Padres get lucky again, beat Giants by like a billion runs

When you win the one run games, that's lucky. When you win by like 6 runs, some consider that a blowout, but in the case of the Padres, it's a lucky blowout.

Let's be honest. If the Padres had to play the Giants like a million times, the Giants very well might win 600,000 times. That's science. The Padres absolutely owning the Giants in 2010? That's luck.

When Jonathan Sanchez made the prediction that the Giants would sweep the weekend series, take first place, and never look back... He was using science and mathematics to come up with that information. And I admit it. He was probably right. Scientifically, his prediction should have come through, but instead the only game the Giants pulled out was the extra innings affair that saw like a million Padres baserunners stranded in, what some mistakenly thought was an unlucky day, but was probably more indicative of how the series should've turned out.

Except it didn't. And now the Giants get to go to Philadelphia, St. Louis and then host the Reds.

Jonathan Sanchez predicts the Giants will win all 9 games and be in first place by September.

You know what I predicted before the season got started? Best. Season. Ever. (Jonny Dub begged to differ)
