Game 17 Preview: 04/23 Padres @ Rockies

The Padres wrap up their four-game set at Coors Field this afternoon and hope to come out with their fourth straight series win as they go into a tough homestand this weekend. After a bummer of a loss last night, the Friars look to Tyson Ross to close out the series on a strong note. So far Ross is 1-0 with a 4.08 ERA in three starts this season. The right-hander, who turned 28 yesterday, is making his eighth career start against Colorado and sixth at Coors Field. Unfortunately the Rockies have not been kind to him in the past. He's 0-4 against them all-time, with all four of his losses...

Cubs 7, Padres 6: Extra innings go badly

The Padres pulled off an amazing four-run comeback in the ninth inning, but faltered in extra innings. It's round two in Wrigley Field. The Padres started out on top after yesterday's early day game, with Will Middlebrooks and Wil Nieves going yard for a collective 5 runs. James Shields had a tough start, but came around to punch out enough Cubs to collect 9 strikeouts. Today, Tyson Ross took the mound against the Cubbies' Kyle Hendricks. In Ross' last start against San Francisco he wrung up 8 strikeouts. Against the Cubs, Tyson was on point. Hitting his spots all game, Ross was peppering...

Game 2 Preview: 04/07 Padres @ Dodgers

Yesterday we had a baseball game. And today we have a baseball game, too! Opening Day didn't go quite as planned, but it was still so wonderful watching our team play a game that matters yesterday, and it's wonderful to be able to do so again today. In game 1, the Padres went toe-to-toe with the reigning MVP and Cy Young Award Winner Clayton Kershaw, and they came up with three runs (all driven in by former Dodger Matt Kemp) to back their starter James Shields. Today they'll look to Tyson Ross to help lead them to victory as they face Zack Greinke... weather permitting. Ross had a...

SD 6, CIN 3: More scoreless outings, More home runs

At this point it's routine. Ian Kennedy put in his six scoreless innings, and there was plenty of hitting and scoring in the form of home runs. The number four starter spot at this point is locked in for Ian Kennedy. This spring training he hasn't been putting up big headlining numbers, but instead has been using this time to specifically develop his pitches. Today his offspeed-heavy performance allowed him to go the six-inning distance that James Shields, Tyson Ross, and Andrew Cashner have all pulled off. Kennedy's day saw seven strikeouts and only six damage-less hits, and the guy is...

SD 8, SEA 5: A Mullet a Matt and a Myers handle the M's

Cashner had a good outing, even comparison to Ross' 12-K start yesterday. Myers, Gyorko and Kemp all popped off on some Seattle batting practice. To kick off the last week of spring training, the Padres set Cashner on the mound. With James Shields already announced as the opening day starter, this puts Tyson Ross and Cash at projected 2 and 3 spots, respectively. To both work on and strut his stuff today, Cashner only allowed a lone run and four hits over six and a half innings. He also struck out six poor souls. On the offensive side of things, the swingin' Friars collected 14 hits for 8...

Spring Training Game Thread: 03/28 Padres @ Rangers

Last night the Padres offense clicked to get a come-from-behind win against the Rockies despite a shaky outing from starter James Shields. This afternoon they'll send Tyson Ross to the mound to hopefully have more success against today's opponent. The team travels to Surprise to take on the Rangers in a 1:05 pm PT game. Ross will be making his fifth Spring start and is expected to throw around 80 pitches, according to Corey Brock. For some context going into today's matchup, Ross has thrown 12 2/3 innings with a 2.84 ERA this Spring, allowing a total of six runs (four earned) on eight...
