Back come the Padres

Josh Fogg has suddenly turned into Josh Fogg, and the Padres’ hopes are once again alive. San Diego has scored four times in the third inning to erase an early 3-0 lead.

Loved the bewildered look at Fogg’s face after Adrian Gonzalez smoked a grand slam to put San Diego ahead 4-3. Like he hasn’t seen that happen a bunch of times before during his career with the Pirates.

So then, the pitching match-up has gone as expected so far. The difference is that Jake Peavy did better damage control, limiting Colorado to two after loading the bases with no outs in the first. Fogg loaded them with no outs in the third, and all three (plus the hitter) scored.

Not smart to let a pitcher the caliber of Peavy off the hook. Maybe the Rockies’ magic has reached an end.
