Silver lining

The Padres can still clinch a split of the season series against the Cardinals with a win this afternoon. They are 9-7 in series finales on the year. Today it will be Mat Latos taking on Chris Carpenter. Latos has not faced the Cardinals this year while Carpenter started against the Padres on Opening Day, a 5-3 extra-inning win for the Padres.

A few notes following last night’s game:

Aaron Harang has now worked 7.0-or-more innings in three of his last four starts and is 1-0 with a 3.42 ERA (10 ER/26.1 IP) over that stretch. He is 3-2 with a 3.40 ERA (17 ER/45.0 IP) in seven starts at home this year.

Chase Headley (1-for-3 last night) has hit safely in 18 of his last 24 games since 4/29, batting .316 (24-for-76) with six doubles during that stretch.

Brad Hawpe (1-for-4 last night) has hit safely in 19 of his last 23 games with an at-bat, hitting .314 (27-for-86) with eight doubles and 13 runs scored in 25 games overall since 4/25 over that span.
