Padres take the series, demonstrate Padres Day dominance

I think my favorite part of today's game is the winning bits along with the offense. All of that is good stuff. Here are some notes in bullet form.

  • The extreme shift doesn't work on Adrian Gonzalez. All that happens is doubles from the slowest guy on the team.
  • I still say Will Venable will hit for the cycle within the next year.
  • Jerry Hairston Jr flamboyantly leaped over first base when he couldn't beat out an infield hit today. He moves with such flamboyance.
  • Nick Hundley knows how to hit the ball pretty good.
Final note: Nobody commented on this much at the time, but I swear that a ball that bounces over the right-centerfield fence should be a ground rule triple. As long as it hits the sand after bouncing the warning track Ground rule triple. Make this happen and somebody prove to my why it shouldn't be so.

GO PADRES!!!!
