This season started rough for the Padres with a three consecutive game loss to their biggest rivals, the Dodgers. After a couple of wins, but more losses, Padres fans question the reality of a good baseball season.
The first game of the season was Monday, April 4 against the Dodgers. Since then, the Padres has total of 19 wins and 26 losses. This puts them in last place in the National League West, with the San Francisco Giants in first with a total of 27 wins and 19 losses.
“Right now I don’t think the team is doing that well. I would love to see the Padres pick up the pace for the rest of the season,” said senior Emelie Ashdown.
However, as the season goes on, more players have been moved to the disabled list. Second baseman, Jemile Weeks was placed on the DL after injuring his leg a few weeks back. This and other players being added to the DL have seriously weakened the Padres’ game.
With over one hundred games left to play in the season, Padres’ fans hope that they can turn the season around and make up for some lost games and hopefully ending with a winning season. Last year, the Padres ended the 2015 season 74-88 (a losing season), landing them in fourth place.
The next series is against the San Francisco Giants, the leaders of the Nation League West. The series begins Monday May 23 at 7:15 PM and ends May 25 at 12:45 PM at AT&T Park.
