Two scary innings bookend Padres shutout win

If I would have told you that the Padres would record their 9th shutout against the Cardinals and that we'd only score on a Jerry Hairston Jr. home run, would you have believed me?  The crazy thing is that a lot of you are probably saying, "Actually, yeah I can see that."  This is how the Padres win, they're weird that way.

This game was bookended by two really scary innings.  In the first, Garland gave up two hits, loaded the bases and somehow didn't give up a run. He would go on to pitch 7 scoreless innings.

Then in the ninth, Heath Bell didn't have much control over his pitches and gave up a single to Albert Pujols, walked David Freese and then finally relieved the tension by recording a save.

Go Padres!
