Another outing wasted

Jake Peavy has 26 strikeouts in his last two games yet he is 0-1. How does that happen, especially when you are facing a Nationals team whose starter is 0-4 with an ERA just under 8?

There is no reason the Padres should have fallen short in Monday's 3-2 loss. Granted the lineup had to be adjusted because of Marcus Giles' injury, but as good as he has been, other players have been generating offense this season and one man should not have that much impact on it.

With Chris Young set to take the mound tomorrow against the only Nats starter not struggling that much this year, Shawn Hill (yes 2-2 with a 2.76 ERA is almost Cy Young worthy out here in DC), the Friars need to get the bats going tomorrow if they want to avoid falling below .500.

I hate losses.
