The Padres first come-from-behind win happened on Opening Day in St Louis. They were not able to do it again until last Wednesday vs the Reds. Sunday they made it 3 wins in their last 5 games, and two of the come-from-behind variety, with the 8-6 win in Houston.
Before Sunday's win I was sure the only game San Diego would take in Houston was the one JA Happ started, because he's on my fantasy team. It's been that kind of season so far for the kid. It was nice to see some other fantasy owner suffer this week as well.
The last 5 games the Padres have scored 3, 0, 4, 3, and 8 runs. The previous 5 hey had scored 2, 0, 7, 2, and 2 runs. 18 runs the last 5, 13 the previous five. I'll call that progress, even if 4 of those games were played in the bandbox known as Minute Maid Park.
So it's off to Chicago and the Cubs.
I'll look to make these posts longer as the season goes, and include some actual analysis. Right now I'm just trying to get back into the blogging groove.
