Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were (day) drinking.
The Padres earned themselves a nice little 4-1 win on Labor Day helping them to pull even with the San Francisco Giants at 61-76. Ian Kennedy pitched well and the Padres did just enough against Barry Zito to get some runs on the board.

“When I wanted it to go up, it was up, and when it was time to go down, it was down,” Kennedy said. “I think it was only in that one inning where it kind of got away from me a little bit, but I felt like for the most part, I could throw my fastball where I needed to and kind of work off that. That’s how you throw successful games.” [Powers]

I like Ian Kennedy's line (6 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 2 BB, 7 K). How did he look?

Norf goes way up the ladder to knock Barry Zito’s offering to right field, driving in 2 runs, and extending the Padres lead to 3-0 early in the game.
