Padres complete first 4-game sweep since 2011, top Reds 3-2 in finale

Ray Acevedo-USA TODAY Sports

LFG!

Wil Myers laced a three-RBI triple into deep right field early in the third inning which was aided by a throwing error by Joey Votto, and that wound up being all the Padres needed to take down the Reds 3-2 in the series finale. The sweep of Cincinnati in the four-game home series became the first four-game sweep recorded by the Padres since the 2011 season.

More will be known after the game, although any sort of shoulder problem is of particular concern considering that Tatis is already playing with a slight labrum tear in that same left shoulder.

GET THE BROOMS READY!

What’s a better way to rebound from being swept than by recording your own sweep? The Padres can do that with a victory tonight over the Reds at Petco in front of another home crowd.

Miguel Diaz (2-1, 2.18 ERA) will get the start for San Diego opposite the Reds’ Vladimir Gutierrez (3-1, 2.74 ERA).

Let’s kick this sucker up a notch.

The Padres will look to capitalize on a big-time momentum-shifting win from Thursday night in the team’s “home-opener” and turn it into a much-needed win streak to get this whole season back on track. No more up-and-down offense, it’s time to put it all together and keep it that way.

Padres To Select Daniel Camarena

The Padres are planning to select the contract of left-hander Daniel Camarena, reports Dennis Lin of the Athletic (Twitter link). The 28-year-old will make his MLB debut if he gets into a game. The Padres 40-man roster is full, so they’ll need to make a corresponding move to finalize Camarena’s promotion.

What a way to welcome back a crowd.

In front of the first full crowd of the 2021 season, the Padres were able to put on a show and pull out a narrow 6-4 victory in walk-off fashion over the Reds on Thursday night in what the team hopes is a swift ending to their recent struggles.

Alright. Fresh start. No better time than now.

It’s a new series which means it’s a fresh opportunity to do something great. To turn this whole thing around.

The Reds are 35-31, which looks a little better when you realize the Padres’ recent woes have their record looking not much better. But forget the Reds, we know the Padres are better than them. We know this team is better than what we just saw in an abysmal effort against the Rockies.

Padres get swept, lose 8-7 to Rockies

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Nothing but pain.

What a mess the past three days have been.

Blake Snell, one of the team’s most-notable additions this past offseason, continues to see his play spiral down into irrelevancy after posting just one strikeout against the Rockies on top of allowing seven runs and nine total hits through 3 1?3 innings of work. If it wasn’t for his abysmal performance, the Padres would have probably avoided the sweep as the offense showed some life in their...

Blake Snell (2-3, 4.97 ERA) and Kyle Freeman (0-2, 9.00 ERA) will be on the mound to start for each team.

Darvish, Padres fold against Rockies 8-4

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Seriously, this can stop at any time.

A beaten and battered Padres team needed a break from a tough stretch of schedule to MAYBE get things back on track. Following a couple series against the Cubs and Mets, a meeting with the floundering Rockies and the middling Reds were just what the doctor ordered before they had to face the Dodgers for the third time this year.

That just hasn’t been the case.

After beginning the month with a 4-8 record, the...

Offense? Hello? You there?

Game one sucked. Let’s forget about it entirely. This series and next were supposed to be considered “breaks” before the Dodgers arrive but I guess we’ll all have to sweat this week out, as well.

Yu Darvish (6-2, 2.28 ERA) and Chi Chi Gonzalez (2-4, 5.74 ERA) will be on the mound for tonight’s game.

Pain.

The Padres offense sputtered for another night as the Rockies topped the Friars 3-2 on Monday night at Coors Field. Trent Grisham hit a two-run homer in his second game back to bring them within one in the top of the ninth but that was all she wrote on an underwhelming night for San Diego’s bats.

Easy stretch now, Friars.

The Padres finally put an end to their four-game losing streak by winning yesterday’s series finale against the Mets by a score fo 7-3. Fernando Tatis Jr. hit his third-career grand slam to create an insurmountable lead for the Friars and he was joined in going yard by both Manny Machado and Tommy Pham.

Padres rebound in series finale with 7-3 victory over Mets

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

Gotta win one to begin a win streak.

The Padres offense looked a lot like the unit we’ve come to expect on Sunday afternoon as they went yard on three separate occasions, including the third-career grand slam for Fernando Tatis Jr. Chris Paddack also struck out a season-high nine batters en route to topping the Mets 7-3 in the series finale at Citi Field.
