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.
Last night the Padres 7 game win streak came to an end as the Giants took game 2 of the series 5-4. They meet today at 12:45 for the rubber game: Eric Stults for San Diego and Madison Bumgarner for San Francisco.
Power rally not enough to extend win streak – Corey Brock (mlb.com)
Two up, two down: Giants 5, Padres 4 – Jeff Sanders (U-T San Diego)
“Cain had probably more than we’ve seen in a long time, a wide assortment of pitches,” Black said. “He was really mixing his pitches and we couldn’t solve him. Then he left some pitches up [for home runs], and we put a little stress on him.” [Brock]

If I were Jesus Guzman's ribs, I'd double my life insurance before he stands in against Bumgarner tomorrow. #sfgiants.

This is how Jesus Guzman celebrated his 2 run HR in the top of the 8th when the Padres took the lead: Yelling maniacally while turning away from opponent.
This is how Sergio Romo celebrates saves: Yelling maniacally, invoking spirits, and facing his opponent.
I am not offended by either episode of emotion. You?
Jesus Guzman’s HR didn’t end up winning the game like we had hoped but it sure is worth a look.
