15-8 Padres!!!15-8!!!! I am so excited that I could cry!!! I’ve been blogging for a week now and this is our first win. Wow, what a game! 22 hits by the Padres. Everyone in the starting lineup (except Maddux) had at least one hit. I am going to go through the lineup and each person’s hits. Jody Gerut went 2-for-6 with 4 RBI, including a 3-run homer in the 7-run 9th. Edgar Gonzalez…wow, this guy can hit! He went 4-for-5, with 2 singles and 2 homers. One home run was at the beginning of the game, and the other was in the big 9th. Brian Giles went 4-for-5. Adrian Gonzalez went 2-for-6 with a RBI. Kouz went 3-for-5 with a homer and 2 RBI. Chase Headley went 1-for-5. Khalil went 2-for-5, driving in the tie-breaking run in the 9th. Michael Barrett went 2-for-4 with a RBI. Tony Clark and Craig Stansberry each drove in a run. We took a 1-0 lead in the first, which was quickly erased by 3 for the Rockies in the bottom of the first. We tied it up in the 3rd, but over the next three innings, Colorado built up an 8-3 lead. But we put up 5 runs in the 6th to tie it. It stayed that way til the 9th. We went single, single, ground-out, single, ground-rule double, single, home run, home run, strikeout, strikeout. It was beautiful. Maddux was not good, but his team got him off the hook. The bullpen was extremely solid. What I loved most about this game was that we kept fighting back. We were down 8-3, but we tied it up. We got hit after hit after hit. We broke out of the pathetic losing streak. I knew it was interleague play that killed us! We battled tonight, and we came out very victorious. What a game! I feel better than I have in weeks. Let’s keep this going! Go Padres!
