I was kind of hoping someone else would write the recap. I was at the beach for the first 7 innings.

I never know how to approach these recaps. I've noticed in the last few weeks that I've asked myself the same question, "How would I tell Jonny Dub about the game?" He gave up on the Padres and Cox Cable at the beginning of the season opting to go with the cheaper and more functional AT&T Uverse. While some people are so desperate for Padres coverage they're willing to march on Petco Park next Sunday (more on that later) he gives it away for a $60 savings. My Cox bill is insane, but I don't have any option, unless I just get rid of it.

Anyway, there were 7 errors in the game 5 of which belonged to the Dodgers. Jerry Hairston Jr. was main culprit with 2 in the same inning, both on bad throws from third. The Padres took advantage, scored runs and fortunately for me I saw the majority of the scoring because it came late with the Padres driving in 6 of their 7 runs in the late innings.

With 2 outs in the 7th Cameron Maybin reached first on JHJ's throwing error. Everth Cabrera then singled. Then John Baker walked to load the bases. That's when JHJ's second throwing error on Grandal's grounder allowed the Padres to take the lead with Maybin and Cabrera coming home.

In the 8th Chase Headley hit his 10th homer run, his 5th against the Dodgers this season.

In the 9th the Padres piled on. Kotsay doubled off the wall, a ball that Tony Gwynn Jr. probably should have caught. Another fielding error allowed Alexi Amarista to get to first. Quentin hit a sac fly to score the Padres final run.

That's pretty much how the game went Jon, the Padres have taken the series.
