  • You'll never guess who hit 2018's longest HR
    Franchy Cordero blasted a 489-foot solo shot -- the longest in the Major Leagues this year -- off the center-field scoreboard at Chase Field. It put the Padres up 1-0 in the fourth inning.
  • Ross' near no-no just latest close call for SD
    The Padres are still awaiting the first no-hitter in franchise history, after Tyson Ross' brilliant effort Friday night in Arizona. Ross carried a no-hitter into the eighth and lost it only when Christian Walker lifted a deep fly ball to center field that cleared the glove of Franchy Cordero for a double.

  • Perdomo's rough return raises future questions
    Luis Perdomo has never thrown a pitch at any upper level of the Minors. But Perdomo's start to the 2018 season will almost certainly prompt discussions in the Padres' front office as to whether a move to Triple-A El Paso might be best for his development.
  • Headley adjusting to decreased playing time

  • Comeback bid falls short, Padres lose in extras
    The Padres had one spirited late-inning rally in them Tuesday night. They couldn't muster a second. After tying the game with a two-run ninth inning against Dodgers closer Kenley Jansen, San Diego failed to cash in on some golden opportunities in extras.

  • Sloppy defense too much to overcome for SD
