Houston we have a problem

Padres get hammered 10-3

Justin Germano blinked in the 1st inning, and before he opened his eyes it was 5-0 Astros. It didn't get better from there. He was hit hard, and often as the Friars lose the series opener in Houston. Germano went 3 1/3, gave up 10 hits, walked 3, and gave up 10 er, before Bud Black finally pulled the plug on him. It was by far and away his worst start of the season, and hopefully not a sign of things to come. How he bounces back in 5 days is going to be very important in this young mans season. I think he's got the stuff and shouldn't have much of a problem, as even in this rout he showed poise, didn't get flustered, and just kept trying to go about his business.......problem was that the Astros were going about theirs at the same time. Toss this game out Friar fans, we didn't stand a chance......time to reload and go after them tomorrow.
