Hail to the (real) Kings

I have to say I was pretty nervous when I saw we were facing King Felix Hernandez today - and putting Justin Germano on the mound opposite him. But despite Trevor Hoffman's attempt to make the game more interesting late, the Friars won the game and took the series.

Except for Greg Maddux's shellacking Saturday, it was nice to see the Padres offense all get going. Kevin Kouzmanoff brought his average up after a 3-for-3 night Saturday (even though it dropped a little bit Sunday) and it appears Adrian Gonzalez also found his stroke Sunday and broke out of his slump.

And after a day off on Monday, the Padres should find more success with Jake Peavy taking the mound Tuesday against the Cubs.
