Is Latos a giggler? Looks like he might be.
Anyway, he pitches tonight against the Giants, a team the Padres have now defeated 7 straight times this season. Latos in particular has dominated the Gints, facing them twice in this young season and rolling up the following line: 16 IP, 5 hits, 0 R, 1 BB, 8 Ks and 2 Ws.
Of course, Juanathan Sanchez has looked pretty good against the Padres in his own right, but has just had the bad end of the stick. One would figure he, and the Giants, would break through at some point and earn a W against the Padres. If that happens tonight I'll be saddened.
As an aside, I'll note how the Padres have fared against their NL West rivals through May 17:
Shame about that Dadgers series, but I can live with the rest so far. Two of those Rockies losses, after all, were to Ubaldo.
