Yep. Weather was a bit nuts too.

Greinke is getting beat up tonight. 4 runs through 4 innings and already over 80 pitches. What's up with him?

I think he mentally struggles against the Dodgers in LA. Last season he gave up like 5 HR's (tied the all time Dbacks record for most HR's given up in a game) in a game in LA.

Looks like we're dropping another one tonight unless we can do something in the top of the 9th.

Dodgers are good. And they play well in Chavez Ravine.

We can split with the Dodgers if we win tomorrow. Good pitching today.

A win today and taking 2 of 3 from the Padres would mean a 5-5 road trip, which is encouraging.

Bradley has been superb in middle relief.

Bradley has been lights out. And I'm pretty jealous of his sweet beard. He started growing it when no shave November started. That beard would take me 3 years :P

Yeah, I'm not sold on Rodney.
He may still have velocity, the ball has no movement. Patient hitters time his delivery and connect.

Way to hurl that thing Robbie! We split the series against the dreaded empire. Good thing we won't see them again until.... Friday. But at least that will be at home and Greinke will not be pitching in the series. After that we won't run into them again until July.

RR had a little bit of a rough start, but then came on strong. Peralta and Pollock hit well to come out of slumps. Hoover had another good outing from the bullpen.

Robbie can be downright dominant at times. If he can get it all together... I know Randy Johnson spent a good deal of time with him the last two Spring training periods and during the offseason.

They are really putting it on the Padres tonight. 11-1 in the 9th. Hazelbaker just ripped a triple. Miller hit 99 on the gun earlier too.

The Padres SS, Rybar, just came in and pitched the final out of the 9th. A grounder to 2nd. Lol.

Nice to see Miller go deep in the game and have such a great fastball.

Slick double play to end the game.

That was pretty sweet. I was hoping they'd turn it because that kid's ERA is already at 8 or something.

Eleven runs on only nine hits. But Padres pitchers walked nine batters. Snakes made the most of what was given to them ...

Miller looked like the guy they thought they were getting when they made the trade. Solid start.
