Did you watch today's Padres game? If so, I am terribly sorry for you, because you wasted three hours watching a complete dumpster fire that started Tyson Ross doing his best impression of Ross Ohlendorf. The ace of the San Diego rotation faced eight Cubs while only retiring one. Five of those eight batters scored, and three of them were given free passes to first.

Things weren't any better on the offensive side of things. The Friars struck out nine times, had no extra base hits, and only drew two walks. Their one run came off Justin Grimm, who had to throw two wild pitches to get pinch runner Jabari Blash to third so that Alexei Ramirez could hit a sacrifice fly to bring him home.

The Padres have tomorrow off to figure out what went so horribly, horribly wrong today. They'll resume games on Thursday when Andrew Cashner gets the start against the Giants at 7:10 PM.
