Jake Peavy's 16 K's were a franchise record for a Pads pitcher, and yet it was still not enough to beat John Smoltz and the Braves. Some Padre bloggers have been anguishing over the loss, as their offense has been as unreliable as ours has been from time to time.
Ducksnorts, another Padres blog, has way too much time on his hands, and way too much access to Microsoft Excel. He does do a good job of showing how Peavy got better as the game went on. It's a good thing we got to him early.
