THAT’S MY BOY!!! THAT’S MY BABY!!! Yes, the hero of yesterday’s game was no other than my beautiful Macedonian, KOOOOOOOOOOZ!!

Aw man, it was a great, great game. We played so well! We played like I know we’re capable of playing.

Josh Geer threw six innings, allowing three runs with no walks and six strikeouts. He was pretty sharp.

He allowed one run in the top of the first, but his boys picked him right up in the bottom of the inning.

Tony Gwynn singled and David Eckstein doubled him home to tie the game. Brian Giles flew out and sent Eck to third. Then Adrian Gonzalez singled him in. Yay!

In the fourth, Franklin Guiterrez homered, tying the game. In the top of the sixth, he homered again, giving Seattle the lead. 

But in the bottom of the sixth, Adrian finally broke out of his homerless slump to hit his 23rd home run of the season. It was a blast, man. Dead center, gone. 

The game stayed tied. Greg Burke and Edward Mujica threw a scoreless inning each. Then Heath Bell threw two innings, the ninth and the 10th. 

On to the tenth. David Eckstein grounded out and Brian Giles flew out. But then Adrian doubled for my boy Kouz. 

Two outs, tenth inning, Kouz was 0-for-4 with three strikeouts so far in the game. He worked the count to 3-1 before breaking his bat and sending a pitch to left field. Adrian chugged around third and home, and scored the winning run.

It was an incredible game. We played so well! The pitching was amazing, and the hitters never gave up. We had nine hits.

Adrian went 4-for-4, which was huge for him. He’s been struggling a lot lately because guys just won’t pitch to him. But yesterday he had a home run, a double, and two singles. He drove in two runs, and scored two, including the winning run. What a great day for Adrian!!

David Eckstein had three hits and an RBI, which was great.

Kouz had that one hit, and that was the one that really mattered. He’s been incrediblely hot lately. What a great way to end the series! I can’t tell you how excited I am for my boy. Man, I love this guy!!!  

Great great great game. That’s all I can say. We played hard, we didn’t give up, and we pulled out with a win. Great effort by my boys, and hopefully that momentum can carry into the next series.

We are playing the A’s for three this weekend. It’s going to be very interesting to see if we can play like we did yesterday. Wade LeBlanc will be starting tonight. I remember his starts from last year. Let’s just say that they weren’t the greatest starts ever. He just needs to keep us in the ballgame, and the offense will take care of the rest.

    I knew you were going to be so happy as soon as he got the game winning hit (: What a great game yesterday! We have to continue playing like this especially right now since it’s interleague time. I was very pleased with Eck as well. Go Padres!! Let’s beat those A’s!

    Aren’t walk-offs the best!?
    Are you going to be to any of the games with the Dodgers? I was thinking of not going since I was there for the first 3(or was it 4) games of the season but now I am thinking that maybe I will go afterall.
