Padres drop 2nd half opener to Cards

Jake Peavy was in 2nd place in the ERA hunt to start the night. He got the call to open the 2nd half, and everything was off to a very Jake Peavyesque start, and the boys even spotted him to a 1st inning 1-0 lead. But things quickly unraveled for Jake, and he fell victim to Troy Glaus twice and also was taken deep twice by two other Cards and it proved the difference in the game.

Edgar Gonzalez started off the 2nd half just like he played the first the 3rd inning EGon connected for his 4th HR of the year of Kyle Lohse, but it would quickly be answered in the bottom of the same inning by back to back Cardinal HR's.

The Padres have quite to do to improve this team, and at least become competitive........tonight was actually a solid game, and amazingly enough it was the usually reliable Jake Peavy that gave this game away......
