FriarBall: Domination

Sunday, May 6, 2007


Finally, the Padres make use of a 10 K day by Jake Peavy. Who would have guessed the Friars could lose 16 and 10 K games before finally taking down the Fish on Sunday on Peavy's third straight double-digit strike out performance.

This has got to be one of the great runs - at least by a Padres pitcher - in a long time and it's performances like these are keeping the Padres in the NL West race early on. It was also nice to see Cla Meredith bounce back after his tough performance Saturday, and if the starters and pen can keep things going, this may be a team that can find some postseason success.

The pieces seem to be here, the only problem is they haven't all been clicking at the same time. It's a good thing this is happening early this season though so that maybe by September they will figure out how to put it all together.

Let's hope Chris Young can keep this thing going against the Braves tomorrow.
