Redding Loses Despite 0 ER Performance

The Padres lost 6-3 despite allowing only two earned runs. Tim Redding was tagged to the loss after a Khalil Greene throwing error cost the right-hander four unearned runs in the fourth inning. Even with the tough loss, Padre fans can take solace in knowing that the 5th spot in the starting rotation is in good hands. Redding now owns a WHIP of 1.31 and ERA of 0.00 in 5.1 innings of work this year. Aside from Greene's 4-run error, today's other major disappointment was Ramon Hernandez's grounding into a double play with the bases loaded in the eighth, which killed what hope remained for the Padres.

Today's big numbers are 4 & 11 as in Unearned Runs and Runners Left On-Base. The Padres, again, squandered excellent pitching performances by failing both in the field and at the dish.

And another thing, was Khalil Greene's going 0-4 at the plate, being picked off at first base and making a costly throwing error merely an off-night or the beginning of a prolonged sophomore slump? I maintain my belief that Khalil will have a good year, but today's game has me considering that I may be wrong.
