Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
I told you yesterday that I didn’t think the Padres had a good shot of snapping this losing streak. And — while they made it a tad bit interesting later — it’s really tough to come back from a 7-1 deficit. So with the 11-7 loss to the Washington Nationals the losing streak is (currently) at nine games.
Today's 9 ER performance gives Robbie Erlin a 7.15 ERA, actually worse than the 7.01 ERA of the man he replaced, Clayton Richard.

Stephen Strasburg did look good. But, he threw a lot of pitches (111) and was out after 6.
The Padres are back home at Petco Park until the All-Star break, with three games against the Colorado Rockies and four against the San Francisco Giants.

Mathis, Snyder, Gomes, Rendon. The luminaries of the game have killed the Padres on this road trip.
