Padres swept by Marlins in 6-3 defeat

Things were looking good for a while there when Joe "Free" Wieland was breezing through the Marlins' order. Then in the 5th inning, realizing that Padres fans were super bored by the lack of runs Wieland broke the scoreless tie by pulling a two out, two run double to right field. The thing is all that base running tired him out and he left the game shortly there after with a no-decision and a 2-2 tie.

Andrew Cashner took the mound later on in the 8th throwing nothing but 101 and 102 mph fastballs. He was throwing so hard that dudes in the stands were sniffing his balls for smoke. With the bases loaded he walked in a run with a pitch no where near the strike zone. On the next pitch John Baker let another Marlin score on a passed ball. An RBI single eventually knocked Cashner out of the game. Baker remained in though to let a ball pop out of his glove again and give up another run..

Edward Mujica closed out the game while Heath Bell sat in the bullpen looking real uncomfortable that he had lost his closer job in front of his former team.
