In game 2 my favorite current Padre came up with the loss, although this time the Padre hitters did a little better than Monday. Gyorko and Hundley both had hits and Evereth Cabrera had two hits, put got picked off at first attempting to steal. If the bats continue to increase their productivity, things may turn around. I would like to see the team salvage one on Wednesday.
I had big dreams the way the team finished the season last year. I had not envisioned the Padres starting out with two losses to the Mets, who many people had thought would be terrible. As one friend of mine constantly reminds me, wait at least until one third of the season is over before starting to panic.
I had high hopes for this year, but this is not the way I saw things beginning. Edinson Volquez only went three innings and gave up something like six runs in three innings and the Padres only had 4 hits in the whole game. Hopefully things will get better for the team and they will come together as a team. I am not yet ready to give up on the team yet.
