Facing the Giants

Yesterday was an off-day. It was very different not having a game, but I was still catching up from Sunday, so it was all good. I did get some exciting news, though: Hyun Young is treating me to a Padres game in July…in these incredible seats!

It’s going to be so much fun, and I’m already planning it all out. I can’t wait for July 18th! That’s going to be the third game in a series against the Rockies, so maybe Tom and Jen will be there that night. I know Hyun Young and I will have so much fun cheering for our Padres and cheering against the Rockies :)

Thanks Hyun Young!! :)

On Saturday, I went to my brother’s last regular season game. His team won 24-8. I was keeping score, and it was absolutely crazy. They got nine runs in the first inning, and 12 runs in the fourth. It was insane to keep score, but I survived. Well, pretty much. I did get a terrible sunburn on my arms. Thankfully, we were in the shade most of the game on Sunday, so it didn’t get worse.

Tonight we are playing the Giants, thankfully still at home. My best friends and their family are going to be at the game! I am so excited for them, and hopefully they’ll take lots of pictures for me.

It will be interesting to see how my Padres do tonight. We’ve got the momentum from the sweep over the weekend, as well as a day of rest. Chris Young is going to be starting, and hopefully he can give us a solid outing.

Last time out in Chicago, he gave up four home runs in only a few innings. But I think he will be much better at home, without the Wrigley wind. Last time the Giants were in town, we swept them in three. Hint hint…

Even with the sweep over the weekend, we are still 10 games behind the Dodgers. But we are in third place. I think we moved up a few spots, but that’s probably because the Rockies and Diamondbacks are not doing well down there. Hey, if we were able to sweep the Giants in this series, we would gain a few games on them at least.

Well, if we just keep that pitching and hitting from the weekend, we will be in good shape.

GO PADRES!!!

No problem :) It was the only thing I could do for you. I was aiming for the August game when St. Louis (you know, to see HIM rather) comes to town but it’s kinda far away. So.. yeah. Anyway, I’m pretty confident that we are going to win tonight. Go Padres!

Great seats!!! When I went to Petco Stadium, we sat in the nosebleed section but still had fun. Good luck to your Padres.

Yay Padres game! Those are great seats! You guys are gonna have so much fun. Whether that’s the game I treat Tommy to or not, I’ll go anyway. How can you turn down live baseball? And MLBloggers! :) I hope your sunburn gets better…I know that pain hahaha! I wish I could say “go Padres” for this series. But I’ve been a Giants fan since 2004 (they’re second to my Sox, of course), so I gotta go with my boys in orange. Here’s a compromise: I hope the Padres don’t suck this weekend. Hahahaha!
