The Padres had a combined no-hitter going for 8 2/3 innings. Aaron Harang threw 6 of those. Josh Spence, Chad Qualls and Mike Adams continued the pitching dominance. Luke Gregerson and his mustache gave up two hits in the 9th that put an end to the game and the bid for the first no-hitter in Padres history.
The Padres hitters looked absolutely terrible, they only had one hit (Cameron Maybin in the 5th) and were shut out again for the second day in a row.
It was a really strange game, the dichotomy of watching no hit baseball by the pitchers in one half of the inning and the Padres hitters sh_tting themselves in the other. You didn't know if you should be proud or disgusted. It was like an open faced sandwich with really delicious fresh baked bread but it's covered in dog poo.
I think it's time the Padres start looking towards the future and bring up Anthony Rizzo.
Maybe we'll score tomorrow. Let's hope. Go Padres.
