Game 78, Mariners at Padres

Taijuan Walker vs. James Shields, 12:40pm Early game today, which means many of us won’t actually get to see what’s looking like a very interesting pitching match-up. The resurgent Taijuan Walker’s rattled off six consecutive quality starts, and while yes, quality start streaks make me think of Blake Beavan’s first year, Walker’s looked amazing.

James Shields loses his first game of the season

Shields had no command of his pitches and the Padres offense left the bases loaded twice. I don't know about you guys but I power down whenever the Padres play the Diamondbacks.  They are my kryptonite and they suck all my energy from me.  I don't passionately hate them like other teams and but there is absolutely nothing I like about them.  I hate watching games on TV in their ballpark too because it echos like a dome or a racquetball court. Anyway, the DBacks handed James Shields his first loss of the season.  If he doesn't like it then he'll have to play better I suppose.  That's...

Game 70 Preview: 06/19 Padres @ Diamondbacks

Last week, the Padres dropped to fourth place in the division. Tonight, they begin a three-game set against the new third-place team in the NL West. James Shields will take the mound for the opener at Chase Field. It'll be his fourth career start against the Diamondbacks, and third in Arizona. Shields went 2-1 with a 6.50 ERA in his first three appearances against the Dbacks. The worst of those outings took place earlier this year. He was tagged for five earned runs, including giving up a season-high four home runs, in six innings of work. But otherwise, Shields has been mostly worthy of...

Dodgers 4, Padres 2: Bullpen blows it again

For the second time this series, the bullpen blew a late game lead. James Shields was brilliant today. He held the Dodgers to one run on five hits in seven innings of work, and left the game looking to claim his eighth win. But the bullpen didn't hold up their end of the bargain, with Joaquin Benoit taking his third blown save and Dale Thayer getting pegged with his second loss. The Padres offense wasn't at their best today, but they managed to do a little damage against Mike Bolsinger in the fifth. With two outs, Shields got the rally started by slipping a grounder into right field for a...

Game 65 Preview: 06/14 Padres vs. Dodgers

The Padres evened up the series against the Dodgers last night, and today they'll give the ball to their ace, James Shields, to try to lock up the series win.  Meanwhile, Mike Bolsinger hopes to improve on an already impressive sophomore campaign with Los Angeles and extend the Dodgers' lead over the Padres in the NL West. Shields remains undefeated on the season after a no-decision in his most recent outing.  He wasn't his sharpest against the Braves his last time out, giving up five runs (four earned) through 5 1/3 innings at Turner Field.  He's 1-0 in two starts already against the...

Game 63 Thread: June 14 @ Padres, 1p

Mike Bolsinger (4-1, 2.08) vs. James Shields (7-0, 3.79). My god, it's this guy, again? According to the mlb.com preview, Shields is 1-1 against us, which makes no sense against a 7-0 record. Turns out Shields didn't factor into the decision in our Opening Day comeback win; he did beat us May 24 however in a 11-3 loss. So it's a double rubber match of sorts; let's hope we see some broken Shields today.

SD 1, ATL 4: Offense struggles behind Tyson Ross

Today's game had a messy combination between a lackluster lineup and a decent start from Tyson Ross. Yesterday's 6-5 loss to the Braves could be attributed to a few things. A fluke inning where James Shields blows a 5-0 lead in one inning, a non-call on a dirty slide against Derek Norris, and a bunch of blown opportunities with RISP for the Padres. Today, it was a bit plain and simple. Padre runs weren't happening, and Tyson Ross couldn't keep things close enough. Ross lasted 6 innings today, giving up 9 hits and 3 earned runs. He managed to strike out five, while also giving up a pair of...

Game 60 Preview: 06/09 Padres @ Braves

The Padres look to stay above .500 behind their ace in game 2. James Shields continues his quest to stay undefeated this afternoon when he takes the mound at Turner Field. The Padres already locked up their first win of the series, and hopefully will clinch a series split or better tonight in game 2 against the Braves. Shields has been the undoubted ace of the staff since his Padres debut on Opening Day, and he remains the most consistent and reliable starter in the rotation. Ten of his twelve starts have been quality starts, and he holds a 7-0 record while posting a 3.58 ERA this season....
