Let's see if Muhammod Ali's clubhouse visit did anything to motivate the team. If the Padres lose this game, I will consider it a direct insult to the great pugilist.
In other news a dog "threw" out the first pitch and peed on the mound. That reminds me of the time a dog snuck into the our dug out at Granite Hills High School during an SDABL baseball game and peed on one of our bats. As gross as it was, I think it brought our hitters good luck. So today I'm predicting a pitchers duel.
Gwynn 8, Eckstein 4, Gonzalez 3, Headley 5, Blanks 7, Venable 9, Hundley 2, Cabrera 6, Correia 1
