July 25, 2017 (San Diego) - What’s different about this year’s Padres is that, instead of losing without making an effort, they actually are making an effort.  They’re still losing most of their games, but the scores are a lot closer.  Last night against the Mets, the final score was 5-3.  Believe it or not, the Padres are improving.  But they still looked for a win tonight against Seth Lugo, who was on the hill for the Mets against Kyle Lloyd.
