Big Pitch Little Hit Wins One For The Padres Today

The Pads beat the Reds today, but barely. (Here.) Weak-hitting San Diego took the game 2-1 when a Josh Bard grounder just made it through the infield with the bases loaded.

The hefty lefty David Wells pitched a strong six innings, and Cla Meredith, and Trevor Hoffman nailed down the victory. Meredith is nearly unhittable this year.

Portly pitcher Wells pitched well but was an embarrassment on the bases when he got thrown out by a mile at home plate in one inning. The defense of the southpaw with the masticating maw was a bit off too when he was slow coming off the mound in another inning allowing a bunt single. But overall, the beer-bellied mercenary hurler earned his money today.


PS: Today's victory raised the Padres record to 8-10 for home games with Mister Americano in the stands. They're 1-0 when Mister Americano follows them on the road due to a victory in Anaheim. I'll be at Wednesday's game against the Rockies in San Diego and Friday's against the Giants in San Francisco on Friday.
