- 6-1 Padres
This is the kind of game that makes me laugh. It gives me a great feeling. Why? Well, first of all, the Padres won. They played a great, clean, game, and it was so enjoyable. Chris Young threw 7 two-hit shut-out innings. He did walk four, but he was really good. On the offensive side, we were pretty good. In the 5th, Nick Hundley walked. CY sacrificed him over. Will Venable hit a ball to second. The 2nd baseman was not able to make a play, and Hundley hustled all the way home. The first pitch to the next batter, Edgar Gonzalez, was hit to left for a homer. We now had a 3-0 lead. In the 7th, something bizarrely funny happened. With two outs, Chris came to the plate. On the first pitch, he hit a homer to the Padres bullpen, his first career. I was laughing so hard!! He put a really good swing on it, and he gave us a 4-0 lead. It was so funny to see him run around the bases. It was also funny to see Mike Adams warming up in the bullpen, and his reaction. It was a great moment, and it made me feel like we were going to win the game. We added two more runs in the 8th with singles by Adrian and Chase Headley. Adams did give up a run, but Clay Hensley finished out the game strong. And so, we have won the series! CY got the win. The three pitchers gave up 6 walks, which is half of last night’s total, but still pretty bad. Venable and Giles had triples. It was a feel-good game, and hopefully we can get the sweep tomorrow. Cha Sueng Baek…GO PADRES!!
