The Padres have struggled all season with their bats UNTIL lately! Now that the bats have arrived from its deep slumber and the confidence in the batter’s box is high, we need to get on a good winning streak. The longest winning streak that we have had all year long is TWO games.
We are opening a series tonight against the AZ D-Backs and it will be a cellar battle. The Padres are a 1/2 game behind the D-Bags and sweeping these 2 games will move us out of the cellar in the NL West. We have to focus on one team at a time and just start making a move on the division.
This is a long season and we are within striking distance, if the offense can keep putting up numbers we will be in good shape. That is going to be a huge IF, but it all lies on their shoulders. The bullpen is still STACKED and the starting pitching will keep the games close. Mat Latos finally got his first win of the season yesterday and pitched well, hopefully that boosts his confidence for the next start and the coming starts.
The team is starting to gel and some good things are happening. Let’s ride it out and keep rolling! Win number 3 coming tonight!
