It's not everyday you see a starting pitcher throw a seven inning one-hit outing like Mat Latos did, what's even worse is when you see a team allow just one run on one hit like the Cincinnati Reds did at Petco Park on Monday night and still lose.
"We saw a good slider and saw some funky swings on it," Padres manager Bud Black said of Latos who struck out four batters on the night. "You saw the good velocity, the good change and he had a good, deceptive arm angle that's tough to pick up."
"It's baseball epitomized, really," Reds right fielder Jay Bruce said. "We had some opportunities. They made some good plays. We couldn't get the hit we needed. Mat did an unbelievable job. Sam did great. We just couldn't push one across. That's the way it goes.
