Life can get a little confusing at times. A regularly scheduled reminder is very convenient. Especially after someone takes a week off because of the All-Star break. So here’s a refresher of what happened during the last (two) week(s) in faith.
The Padres (53-42) came out of the All-Star break by defeating the New York Mets (58-36) in the first of three games at Citi Field by a score of 4-1. Yu Darvish (9-4, 3.28) allowed one run on four hits and a walk while striking out nine in seven innings.
Eric Hosmer hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. Trent Grisham hit a solo home run and Jake Cronenworth scored on a throwing error by Patrick Mazeika on a ground out by Nomar Mazara in the seventh inning.

Dylan won the Gatorade Baseball player of the year award his Junior year. That’s impressive. What’s not impressive is only having 7 posts on your IG. Dylan, I know the kids are into IG Stories but you’re a professional now, step it up.
My dude is rocking the Jordan 1 Low “Gold Toe.” Excellent choice. Another excellent choice is hemming your trousers a little high to show off your socks. So far I like this kid. He’s also flashing a gang sign for what, I’m assuming, is his gang “The Bussin’ Boys.”
Unless you’ve painted USA across your gut and shamelessly rocked a mullet, I can’t be sure if you love America or support ISIS.
The Padres (54-44) were stomped into a bloody pile of goo by the Detroit Tigers (39-58) in the first of three games at Comerica Park by a score of 12-4. Sean Manaea (5-5, 4.33) allowed nine runs (four earned) on eight hit and a walk with four strikeouts in three and a third innings.
Jurickson Profar hit a solo home run in the third inning. A Trent Grisham double drove in Eric Hosmer and Ha-Seong Kim singled to score Jorge Alfaro & Grisham in the fifth inning.
MacKenzie Gore, who relieved Manaea in the fourth inning, left after two outs in the fifth inning with a sore elbow.
The Padres (55-44) defeated the Detroit Tigers (39-59) by a score of 6-4 in ten innings in the second of three games at Comerica Park. Mike Clevinger (2-3, 3.38) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts in seven innings.
Luke Voit had a double (overturned from a home run on review) that scored Manny Machado & Nomar Mazara and Jorge Alfaro drove in Voit with a ground-rule double in the third inning. In the tenth inning, Jurickson Profar came home when Voit was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded and Alfaro singled to drive in Jake Cronenworth & Machado.
The Padres (55-45) dropped the finale of their three-game series at Comerica Park by a score of 4-3 to the Detroit Tigers (40-59). Yu Darvish (9-4, 3.24) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eleven in seven innings.
Jake Cronenworth scored on a Luke Voit sacrifice fly and Manny Machado came home on a Ha-Seong Kim single in the fourth inning. Jurickson Profar‘s seventh inning single drove in Kim.
We took a week off from Last Week In Faith because of the All Star Break, but over that stretch one of my favorite podcasts dropped an ep after a long hiatus.
The Gwynntelligence Podcast came about around the time TKF got going and has been a staple for fans looking for brutally honest Padres talk.
On this latest ep host HJ Preller recorded with Padres Hot Tub’s Corey Stewart about the potential Juan Soto trade. While using the looming trade deadline decision to really take a hard look at where the franchise is after a brutal recent month of the season, the ep really takes off when they break down the Musgrove extension (before the recent news about the talk heating up).
The strength of Gwynntelligence has always been the show’s ability to pinpoint the fanbase’s collective beliefs and unpack them in a healthy way that reveals their flaws and reminds us of the ultimate goal: winning a title. The Musgrove topic was great for them because they were able to unpack the weighted importance of his story growing up here, while also recognizing that he’s been great for the Padres in his time here so far.
I really wish these guys would put out an ep every week. I miss the bits like the one that opened up this ep. I really wish David Marver would return and talk about what’s going on with this team. Check out this show when ever they put stuff out!
