Padres fight off the challenge, go into the break alone in first place

Another crazy game. Another test. ANOTHER WIN!!!

With the win, the Padres get to the All-Star Break alone in first place. We are bad at sharing. NO SHARING. MY FIRST PLACE. MINE.

I can't wait for the second half of the season. It's been a battle so far this year and all signs point to the fight continuing through the rest of the year. I want more pitching and defense.

I think the best of it was the extreme hush that fell over the crowd after Heath Bell got the final out in the ninth. It was almost like the opposite of noise, which I guess is quiet.

Padres put up a bunch of hits to get the win. The Amazing Hairston Brothers had 7 hits, a couple of RBIs and 3 runs between them. Aaron Cunningham had himself a couple of doubles. I like the Sneaky Pig nickname. Who came up with that one? So good.

In not good news, Mike Adams strained an oblique during the 8th. Get well soon, Mike.
