Covering all the bases: road trip success –
Subject 1: Solid East Coast road trip so far – The Padres are 5-1 so far on this road trip after sweeping the Reds and claiming two of three wins over the Pirates. They finish with 2 games against the Guardians so whoever will come home with a winning road trip. The wins they get are expected and crucial as we sit a month into the season with the Pads’ record standing 15-8 tied with the Dodgers for first place.
Topic 2: Hosmer and Manny – Holy cow the crew chiefs coming out really hot to start the season. Hosmer and Manny take the 1st and 2nd spots in the MLB batting average. Hoz batting .382 and Manny at .375. Manny Machado also leads MLB with hits at 33 and Eric Hosmer just behind him in third with 29.
Subject 3: Joe Musgrove and his old crew – Guys, hometown hero Joe Musgrove I think should now be called 4 and 0 joe. He picked up his 4and win of the season against his former Pirates as he continues to improve on the mound this season. He also leads MLB in quality pitches and starts.
Topic 4: Clevs return: So the Padres are looking really good winning five of their last six and now Mike Clevinger can make his 2022 season debut against his former team the Guardians in Cleveland on Tuesday night. How is it poetic?
