- 5-3 Indians
Two words: Victor Martinez. The Indians’ catcher hit a two-run bomb off of Cha Seung Baek as well as a solo homer off of Mat Latos.
On the Padres side, the pitchers did not do as well yesterday. Baek gave up two runs on two hits. Jae Kuk Ryu gave up a run. Highly-touted prospect Mat Latos got hit hard with two home runs. All the rest of the guys were OK.
On the offensive side, things were OK. I think overall, it was an OK game. My boy Kouz had another bomb. Will Venable drove in a run, as did Luis Durango. But we did leave the bases loaded at one point, which should have driven in a few runs, but no. We really could have scored a lot more runs, but we weren’t hitting that great. Edgar Gonzalez had a great day, though, with three hits. Chase Headley threw out another runner at the plate!
I really hope we have good San Diego crowds at the games this weekend. I’m tired of hearing the cheering for the other team. We need to get some Padres fans out there, and I’m sure there will be. Hopefully there we be a bunch of Padres fans out there today as we play the Royals in like five minutes. I slept in REALLY late this morning, so I just ate breakfast and it’s lunchtime. Here’s the lineup:
- CF Jody Gerut
- SS Chris Burke
- RF Brian Giles
- 1B Adrian Gonzalez
- DH Cliff Floyd
- LF Emil Brown
- 2B Edgar Gonzalez
- C Henry Blanco
- 3B Travis Denker
Starting is RHP Kevin Correia, along with Heath Bell, Cla Meredith, Mark Worrell, Chris Britton, Scott Patterson, Oneli Perez, and Mike Ekstrom.
