Padres Dodge Bullet As They Narrowly Avoid National Sweep.
The Padres failed to win yet another series, dropping their first two games of the series before in the winning the finale to the visiting Nationals. The Friars will hit the road again, heading up north to San Francisco to face the Giants, who lost their first two to Cincinnati before winning their last as well on Thursday. A change of scenery will be nice for the Padres but they will surely not be greeted with open arms from the boisterous Giants fans. Below is a recap of their frustrating series against the Washington Nationals.
