That was the case last night when Casey Kelly gave up the 7 runs in the third, and Brad Brach gave up the 3 runs in the 7th. Ultimately though the Padres were done in by lack of defense. Any time this team loses I turn straight to the errors column to see what shows up there. Sure enough 2 errors were committed yesterday which aided in the long innings. When the Padres play solid defense then we can win a game, but once the defense gets shoddy we run into problems. Thus we lost a series to a weaker team because of it.

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
