FriarBall: Consistency, anyone?

Consistency, anyone?

Why is it that every time the Padres seem to be headed in the right direction they have a game like Tuesday's? They had the lead before the reliable - at least this season - Heath Bell gave up not one, but two runs and the lead in the eighth and the Braves won 3-2.

The saddest thing about the loss? Mike Cameron actually hit a ball. And not only did he hit it, but he hit it out for his first home run this season. The Friars also got a solid performance from Triple A call-up Justin Germano, which could have easily been a disaster.

I still think the Padres will put this thing together and really get on a role but these one run losses are tough to swallow AND tough to figure out.
