Rain Not Enough To Prevent Padres Loss 2-5

This is too deep, man. - Mitchell Leff

A gloomy day in Philly equated to another gloomy result in the series opening loss.

A solid 3 innings is never enough in Major League Baseball, and it wasn't enough today to handle the Phillies. Three innings of no-run baseball thrown from Ian Kennedy and a run scored on a Will Venable solo HR was swiftly replaced by a 4 inning Philly 4th.

Our only response was late in the seventh on a weak sacrifice fly from Yonder Alonso. The game ended in a crushing Padres fashion, a weak ground out while down 2-5 with a bases loaded two out situation. Kennedy gave up all 5 earned runs today, and his offense backed him up with 2 on five hits.

At this point we have equaled the Diamondbacks in the standings. A status that we've avoided for the better part of the first half of the season; but now can't seem to escape from. We've gotten decidedly to the point where there's "nowhere to go but up", and the only direction I will settle for is at least being able to sweep a team before all-star break.

There was consolation today, as Everth Cabrera broke some sort of slip-n-side record that probably exists.
