The series over the weekend against the Phillies was great! We lost the first two games, which was not good, but we won the next two to split the series.
Talk about Adrian Gonzalez. I mean, it’s scary to think about how good he would be if he wasn’t stuck in Petco Park. Not that he can’t hit at Petco, but it seems like he catches fire on the road, especially at hitter’s parks. Over the weekend, he had seven hits, including three home runs, two of them in last night’s game. He’s scary good.
Another amazing part of this series was Wade LeBlanc’s performance last night. He went seven innings, allowing four hits and no runs. Oh my goodness he was good. I’m so psyched at our pitching right now. We’ve got some amazing dudes going out there day after day and pitching great games. Let me tell you, it’s so true that without pitching, you don’t win. But we do have pitching, and I know it’s a huge part of why we are still in first place in the NL West.
Scotty Hairston also had a home run last night. I am sooo happy that he’s back.
The weekend series was great. We’ve still got a half a game lead over the Dodgers. Now we’re going to play the Mets for three games before we get to come home.
GO FIRST-PLACE PADRES!!
