Padres dig in, beat Dodgers 2-1

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The Friars showed some grit in this one.

In their first of a four games at Dodger Stadium this week, the Padres (10-7) were able to steal a victory from the home team in a 2-1 contest that went scoreless through the final three innings.

El Nino shirts are here!

If now’s not the time to grab this shirt, I don’t what is.

Right on time, the great folks over at BreakingT dropped a new Padres shirt design this week for you to collect. This time, it dons the glowing mug of the phenom himself, Fernando Tatis Jr.

Tatis is currently on a career-long 17-game streak of getting on base while coming off a streak of four games where he cranked five home runs. His play has helped the Padres get back into the division race as they’re just one...

Let’s keep things hot in L.A.

The Padres (9-7) make their first stop tonight in Los Angeles to begin a four-game series against the Dodgers (11-5) before making two more stops elsewhere prior to getting back to Petco Park.

After they’re done in L.A., they’ll head to Arizona (6-10) for the third series of the season between the two before ending finishing up in Texas with a three-game tilt with the Texans (6-8).

The Friars are coming off one of the...

Padres erupt for six home runs, beat D-backs 9-5

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

The Friars made Petco Park history with six home runs on Sunday afternoon.

So, that was something. Raise your hand if you predicted anything close to that game? No, put your hand down. Don’t lie.

In true 2020 fashion, the Padres caught everyone off guard with an offensive explosion in a 9-5 series-clinching victory over the Diamondbacks. This one included six home runs, including two from Manny Machado and another by Fernando Tatis Jr. to increase his...

How long can Fernando Tatis Jr. keep this hot streak alive?

I won’t sugarcoat last night’s performance. Aside from Fernando Tatis Jr., it was pretty forgettable offensively. I’m not entirely sure where Manny Machado has been most of this season, but it’s gotten to the point where you almost forget he’s supposed to be the “best” player on the team, or at least that’s what his contract would point to. His .193 average is currently only better...

Tatis’ pair of home runs not enough in 3-2 loss to D-Backs

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

El Nino’s sixth and seventh team-leading were still cool to see, to be honest.

Fernando Tatis Jr. made history in an unusual way on Saturday evening when he hit a leadoff home run for the second time in as many games. The super weird part? He achieved the same feat, literally a year ago, on the same two dates.

In 2019, Tatis hit back-to-back home runs on August 7 and 8. Yesterday and Friday, he did the same thing...on August 7 and 8 of 2020. I don’t...

MLB world reacts to ridiculous recent play of Fernando Tatis Jr.

San Diego Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. has been on fire during the early stages of his sophomore campaign. The 2019 National League Rookie of the Year runner-up entered Saturday’s game against the Arizona Diamondbacks hitting .291 with five homers, 14 RBI and a 1.063 OPS in 14 games this season.

We’ll take a retweet of last night, if you don’t mind.

We’re running it back at Petco tonight with the Diamondbacks after a blank job by the Padres yesterday evening. Three solo homes by Fernando Tatis Jr, Jake Cronenworth, and Edward Olivares were all that the Friars needed to stay ahead of the D-backs for a 3-0 victory.

Even after the comparatively low offensive output on Friday night, the Padres are still second in the majors with 75 total runs...

That’s the good stuff.

The Padres (8-6) got back on track Friday night behind the bats of young, budding talent to secure a 3-0 win over the Diamondbacks (5-9) at Petco Park.

San Diego comes out of their recent home series with the Dodgers licking their wounds as they struggled to control the game defensively. These next three contests against the D-backs is exactly what the doctor ordered to help get the Friars back on track.

Padres can’t overcome early deficit, fall 7-6 to Dodgers

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Machado finished 1-for-11 in the series.

It was another poor start by the Padres’ offense on Wednesday night that forced the team to scratch and claw their way out of a 7-2 hole early in the sixth inning. San Diego (7-6) got within one in the final stanza but the Dodgers (9-4) held on to secure the 7-6 victory. The Dodgers are now tied with the Rockies for first place in the NL West while the Friars have now lost four of their last...
