Momentum actually works!!
AHHHH!! Last night’s game was amazing!!
We totally exploded and scored a ton of runs – at Petco Park! I guess the confidence booster from the Red Sox series was pretty legitimate.
In the bottom of the seventh inning, the score was 5-2 Padres. The Braves had just scored those two runs in the top of the inning on a two-run homer by Freddie Freeman.
Then suddenly, we got on a roll. With one out, Orlando Hudson singled, setting up a Ryan Ludwick double to score the first run of the inning. Then Anthony Rizzo was intentionally walked (mistake), giving Cameron Maybin the opportunity to triple in two runs. An out later, Alberto Gonzalez got on base with an error, which also allowed Maybin to score. Jesus Guzman then hit his first major league home run to give us our 11th run of the game.
It was so great. I was pretty much staring at my computer going, another hit? Another run? Wow!
Such a good game. Tim Stauffer had a great start, and Pat Neshek did well. And then Josh Spence made his major league debut by going 1-2-3 in the top of the ninth. Congrats, Josh, and welcome to the majors.
I’m really happy that Anthony had a good game. I was starting to get a little worried about him, but he finally had a big game last night. Two hits, including a double, three runs scored, and one walk.
It was just an amazing game. It felt so good to win by such a large margin, and to have so many fabulous contributions from so many different guys.
On a side note, Kevin Kouzmanoff hit a grand slam for the Sacramento River Cats last night! Yay!!!!
Dustin Moseley is going tonight. Hopefully the momentum will carry once again.
