Can you think of anything better than watching the Padres keep the Dodgers from clinching the division for a night?
How about TWO nights in a row?
The Padres win tonight 5-0 and sweep the Dodgers in this short 2 game series.
I absolutely love it!
Clayton Richard threw 7 shutout innings giving up just 1 hit and 3 BB.
How did the Padres batters do?
Kevin Kouzmanoff hit a laser of a 3 run home run in the 3rd off Garland.
Nick Hundley went 3 for 4 to raise his average to .246 on the season.
Chase Headley went 2 for 4, drove in a run and scored a run.
And Loretta put a figure 4 leg lock on Everth Cabrera as he tried to get back to 3b in a 4th inning rundown and was called for obstruction. Cabrera scores!
The Padres have played very good baseball the 2nd half of this season and I am excited about their chances of contending in 2010.
Now lets see if the Rockies can go into Chavez Ravine, take 3 games from them in LA and complete the Dodgers humiliating end of the season.
