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 drinking.
The Padres won again last night, this time by a score of 4-2. Edinson Volquez pitched alright and they got a couple of runs off of Mat Latos to keep it close before scoring 2 more in the 8th when Nick Hundley ripped a double down the line. After a stretch in which they went 3-18 the Padres have now won 9 of their last 13 games. What does this mean? This was my thought as the game ended last night:
This @Padres team is so weird.

Two up, two down: Padres 4, Reds 2 – Dennis Lin (U-T)
“Normally I can get first-pitch strikes and make them hit pitches you want them to hit. I wasn’t able to do that,” Latos said. “Falling behind is what hurt me today. It raised my pitch count up. I wasn’t able to go as deep in a ballgame as I could have.” [Brock]

I still say sell. But if you can get Cliff Lee for Sean O'Sullivan and Will Venable then who knows, man.

They're sniffing and licking baseballs in the dugout now. Please score some runs. #PPLive

At no time during this press conference did Bud Black say, “You know what that is? That’s baseball.”
Nick Hundley with the a big hit in the 8th pushes the Padres ahead.
