No one has ever been happier to hit a major-league home run than Padres rookie Rocky Gale

In the second inning of the Padres’ game against the Diamondbacks on Wednesday, San Diego catcher Rocky Gale deposited a 3-2 slider from Arizona’s Robbie Ray into a terrace of the Western Metal Supply Co. in left field for his first Major-League home run. As Gale rounded the bases, he was very, very excited. Just look at that smile! Forget acting like you’ve been there before, this guy was jubilant and not afraid to show it. Gale likely viewed Wednesday’s home run as a culmination of...

Padres 7, Diamondbacks 13: Battle of the bombs in Petco Park

Who didn’t hit a home run last night?

If you or someone you brought to the game last night are a fan of home runs, you were in for a treat. After a vicious back and forth between the Padres and Dbacks, a total of 8 dongers were donged. It didn’t end up being that great for the Friars, but the 13-7 loss sure wasn’t a boring one.

Long story short, Dinelson Lamet was lit up last night. In five-and-some innings he gave up 3 home runs and allowed 6 earned runs. Two of the home runs came...

Three-HR game puts Renfroe in record book

Since his return from the Minor Leagues on Monday, Hunter Renfroe has eliminated almost all doubt regarding whether he will end the season with the most home runs by a San Diego rookie. After hitting a three-run blast in his first at-bat back in the big leagues, Renfroe slugged three more home runs in Wednesday's 13-7 loss to Arizona, becoming the first Padres rookie with a three-homer game.

Padres pile up homers but fall to D-backs

Home runs are up across the Majors this season. But even by the lofty standards set in 2017, Wednesday was a banner night for the long ball at Petco Park, as the D-backs inched closer to a postseason spot with a 13-7 victory over the Padres.

Padres Extend Clayton Richard

The Padres have announced an extension with lefty Clayton Richard, keeping him off of the open market. It’s a two-year deal with an as-yet-unreported guarantee. Richard, 34, has operated as a full-time starter this year for the first time since 2012. While he carries only a 4.82 ERA, some underlying metrics suggest he has deserved better. Richard has recorded 6.6 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 to go with a stellar 59.1% groundball rate. He has likely been at least a bit unfortunate to surrender a .348...
