Yangervis Solarte deposited Josh Osich's fastball into the left-field seats, circled the bases at a half sprint and leapt into the air before coming down on home plate.

The Padres can't figure out how to beat the Giants

San Diego loses 3-4, totaling 3 series, 9 games, and 9 losses against San Francisco. Part of being a Padres fan is taking a seemingly relentless amount of lumps. Plenty of losses, injuries to your favorite players, and taking a personal trip to San Francisco and watching your team lose on a bloop-error walkoff. Woe is the life of the Friar faithful. Today's woe was another walkoff...

Matt Kemp, Where Art Thou?

The Padres lost to the Giants 1-0 on Monday night, the lone run scoring on a routine pop fly to semi-shallow right field. That ball’s caught most of the time, but the Padres had second baseman Alexi Amarista shading up the middle and right fielder Matt Kemp playing deep, so they both had trouble getting there and more trouble deciding who should catch the ball. It feel in between...
