 strikeouts and Chris Devenski (1-0) pitched a hitless 1.1 with 2 strikeouts to get the win.

Sunday: Pads 1 @ Astros 4.

Manuel Margot would lead off the Pads 5th with a single, stolen base, and would advance to 3rd on an Asuaje ground out. However, he would run himself and the team out of the inning when he got thrown out at home on Hosmer’s grounder to SS. Josh Reddick and Marwin Gonzalez would start the Astros 5th with singles against Tyson Ross, Ross retired Evan Gattis, but then gave up a 3 run homer to backup catcher Max Stassi. A walk, error, and hit batter with 1 out in the 6th would get the bases loaded for the Pads who would get their lone RBI on an Austin Hedges force out, and with the tying run at the plate Margot would also hit into a force out to end that threat, and the threat in the game as only 1 other Padre would reach base the final 3 innings (a walk to Asuaje in the 7th) which was promptly erased on a double play anyways. Reddick finished the scoring with a solo home run in the 6th. Charlie Morton (2-0) allowed 1 run (unearned) on 4 hits with 3 walks and 7 strikeouts in 6 innings, Will Harris (1st hold), and Joe Smith (1st hold) pitched 2 hitless innings with a walk and strikeout and Brad Peacock (1st save) had a 1-2-3 9th with a strikeout. Ross (1-1) allowed 4 runs on 6 hits (2 homers) with 0 walks and 7 strikeouts. Astros will take a quick 3 game road trip to Minnesota for a series with the Twins that begins Monday night. Padres are also hitting the road as they will make their first trip to the wonderful city of Denver, Colorado for 3 games at Mile High against the Rockies who are coming off losing 2 of 3 against the Braves in their first home series of the year. Jon Gray (1-1, 2.45) starts for Colorado against the Pads Clayton Richard (0-1, 4.50). Game time slated for 8:40.

Padres 7 @ Rockies 6.

Manuel Margot would have a 2 out single to plate the Pads first run in the first and then Ian Desmond would follow up with a solo home run to tie it in the bottom half. After Jon Gray retired the first 2 Padres in the 4th Freddy Galvis tripled, Austin Hedges had an RBI double to give the Pads a 2-1 lead, and then after an intentional walk to Margot the pitcher would get into the action as Clayton Richard homered into the second deck in right field and then 2 pitches later Carlos Asuaje would homer to RF. Trevor Story would have a 1 out double, Desmond walked, and Chris Iannetta would bring them both home with a 3 run homer that just cleared the center field fence to cut the lead to 6-4. Jose Pirela would restore the Padres 3 run lead at 7-4 with an RBI double in the 5th, and then Carlos Gonzalez would have an opposite field home run that just cleared the wall in LF that was upheld on replay. Charlie Blackmon would walk, and DJ LeMahieu would single to start the 7th but new pitcher Craig Stammen got Nolan Arenado to strike out, Story to ground into a force out to move runners to the corners, and then ended the inning on a Desmond ground out. Stammen put the Rockies down 1-2-3 in the 8th and then Brad Hand struck out the side in the 9th for his 3rd save. Gray (1-2) allowed 7 runs on 10 hits (2 homers) with 1 walk and 6 strikeouts in 5 innings. Richard (1-1) allowed 4 runs on 5 hits (2 home runs allowed but hit a home run of his own so a net loss of 1 home run) with 3 walks and 3 strikeouts in 5 innings. Jordan Lyles (2nd hold) and Stammen (3rd hold) combined for 3 innings allowing 2 runs on 2 hits (1 homer) with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts and Hand (3rd save) had a 1-2-3 9th with 3 strikeouts. Game 2 of the series takes place Tuesday night. Joey Lucchesi (0-0, 2.790 starts for the Padres against Tyler Anderson (0-0, 7.56), game time scheduled for 8:40.

Padres 5 @ Rockies 2.

It's too bad the Padres forgot the season started a week earlier than they thought because they've been playing some pretty good ball ever since that final game of the home series last week against the Rockies. Sure, they ended up losing that game but it was 0-0 going into the 9th and sure they lost 2 of 3 in Houston, but they only had that 1 really bad inning in the final game, the rest of the series was pretty much played neck and neck with the Padres actually outscoring them if you take that inning out, and so far got the first 2 in Denver. Here's what transpired. By the way another excellent start from the rookie Joey Lucchesi, glad they were finally able to get a win for him after Hand blew his first career game (the Braun walk off homer vs. Milwaukee), and then his second game was the 0-0 9th inning tie against the Rockies last Thursday.

Chris Iannetta reached on a 1 out error, and with the inning extended Trevor Story would have a 2 run homer. Manuel Margot & Jose Pirela would have back-to-back 2 out doubles to get the Pads back to within 1 and then Eric Hosmer would follow with a single to LF, but Rockies LF Ian Desmond threw out Pirela at the plate to preserve the 2-1 lead. Padres tied the game in the 5th on a leadoff homer from Austin Hedges and would take the lead in the 7th. After getting the first 2 batters out in the inning Bryan Shaw would allow singles to Pirela and Hosmer before Hunter Renfroe followed with a 3 run opposite field homer to RF. Nolan Arenado rippled to lead off the 7th and Story walked to bring the tying run to the plate but excellent pitching from Kazuhisa Makita relieving Lucchesi getting Desmond to fly out to shallow right, a Gerardo Parra strike out with Story taking 2nd and then Pat Valaika popped out to end the scoring threat. Lucchesi (1-0) had another outstanding start 2 runs (0 earned) on 4 hits (1 homer) with 1 walk and 8 strikeouts in 6+ innings (he faced 2 batters in the 7th). Makita (1st hold), Robbie Erlin (1st hold), and Adam Cimber (1st hold) combined for 2 hitless innings with 2 strikeouts and Brad Hand (4th save) allowed a leadoff single in the 9th but after getting a double play he ended up retiring the Roxs 1-2-3 for the save. Final game of the series is on Wednesday. Luis Perdomo (1-1, 6.00) faces German Marquez (0-1, 6.52) with the first pitch scheduled for 3:10 in the afternoon mantinee from Coors.

