Giants beat Padres 4-3 to avoid sweep. A Haiku.

Denis Poroy

The Padres came into Sunday looking for their first series sweep of the season. The rival Giants stood in their way.

Erlin took the hill

Came out a bit wild and off

Posey took one deep

Cabby's leadoff hit

Spoils any repeat no-no

For Tim Lincecum

Wildness plagues Erlin

Resulting jam ends with runs

Down four after two.

Padres would strike back

Bases got loaded in third

Headley hit scored two

Replay stopped rally

X called safe at home then out

Could have been 3 runs

Erlin settled in

Giants shut down for next 4 frames

No walks and no hits

With the Giants held

The Pads could get a run back

Hundley blast did that

Now game was close late

Home team was showing some fight

But was sweep in cards?

Looked iffy in 8th

Vincent's offerings flew deep

Posey got Petco'd

And a Blanco fly

Made Nady faceplant the wall

No worries ball caught

'Pen let in no runs

From inning 6 through frame 9

Torres, Vicent, Stauff

Pads needed their bats

In the 9th facing Romo

Work needed doin'

Headley drew a walk

Got to second on wild pitch

But stranded he was

Padres got no sweep

This one barely got away

Just get 'em next time.
