Padres lose their first game of the 2011 season, but take first series

"Let go of my underwears, Headley!"
"Let go of my underwears, Headley!"

It's kind of disappointing that we didn't complete the sweep of the Cardinals, especially since Dustin Moseley had such a solid start. I hate to waste a good pitching appearance.

Despite suffering loss, Moseley encore as a starter

“He was in control of the game,” catcher Nick Hundley said Sunday. “He threw his sinker to both sides of the plate really well, kept them honest in and threw all three of his off-speed pitches for strikes. Any time you can do that, you’re going to have a good day, and he did. He threw the ball great.”

I was watching Baseball Tonight and Quick Pitch last night half expecting the National Media to be yelling at us "SEE THE PADRES CAN'T SCORE WITHOUT GONZALEZ!"

If we learned anything from last year, it's as long as we keep winning or splitting the series then we'll be first place. I take some comfort in that, at least until we lose ten in a row, choke and the wheels fall off.

Here's a question for you: If you have to lose one game out of three, which is the best and worst game to lose? Can we agree that losing the last game is the worst? I can't decide on the best game to lose. If you lose the first then you have a two game streak and momentum going into the next series, but during the series, you hate to get off to a bad start by losing the first. Vote in the poll!
