The Friar Stomp

Oh where has our offense gone. The Padres have gone on and done the most unthinkable thing of all. They have taken the first two in this series. They have out-pitched us, out-played us and they now find themselves just 2 games behind us.

I don't know if I can complain too much about the last two games. Our pitching did just fine. Unfortunately, San Diego's pitching did better. Our offense couldn't muster many rallies against the Padres, but the Friars didn't do that much better. Our relief did very well, but San Diegos' relief corps did not given up a run in the last two games. I think we just ran into a team who put their head down and played ball. Good for them.

If I may add, I agree with Jon at Dodger Thoughts.
The Dodgers are a package that reaches base at an above-average rate, sometimes gets good pitching, but struggles with the home run and occasionally gets hammered. This is a package that is going to win some and lose some. With six miles to go in the race, I don't know how one could know how it will turn out. All I know is that the performance against one team doesn't matter all that much.
