OK... That might have been lucky. Padres beat Cubs, 1-0

Like I've said before, I'd rather be lucky and good. I'd 1 run wins 162 times a season if I could.

Jon Garland "mowed" them down. I say "mowed" with the quotation marks because it's not like his stuff really seemed especially overpowering. When you pitch to contact and get lots or ground outs, it really seems like you're just getting lucky when you increase your scoreless innings streak to 17, and you probably are.

The Giants have now lost 6 of their last 10 while the Padres have won 8 of their last 10, which gives us a nice little five game pad as we continue through these dog days of summer. I guess it's a good thing we like dogs. Lucky, I suppose.
