Padres defeat Braves, even up the series

Dick had a great stat that the Padres were 33-7 going into tonight's game when they successfully execute a stolen base. Sure enough, bases are stolen this game and the Padres come back behind 4-2 to win 6-4. SOOOOO terrific.

The Padres were behind in the late innings. They were facing one of the (other) premier teams in the major leagues. They were facing the team with the best home record in the NL. You look at all that and see that you'd still have a lead in the division and a lesser team might've just coughed up this series and written it off. Rested for some other day.

Not this team. Not this season. This is the best season ever.

GO PADRES!!!
