I really hope Maddux wins tonight. I know it's fun to root for the Padres to lose, but I just feel terrible for Maddux. He's started twelve games now without a win. When was his last win? May 10th. Let that sink in for a minute.
The 42-year-old, who has five losses, seven no-decisions and a 4.11 earned run average during that rough patch, has often been victimized by San Diego's sluggish offense, as the Padres have scored three runs or less eight times during his winless span.
Go Padres!! Go Maddux!
