Padres take beat the Braves in the lucky 13th


It took 13 innings, but the Padres finally managed to muster up enough offense to beat the Atlanta Braves tonight. Most teams are able to score enough runs to decide a game well within the allotted nine innings, but the Padres love to take their time when it comes to winning games. Lollygaggers.

They lollgygag to first base. They lollygag around the bases. They lollygag diving after line shots into the outfield before lollygagging a throw to double off a lollygagger late getting back to the bag.

Incidentally, did you see that play? Chris Denorfia is a man. He's got a pair of testicles and probably lots of hair in his armpits.

Don't hate, but I got to sit right near Philip Rivers and Jacob Hester tonight. They were very polite. I asked Rivers how he managed to go out on a school night, what with having a basketball team full of kids at home. He said Hester's wife runs her house like a day care so he could have GNO. They're just normal dudes too. They do GNO just like we do once a month.

Padres go for series victory tomorrow. Have we turned the corner? Signs point to yes.

GO PADRES!!!
