Padres Game Thread 4/10/21: Rangers @ Padres

Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

I’d hate to follow up last night’s game.

The Friar Faithful were witnesses to history last night when Joe Musgrove — the hometown kid — recorded the first no-hitter in Padres history. Real, bonafide history.

Zero hits. Zero balls. 10 strikeouts.

The team likely hasn’t even come down from their highs of Friday night yet and they have to take the field once again this afternoon. Well, here’s to hoping last night wasn’t the peak of the season.

Padres' target date for Fernando Tatis Jr.'s return: April 16

That would be the first day Tatis would be eligible to leave the injured list, and it would put him on pace to be in the lineup as the Padres began a big series with the Dodgers.

Joe Musgrove throws first no-hitter in Padres history

Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

HISTORY!

You couldn’t pay someone to write a better script than that.

On Friday night, Joe Musgrove, a San Diego-native, in his second career game for his hometown club, pitched the first no-hitter in Padres history. In fact, he was THIS close to pitching a perfect game had it not been for an errant pitch that hit the Rangers’ Joey Gallo in the bottom of the fourth.

Padres activate Gold Glove winner Trent Grisham off injured list

Trent Grisham's return should be all the more welcome for a position player group without shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. and catcher Austin Nola, who are on the IL.

Padres Activate Trent Grisham

The Padres announced that they have reinstated center fielder Trent Grisham from the 10-day injured list. The team optioned outfielder Brian O’Grady to its alternate site in a corresponding move.

Padres lose 3-2 to Giants in extra innings

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Bummer.

Blake Snell went out and fanned eight batters for the second-straight start, but allowed a two-run homer in the second which wound up being the difference in the Padres’ 3-2 loss to the Giants on Wednesday afternoon.

Padres Game Thread 4/7/21: Giants @ Padres

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Time to win us a series.

In his first start for the Padres, Blake Snell retired eight batters in just under five innings in a San Diego victory. Tonight, he’ll look to continue the strong start to his time in pinstripes.

He’s scheduled to face right-hander Kevin Gausman. In his lone start this season, the 30-year old struck out six in 6 1?3 innings.

And for those who haven’t seen the good news, Fernando Tatis Jr. is not expected to have surgery for his...

Darvish retires seven as Padres beat Giants 3-1

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Victor Caratini has been a refreshing addition, no?

After a rough debut for the former Cubs ace, Yu Darvish took it to the Giants on Tuesday night, striking out seven and allowing three hits with a solo home run to help the Fernando Tatis-less Padres tie up the series with San Francisco with a 3-1 victory.

Padres Game Thread 4/6/21: Giants @ Padres

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

To be honest, I think there’s an equal chance that neither the players, nor the fan base, really cares about the game tonight after the horrific scene from 24 hours ago involving Fernando Tatis Jr. There might have been some info given within the club, but us fans are still stuck waiting in the cold for some semblance of news. Not even good news, we just want any “news.”

But regardless of what we hear or don’t hear from the team tonight, the Padres...

Tatis leaves with injury, Padres fall 3-2 to Giants

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

Prayers up for Tatis.

The Padres fan base didn’t exhale for over 24 hours when Fernando Tatis Jr. left early in a spring exhibition late last month. He ended up being fine in the end, but the next time Friar Nation got that type of scare it would always be too soon.

So of course it only took a few weeks for things to come crashing down once again.

In the bottom of the third, Tatis took a hard chop on a knuckle-curve that ultimately struck him out. But as he...

Let's start another series with a fat W.

We’re on the the Giants after the Padres took care of the Diamondbacks 3-1 in their first four-game series of the 2021 season. San Diego’s newest pitchers all showed out and helped the team start the year with a trio of wins in spite of slow starts by both Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado.

Eris Hosmer is currently leading the team with seven total hits and a pair of home runs while Jake Cronenworth and Wil Myers...