Wednesday: Padres 4 @ Rockies 6.

After Rockies pitchers hit Manuel Margot Tuesday night and Hunter Renfroe in the 2nd inning Wednesday, Luis Perdomo threw behind Nolan Arenado which lead to ejections for Perdomo, Arenada along with Pads catcher A.J. Ellis, Rockies LF Gerardo Parra, and Rockies starter German Marquez. Ian Desmond replacing Arenado in the lineup reached on a Corey Spangenberg error, stole second, and scored on Carlos Gonzalez’s single. 2 walks and a sac bunt would follow to load the bases and Tony Wolters singled driving in 2, Wolters would move to 3rd and all 3 base runners would score on a Frenchy Cordero fielding error, and Wolters would score on a Pat Valaika single to make it 5-0. Cordero would homer to lead off the 6th, and Renfroe would ground into a force out with the bases loaded for the Pads and Jose Pirela would score on a Wolters passed ball to make it 5-3. Desmond would have a sac fly in the bottom half to make it 6-3, and Eric Hosmer would have his first homer as a Padre in the 8th to cut the deficit to 4-6. Perdomo somehow worked around 5 hits in 2 innings with 2 strikeouts to not allow a run while Buddy Baumann (0-1) took the loss allowing 5 runs (2 earned) on 2 hits with 2 walks in 1/3 of an inning. Marquez allowed 0 runs on 1 hit with 4 strikeouts in 3 innings before he was thrown out, Anthony Senzatela (1-1) allowed 3 runs (2 earned) on 4 hits (1 homer) with 1 walk and 4 strikeouts in 3 innings, Adam Ottavino (2nd hold), and Jake McGee (4th hold) allowed 1 run on 1 hit (1 homer) with 0 walks and 3 strikeouts in 2 innings, and Wade Davis (5th save) had a 1-2-3 9th with 2 strikeouts. Rockies travel East for a 4 game series with the Nationals in Washington DC which begins Thursday, while the Padres head home to begin a 4 game home series vs. the NL rival San Francisco Giants which starts on Thursday as well. Giants will hand the ball to Chris Stratton (0-1, 4.35) while Bryan Mitchell (0-1, 4.22) starts for the Padres. Game time scheduled for 10:10

Friday: Giants 7 @ Padres 0.

Joe Panik started the game with a walk, and after a Brandon Belt flyout Andrew McCutchen singled and Buster Posey walked to load the bases. Evan Longoria would add the Giants first RBI on a force out, and Brandon Crawford would walk to load the bases and then Hunter Pence would add 2 more RBI’s on a single. Giants finished the scoring with 4 runs in the 6th; 2 runs would score on a Christian Villanueva error, and the final 2 runs scored on a Posey double. Padres only had 4 base runners the entire night: 1 hit by a pitcher no less! Clayton Richard pinch-hitting for the regular starter Mitchell, not going to win games when you only have 1 hit & 4 base runners, no matter how good the pitching is. Stratton (1-1) allowed 1 hit, with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts in 7 scoreless innings. Mitchell (0-2) allowed 3 runs on 4 hits with 5 walks and 2 strikeouts in 3 innings. Series vs. the Giants continues on Friday. Ty Blach (1-1, 4.11) starts for the Giants and Tyson Ross (1-1, 5.25) starts for the Padres. Game time scheduled for 10:10.

Friday: Giants 1 @ Padres 5.
Joe Panik had the Giants lone RBI on the evening and finished 2-4, Brandon Belt finished 2-3 with a walk, Brandon Crawford lead the Giants with 3 hits, and Gregor Blanco finished 2-4 with a run scored. Francy Cordero finished 1-4 with a run scored, RBI on a home run, Jose Pirela finished 1-4 with an RBI, Carlos Villanueva finished 2-2 with an RBI, run scored and a walk, Freddy Galvis finished 1-4 with an RBI and a run scored, while starting pitcher Tyson Ross finished 1-3 with an RBI and drove in the Pads first run on the night. Ty Blach (1-2) allowed 4 runs (3 earned) on 7 hits with 1 walk and 3 strikeouts in 5 innings. Ross (2-1) allowed 1 unearned run on 7 hits with a walk and 5 strikeouts in 6 innings, Craig Stammen (4th hold) had a hit and 2 strikeouts in 2 scoreless innings, and Brad Hand (5th save) had a hitless 2/3.

Saturday: Giants 4 @ Padres 5.
Hunter Renfroe finished 1-3 with a run scored, 3 RBI's and a walk and had the tie-breaking home run in the 7th, Villanueva was 1-2 with an RBI, run scored and 2 walks with a home run, AJ Ellis was 1-3 with a run scored, and both Pirela & Galvis finished 2-5 with a run scored with Pirela adding an RBI. Evan Longoria finished 2-4 with a run scored and 2 RBI's on a home run, Austin Jackson was 1-5 with an RBI, Andrew McCutchen reached base 3 times in 4 at bats with 2 walks, a run scored, 1 RBI and a home run, Nick Hundley was 1-4 with a run scored, and Brandon Crawford was 1-3 with a run scored.
