And the hits just keep on rolling...

I don't know what's worse. Getting shut out by the Padres or giving up seven runs to them. This is the same Padres offense that's just rungs above the Astros in the league pecking order. It's not like they're an offensive juggernaut.

Yet, Bud Norris continues to mystify and frustrate us. He struck out seven in four innings, yet he walked three. He gave up two home runs and a double to David Eckstein. DAVID ECKSTEIN! He threw 94 pitches and only got one ground ball. Norris is struggling right now, there's no doubt about it.

The offense didn't perform much better. Three hits was all they could muster off Latos. Luckily for the offense, the hits came from scuffling players like Pedro Feliz (1 for 3), Carlos Lee (1 for 4) and Kazuo Matsui (1 for 4). Matsui even managed a rare extra-base hits. For those of you unfamiliar with what that is, it's when a batter gets to take more than one base at a time. You may not have seen many of them, so I don't blame you for being confused.

These stories are getting old, aren't they? Second verse, same as the first...
