2016 San Diego Padres News
It’s a tough week to be a fan of the San Diego Padres. After producing a glimmer of hope last week by defeating the Los Angeles Dodgers on the road, San Diego just cannot seem to find their stride. In fact, the Padres have only won two out of their last eight games. They have also been on the road for three complete series, including their most recent clash with the Toronto Blue Jays. Tuesday’s loss was especially difficult, as it came after 12 innings of gameplay. It looked like the Padres would finally get a much-needed victory, but the Blue Jays ultimately outscored them 7 – 6. Tickets to Friday’s home game against the Cincinnati Reds start at $17.
San Diego Padres fans can hardly believe that their team not only beat, but also completely shut out the Los Angeles Dodgers on the road last Thursday. That’s because they followed up the impressive win with a depressing three losses. The Dodgers rallied to beat the visiting Padres 10 - 6 on Friday, 4 - 3 on Saturday, and 3 - 1 on Sunday. This all leaves San Diego fans scratching their heads, as they will have to regroup when they host the formidable San Francisco Giants starting this Friday, July 15. Tickets to that game are on sale and available for purchase starting at prices as low as $20.
Just when it looked like the San Diego Padres were finally starting to gain some traction, they go and follow three wins in a row with three losses in a row. San Diego was setting up for the sweep against the Cincinnati Reds on the road, but they blew the fourth and final match 0 - 3 while only managing five hits. This was the start of a downward spiral, as the Padres went on to lose two of two games against the Baltimore Orioles, who walloped them with no less than 11 runs in each match. Now, the Padres will prepare to host the New York Yankees. Tickets to Saturday’s game are $20.
The San Diego Padres were coming off of a four-game losing streak when they took on the Marlins on Wednesday night. The Marlins had already won the first two games of the series, so things weren’t looking pretty for the Padres. However, the Padres were able to keep up with the Miami team and then some. The fifth inning was when things started to pull in the way of the Padres as they scored three runs and pulled into the lead. The Marlins weren’t able to do much offensively after the fourth inning and the game ended at 6-3 for the Padres. Cheer the Padres on to another win when they take on the Nationals on June 16. Tickets are still up for grabs.
The San Diego Padres have had better seasons. They are now fifth in the National League West with an overall record of 19-28 following yesterday’s loss against the San Francisco Giants.

The Padres will look to avoid the shut out tonight before heading to Phoenix to play the Arizona Diamondbacks. They will return home to Petco Park on Wednesday, June 1 to play the Seattle Mariners. Be sure to be there to give them your support! Tickets start at prices as low as $12.

Although the Padres made a good run for the comeback by scoring two runs in the top of the eighth, it just wasn’t enough to avoid the loss. San Diego is now 7-13 overall and fifth in The National League West. Their next home game is Monday, May 2 against the Colorado Rockies. Tickets are $12.
