The punchless Padres offense just needed to get deep into the Mets bullpen to come alive.
So there we were Mets leading 1-0 in the bottom of the 9th inning. Anthony Gwynn steals second base with no outs. Matt Stairs and Jerry Hairston strike out which leaves David Eckstein with 2 outs and 2 strikes. What does he do? He pops the clutch! Singles up the middle! Tie ball game! Stop hating and VOTE HIM AN ALL STAR!
In the bottom of the 11th, Anthony Gwynn hits a double. The Gwynn child is coming alive. Then Jon Garland comes in as a pinch hitter and bunts into a fielders choice where they tag Gwynn diving head first into third. Luckily Hairston singles to centerfield. David Eckstein comes to plate again with a chance to win the game but is hit by a pitch.
This is where Adrian Gonzalez comes in with the bases full of Padres. WALK OFF GRAND SLAM! OMG, dudes... OH EMM GEE!
Padres remain in first place one game ahead of the Dodgers!
