Our Padres couldn't keep up with the offensive output they produced in the series opener as they dropped game 2 against the Mets yesterday. After Thursday's game, Bud Black commented, "The trick is to keep going." Unfortunately, our Padres couldn't do that.
The boys will try again this morning as they face the Mets in the third game of a four-game series. Johan Santana will toe the rubber for New York. He hasn't pitched exceptionally well this season, but he has been pretty solid and has done a good job of keeping his team in the game in each of his starts.
Clayton Richard has also been fairly solid for our team. He is coming off a couple of really strong outings and hopes to continue that trend today in New York. He gave up just two runs in seven innings in his start against the Dodgers at home. Then he followed that up two runs against the Cardinals on May 21st.
Sit down, enjoy a nice Saturday breakfast, and watch out Padres beat some Mets butt.
GO FRIARS!! KEEP THE FAITH!!
