pre: Padres.com, B-R.com

It is March and black dust falls out of the books
Soon I will be gone
– W.S. Merwin

Actually, it is August and if the Padres can get any production out of the back end of their rotation, soon they will be headed to the playoffs. Justin Germano gets the call Tuesday night, and he’s scuffling a bit: 0-4, 5.54 ERA over his past seven starts. Germano also has an ERA two full runs higher at home than on the road, which is weird because the batting lines against him are nearly identical.

Brandon Webb, meanwhile, surrendered two runs his last time out against the Brewers. Those were the first runs he’d given up in over a month.

Here’s hoping for a miracle. Go Padres!

  1. Nice win; horrendous looking call on KK’s sacrifice, but I’ll take it. Kinda offsets the home plate calls.

    I like Maddux vs. Owings, but tonight’s match up could not have favored AZ more. OK, if we put Stauffer out there, yes.

    Owings has some some odd splits: pitches better at Chase than the road; let’s hope his road woes (6.06 ERA) continue.

  2. Guys,

    Never been to baseball game before so went along today. It’s a great game. Why do people boo Kouzmanoff? What did he do to warrant that? Can’t find anything online.

  3. 152: They aren’t boing him. They are yelling KOOOOOZ

  4. *booing* is that a word?!?

  5. Ah, that makes a bit more sense!


  6. 152: The fans are saying KOOOOOOOOZ not BOOOOOOO
