Richard's struggles continue

The Sports Xchange
Roster Report · Notes, Quotes · Richard's struggles continue

The Padres are finally hitting the ball ... and the starting pitching has gone south.

Left-hander Clayton Richard gave up eight runs (seven earned) on 10 hits in 3 1/3 innings Tuesday night as the Padres lost 8-6 at Milwaukee despite getting a season-high 13 hits.

Richard lost a fourth straight start. Mat Latos is 0-5 after six starts. Dustin Moseley is 1-4, although his problems have more to do with run support than his pitching.

Richard, however, has struggled over his last five starts. He has worked only 26 2/3 innings in those outings, giving up 25 runs (18 earned) on 35 hits and 12 walks for a 6.07 ERA.

His 4.79 ERA is now the second highest in the rotation to Latos' 4.86 mark.

Aaron Harang's ERA is also climbing, now 4.07 after allowing 14 earned runs over his last 18 innings, and Moseley gave up six runs (five earned) over five innings in his last outing.

The only San Diego starter on a roll right now is Tim Stauffer, who has thrown four consecutive quality starts, lowering his season ERA to 2.61.
