5/6 Morning Mighty: Padres bats go quiet vs. Giants

Padres Giants

Cashner can’t find a groove in loss to Giants – Padres.com
Andrew Cashner all but guarantees a quality start when he steps on the mound at Petco Park, but he is struggling to find the same consistency with his road starts this season.

Call the Carson Bluff: San Diego shouldn’t give in to the Chargers – Bolts from the Blue
As time goes on, the building of an NFL stadium in Carson seems less and less likely to happen.
