So I was wrong about the Padres “winning formula” I mentioned yesterday. They were supposed to win last night, but failed to do so. Of course it doesn’t help when you are facing a power hitting team in a hitter friendly ball park. Ironically enough though, it wasn’t Ryan Braun doing all the damage this time. Put him in Petco and he destroys the place, but we kept him pretty quiet last night. That said Corey Hart was tearing the cover off the ball. The Brewers have been like this over the years though, always having one guy step it up even when someone isn’t getting the job done. This is something that the Padres are seriously lacking right now. Here are your Padres links for today:
