Padres take series, win 5-4. Everybody Loves Rays' Mound

Does that title make any sense?  Is there anyway to make it make sense?  Probably not.

I do not want to trade away anybody on this team for a mythical "big bat".  If we keep this team together they can keep winning.  I believe that.

Another great game by our Padres.  Home runs by Adrian Gonzalez, Will Venable and Chase Headley put 4 of the 5 runs on the board.  Nick Hundley gunned down another base runner. Heath Bell made himself a save. 

The best play of the game though was Aaron Cunningham's risky dive.

"I was almost begging him not to dive," Headley said. "I didn't think he had a chance."

I got this feeling while watching the recap today that we will be talking about the 2010 season years from now.
