  • PADRES NOTES: Struggling LeBlanc will miss turn in rotation
    "It was Mat's fifth day, and we wanted to give Kevin a little breather," Black said. "And we felt it was in Wade's best interest to maybe skip a start."

  • PADRES: Offense dormant again in ninth straight loss
    It just seems like we're playing on our heels," starting pitcher Jon Garland (13-10) said. "It honestly seems like we're going out not to lose -- not to lose the division -- instead of going out to win and win the division. "Right now we've hit a bad spell, and it plays tricks on your mind."

  • Padres Trail: Nine Straight
    This is the franchise's longest losing streak since losing 9 straight in 2003 (May 14-23). The last time they lost 10 straight, it didn't stop until they'd lost 14 in a row (May 8-21, 1994).

  • THE KEPT FAITH: If it's Yellow let it Mellow
    So my question for the Padres is why not find a compromise between the brown and yellow of the 1970’s and now?
