This HP Ump is really calling that "high strike", at least for their pitcher!

Bellinger's HR looked like a lazy fly to centerfield. And Freeman pokes the ball the other way against the shift for an RBi.

Meanwhile, Bell scorches a liner right to Turner and Drury absolutely crushes a ball that dies at the warning track.

We can't catch a break. What the hell is going on?

It seems as though the biggest gap between us and the dogs is pitching. They are absolutely dominating. We have zero clue about how to hit Anderson. Do we have a pitcher with that kind of stuff? I don't think so. And they've mentioned it already in this broadcast....the dogs have a special ability to take average pitchers and turn them into gems.....constantly.......we don't have that. Niblets is not in that category it appears as if anything our guys have regressed this year as the season progresses. Our hitting has been absolutely shut down by their pitching. And Yu does the typical giving up the bombs early. Fortunate for him those were one run bombs. This appears to be much the same as the first 2 failures for the Pads. We aren't ready for them yet. Damn this sucks.

Darvish is pitching well. They capitalized on a couple of bad pitches.

Anderson has thrown bad pitches this game. Our guys just watched them sail by. Same old story.

Darvish is pitching great. First Base defense has improved 100%.

Hitters should each take 100 pitches from a machine. ASAP. All of them.

LOL that catch by Taylor.

Just face it. Nothing is going to go our way this series. Maybe it's Vin Scully weekend.

We're giving Anderson far too many 1 pitch outs, which could be why Darvish is over 100 pitches and he's just past 80.

Padre hitters are 100% to blame for this "performance." Garcia could haven been better but it's a zero hit offense.
