Padres notes: Hosmer's frustration; Lauer's letdown; Galvis' status

It was neither a regular strikeout nor regular frustration, even as plentiful as both have been lately. No, what riled Eric Hosmer enough that he stayed on the field to talk to home plate umpire Ryan Blakney after a called third strike that ended Sunday’s 7-4 loss was that the Padres first baseman...

Eric Hosmer homers but Cubs strike back

Eric Hosmer finally got under one Saturday night. Yet Luis Perdomo and the Padres, again, could not get out of their own way. The Padres’ slumping first baseman hit his first homer in over a month, a high, loud shot that ultimately went for naught in an 11-6 loss to the Cubs that extended San Diego’s...

San Diego Padres 4, Arizona Diamondbacks 3

What. Just. Happened. Zack Greinke wasn’t at his best this afternoon, but he did just enough to keep the Arizona Diamondbacks within striking distance of the San Diego Padres. San Diego got to him early on an RBI double from Eric Hosmer. Greinke was unable to go past the 5th inning due to an elevated pitch count. He allowed 6 hits, 3 walks, 2 earned runs, and 5 strikeouts. A.J. Pollock was having a great day at the plate with two loud singles in his first two plate appearances. The second base hit drove in a pair of runs to put Arizona in the lead, but it would come to an end there. In...

Padres' Eric Hosmer working to catch next wave

Sometimes his dad will get a text. Something like this: It’s close. And then, a day or two later: It’s clicking. For all his success over eight major league seasons — a career .282/.342/.437 hitting line — Eric Hosmer has a propensity to get into funks at the plate. And he’s so in tune with his...

Padres come back in rare style to beat Rangers

It felt like this type of inning should have happened sooner. There just hadn’t been many chances. There had, in fact, not been a single game in which the events that transpired Tuesday night at Globe Life Park could have occurred. Wil Myers came to bat with Eric Hosmer on base. It felt big. It...

Padres waste good night against Cole Hamels, lose to Rangers

The Padres might have been on their way to stealing a game on Monday night. Then they gave it away. Playing without Eric Hosmer against a starting pitcher who had sailed through the past two months, the Padres jumped to a lead and then watched it flit away in a sixth inning that featured five singles,...

Padres notes: Scuffling Hosmer sits; good news on Lyles

Andy Green told Eric Hosmer after Sunday’s game in San Francisco that he wouldn’t be playing on Monday. “Just felt like as hard as he’s grinding lately, a day off was a good thing for him,” Green said before the Padres played the Rangers here. “Some things lined up that made sense.” Hosmer is 0-for-13...

Robert Stock has come a long way to debut with Padres

Two hours before Sunday’s first pitch, at the bottom of the stairs leading from the visitors’ clubhouse at A&T Park, Robert Stock came to a corner just as Eric Hosmer was coming out of the batting cage. “This way to the field?” Stock asked. He would a few moments later emerge into the sunshine...

Padres notes: Hosmer shows his worth; Ross-Richard vs. everyone else

There is hardly a statistical category or metric that would explain it at this point. But Mark McGwire knows why Eric Hosmer is here. “People saying the Padres brought in Hosmer and gave him all this money and wondering why,” the Padres bench coach said last weekend, smiling and shaking his head....

Richard sets down 18 of 21 in Padres' 6-2 win over Giants

SAN FRANCISCO — Eric Hosmer's first single barely stayed fair and never made it past third base. His second was a little crisper and gave the Padres a little cushion in the ninth inning.It also assured Clayton Richard's career-best winning streak stayed intact.Hosmer reached base three times, Richard pitched three-hit ball over six innings for his fourth consecutive win and San Diego beat the San Francisco Giants 6-2 on Friday night.The Padres were clinging to a 3-2 lead in the ninth before scoring three times. Hosmer's two-run single to left off Will Smith was the pivotal blow and came...

Padres eager to finally pair Myers, Hosmer together

For only the ninth time this year, Andy Green penciled both Wil Myers and Eric Hosmer into the same lineup upon arriving Thursday at AT&T Park. They weren’t sitting in the middle of that lineup as the Padres’ third-year skipper envisioned this spring – the search for a passable leadoff hitter had...
