Padres rookies struggle in series opener

MLB: San Diego Padres at Miami Marlins Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

In Miami, Florida today, the Padres took the loss against the Marlins, putting the Padres four games below .500. Even though the Padres lost, it was an emotional roller-coaster of a game. In the first inning, the Marlins scored three runs off pitcher Logan Allen. The Padres quickly retaliated with three of their own runs. This gave a lot of hope to the Padres fans, especially because we could really use the win. But Miami came to play and in the second inning scored four more runs, giving them the lead. In the sixth inning, the Marlins scored four more and one more in the eighth. The Marlins finished the game with 12 runs, beating the Padres by 5.

Logan Allen started the game today and pitched 2.1 innings. Giving up 7 hits, 7 runs, 3 walks and not striking a single person out. It is safe to say this was not Allen’s best game. But as a true Padres fan, I have faith he can make a comeback. Luis Perdomo pitched 3.1 innings, giving up 3 runs. It wasn’t a great day for the pitching staff, but Chris Paddack starts tomorrow, so hopefully he can hold off the Marlins from any more wins.

For the Padres bats tonight, Manuel Margot and Franmil Reyes both hit home runs. We also saw a one run double from Manny Machado. It wasn’t the best game for the Padres rookies, but one thing the Padres are good at is looking for the positives, and moving forward.

Final score: 12-7 Marlins.
