13 runs?? 23 hits??
The Padres won 13-6 yesterday.
No, I’m not kidding.
It was the most ridiculous game I’ve seen the Padres play this season, especially with the way we have been playing. This game was a completely joke, but it was so much fun!
Somehow, someway, we got an insane amount of bat power. We took a lead, lost the lead, and came back and took over the lead. We didn’t give up. We didn’t shut down. We were on fire!
We got eight runs in the top of the eighth. Simply nuts. We had 23 hits. Jason Bartlett and Cameron Maybin both went 4-for-6.
Even though this was the only game that we won in the three-game series, it was a seriously great win. Hopefully that momentum will continue as we go to Colorado. Who I am kidding? Of course it’s going go carry over! We’re going to Coors Field!
But you know what I just realized is that the opening game is on Friday the 13th. Colorado has not been a good place for us, ever. It all started with Game 163, and really strange things have been happening to us there ever since. I hope we get out okay.
In other news, MLBlogs.com is getting a make-over, which means that you might not be able to access my blog this weekend. I definitely won’t be able to, which means no exciting posts from me this weekend. I just wanted to let you know that there may be some issues, but everything should be back up on Monday and I will have a blog full of fabulous new features thanks to WordPress. I can’t wait!!
I hope we have a great series against the Rockies. I think it’s about time that the last-place Padres should cream the first-place Rockies.
