Gaslamp Ball Aug 17, 2016
The fourth straight loss was a slaughter. There was nothing pretty about today's loss against the Rays. The San Diego Padres were playing miserably at every stop. Notably, the Friars only used 2 pitchers during the bloodshed. This presumably saved a few arms on the chance that the Pads don't play so swell a fifth time. The disastourly duo today was Edwin Jackson and Carlos Villanueva. Jackson had the start, and lasted a whole 4 innings before getting yanked. He gave up 9 hits, 8 runs (1 home run), walked 3, and struck out 3. Most of the earned runs he allowed were off RBI-doubles in the 2nd...

You can come by any time. Ah, Edwin Jackson. We’ve missed you. And I think we can all agree (unlike in our discussions of Wil Myers) that we both like you and are happy you’re a former Ray. The bottom of the second inning was a very Edwin Jackson inning. Matt Duffy led off a line drive up the middle for a single, and then EJ lost his strike zone, missing down and away to Logan Morrison on four straight pitches. He threw three more balls to Steven Souza Jr., before getting a break when ball four hit Souza’s checked swing. Still, the real ball four came two pitches later, loading the...

That game was shaping up to be very bad, yet it turned out to be very good. The Yankees rallied from behind for a 9-4 win over the Red Sox on Wednesday night thanks in large part to their bullpen, which was far more effective than Boston’s. That was a satisfying win. I’m not going […] The post Sanchez and the bullpen help the Yankees rally for a 9-4 win over the Red Sox appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

After dropping the series opener in Pittsburgh, the Padres hope to even things up tonight in game 2 against the Pirates. Edwin Jackson will get the ball for San Diego opposite Ryan Vogelsong. Jackson, who will make his fifth appearance since joining the Padres (and fifth start overall this season), is coming off a fantastic start last Wednesday against the Brewers. He threw seven shutout innings before allowing three runs in the 8th. All in all he gave up eight hits and issued no walks while striking out five batters. The eight innings constituted his longest outing this season, but he’s...

Andy Green is stretching out the pitching staff. During last month’s trade talks, Padres skipper Andy Green mentioned that a six-man rotation might be needed after trading away players from the existing rotation. Now that the team is facing a 16-game stretch with no days off combined with a staff comprised of mostly young arms, it appears that we will see at least a couple of turns of a six-man rotation. Who will be in this rotation? Why will it help? Every member of the Padres’ opening day rotation has either been traded or has gotten hurt. AJ Preller, manager Andy Green, and...

Jackson and Blash both went deep in their own ways. What do you like about baseball? Good pitching? Edwin Jackson had you covered today, taking a shutout into the eighth inning. Offense? How’s eleven runs sound, with hits from every spot in the order? You like homers? Jabari Blash launched his first today, and Yangervis Solarte hammered his eleventh. The running game? Travis Jankowski swiped a pair, Wil Myers took one, and even Jackson got in on it with his first swipe in fourteen years of baseball. Defense? Myers and Jankowski both flashed some leather. Yeah, this game had just about...

The Padres are fresh off an off day and back home after a ten-game road trip. Tonight they open up a three-game set against the visiting Reds that will bring them to the end of July, and they'll be looking to make more history in the process. Veteran righty Edwin Jackson will get the ball for San Diego in tonight's series opener, making his third start since joining the Padres. He was solid while earning win and a loss in his first two starts, allowing five runs (four earned) on seven hits over 12 1/3 innings of work. Jackson has faced the Reds ten times (nine times as a starter) in his...
