Padres sweep Dodgers; take 2 game lead into Giants series

Hey so you probably already know by now but the Padres shut out the Dodgers last night to complete the sweep.  They seem back in their groove don't they?

Corey Luebke earned his first win by pitching six scoreless innings.  As Dex might say "he was amaze!"

The Pads had a big 6th inning.  Will Venable dropped a bloop single behind the short stop.  Everth Cabrera hit a bunt single. David Eckstein hit a bunt single.  Then Luis Durango inside outted a pitch to start the scoring.  Chase Headley reached on a fielders choice and then Adrian Gonzalez hit a sac fly to score.

There was episode later in the game when Will Venable was called out for leaving the base line even though he never stepped to the side only ducking down to avoid the tag.  It was a horrible call that cost the Padres a run, but at least it didn't affect the outcome of the game.

This is a lame game recap, but my morning sucked so it's all you get.
