Padres comeback falls short, lose 3-5

"Wy have you forsaken me?"
"Wy have you forsaken me?"

I recorded the game so I'm just fast forwarding through to see what I missed. Here's some quick notes:

  • Why are the broadcasters Mark Grant and Andy Masur both wearing matching black shirts? Furthermore why are the postgame guys Mike Pomeranz and Mark Sweeney wearing matching green shirts? I get the feeling when Dick Enberg isn't broadcasting the guys like to let loose and forgo the suits. Next best thing? Matching shirts.
  • Kip Wells pitched out of a bases loaded jam early on, but midway through the inning he tried to throw a hit ball behind him and through his legs over to first. It was like he was hiking a football to Mark Kotsay. It was on target just a little short on distance. Wells is just trying to making the most of his time the Bigs I guess.
  • The Padres are wearing the number 48 on their jerseys the rest of the season as a tribute to recently deceased bullpen coach Darrel Akerfelds.
  • Will Venable started the scoring with a home run that the Umps had to review, after originally calling it a triple. I just updated a previous post about all the times a play has been reviewed using video last week. My work never ends!
  • Kip Wells made a wide throw to second that kept the 5th inning alive and the Astros scored 4 runs.
  • Nick Vincent made his debut in relief. He pitched 2 scoreless innings.
  • Chase Headley who originally had the day off had to come back to work and play first and knock in some runs.
