A GIF Story: Sunday Homerunday

USA TODAY Sports

A post containing GIFs of all the Padres home runs hit today.

The Padres are going into the All Star Break fresh off a win against the Giants. If you missed it, check Wonko's recap for the full story.

In the process of dominating the Giants today, the Padres hit a season-high four home runs. It was p rad, especially after these last couple of games, to see the bats break out today, so I thought they deserved their own post.

Deno started things off. On a full count, he launched a solo homer to left field in the bottom of the first to tie up the game. It was his seventh home run of the year. It would've been good for two-runs and the lead if Evy hadn't just been picked off earlier in the at-bat.

No worries, though. The Padres took the lead, which they would never relinquish, in the bottom of the 2nd when Love Hundles hit his sixth home run of the season, a solo shot in nearly the same spot as Deno.

Four pitches later, Mr. Princeton made my wish come true and smacked a Venabomb to the Jack Daniels Whiskey Deck in right field. It was the first time the Padres hit back-to-back homers since June 7th when Q and Jeddi did it at Coors Field off Colorado reliever Rob Scahill. It was Venable's 11th homer of the year, pulling him even with Quentin for the team lead.

But that didn't last too long. Quentin hit his 12th home run of the year to pull ahead of Venable once more. It was the final home run of the day, a two-out two-run shot on the first pitch Q saw from Giants pitcher George Kontos in the 5th inning.
