The season has started, and already the Padres find themselves in a hole! After struggling with the Mets in the first three games of the season, the Padres looked to turn the tide against Colorado this past weekend, but to no avail. The Padres offense once again was no where to be found, as was the arms of the Padres starting rotation. The Padres have accumulated a total of 14 runs in 6 games this season, which almost averages to 2 runs per game. To put this number into perspective, the St. Louis Cardinals scored 14 runs in their game against the Giants, those 14 runs were scored in a span of 3 of the 9 innings meaning yes. The St Louis. Cardinals have scored as many runs in 3 innings, as the Padres have in 54 innings. Nevertheless, there hasn’t really been any positive sign from the Padres in their first six games thus far.
Star of the Week: Chris Denorfia: .417 AVG, 5 hits, 2 doubles, 1 RBI and 3 runs scored this past week.
Dud of the Week: Padres Starting Rotation, outside of Eric Stults.
This week, the Padres will take on the LA Dodgers in a 3 game series, and then take on the Colorado Rockies in a 3 game series as well, both being at Petco Park.
The Padres record this past week was a tie for the league worse, 1-5. Which obviously brings their season total to 1-5.
The best pitching performance this past week goes to Eric Stults. In a year, (or years, and future years) where there is limited offense, the Padres need pitching to keep games within reach. That is what Stults did on the mound against the Mets this past week. Giving him the nod for best pitching performance of the week.
