Anthony Bass RP SD 7 Months
Padres reliever Anthony Bass was charged with four runs in his second inning of work Tuesday against the Cardinals.
Bass was ripped off tonight. The first hitter to reach against him did so on a strikeout/wild pitch. The second had a clean single, but Yadier Molina followed with a double-play ball, only Everth Cabrera vacated second base way too early on the relay and wasn't given credit for the out. With runners on second and third with one out, Bud Black had Bass intentionally walk Jon Jay, and Daniel Descalso followed with a grand slam. That was certainly a mistake for Bass, but he could have been out of the inning before then and he didn't deserve for his ERA to jump from 2.60 to 3.64 tonight.

Padres manager Bud Black won't rule out Anthony Bass getting a start before the end of the season.
Bass has appeared only in relief since being activated from the disabled list earlier this month, but his shoulder feels fine and he could be ready to stretch it out. He's posted a 4.82 ERA in 14 starts this season.

Anthony Bass, San Diego's fifth pitcher of the ninth inning, struck out the only Diamondback he faced Thursday to earn his first career save.
What better demonstration of the excess of September than the Padres using five relievers to protect a one-run lead in a completely meaningless game. Luke Gregerson started the ninth, but was pulled after giving up a leadoff single. After Joe Thatcher issued a walk, Nick Vincent, Tommy Layne and Bass all retired one batter apiece to end the 6-5 game.
