Walter Silva came in with a goal - to stay in the game longer than Wade LeBlanc did. "Our bullpen got stretched out yesterday, and those guys need a rest", Silva said. "I want to give them some."*
Silva made it all the way to the third inning before hitting the showers, but his game effort wasn't enough, as the Padres fell 12-2.
Kevin Correia strives to continue his recent run of excellent efforts and snap the Padres' 3 game losing streak tomorrow. Barring that, he hopes to get through the fourth.
Texas, clinging to a half game lead in the AL West, will counter with Derek Holland. Holland has started 5 games for the Rangers in 2009 (and, incidentally, his career). He's made it through six once, and is 0-3, when starting.
