Padres hammer Diamondbacks in 9-3 win

I can't explain to you happy I get when we build on our division lead.  I love watching the rest of the teams slowly disappear into the horizon.

Let's see what happened tonight?  Miguel Tejada crushed a 2 run homer into the Padres bullpen.  David Eckstein got on base.  Adrian Gonzalez hit his 156th homer to tie him with Nevin on the club's all time list.  Wade LeBlanc pitched well except to Stephen Drew.  I guess that's about it.

Oh one other thing.  Unlike most baseball fans I enjoy a fan running on the field occasionally.  I like the futility of it.  They know that once they step on the field that they will eventually be caught and thrown in jail, but they do it anyway to stick it to the man.  They're rebels without a cause.  It's when they have a cause and try to preach a political message that I get pissed.  Run your political messages back to Arizona and get away from our ballpark!

Anyways...I need to start thinking of excuses to get out of work early tomorrow for Throwback Thursday. 

Go Padres!
