Padres 11, Dodgers 3: Justin Upton has a big day

After last night's frustrating loss, the Padres needed more than a win today. They needed the kind of resounding, dominating victory that reminds a team of who they are and what they can do. And thanks to James Shields and Justin Upton, that's exactly what they got. Dodgers starting pitcher Carlos Frias had nothing working for him from the very beginning of the game.

Fans were promised a better team, and yet there’s this: Year W L RS RA 2013 21 23 180 190 2014 21 23 133 154 2015 20 24 182 203 On the other hand, because of that promise, there’s also this: G 2014 Att/G 2015 Att/G Diff 23 26,674 31,758 +5,084 (Data courtesy of Baseball-Reference.)
