Padres defeat Diamondbacks 8-5

Clayton Richard really tried not to win tonight. He was leaving stuff out over the plate. Runners were scoring. He was kinda like, "I just want to be me! LET ME BE!" But the Padres are not here to cater to losers. They are here to win and that's pretty much what they did.

Play of the game has to be Anthony Keith Gwynn Jr's inside-the-park home run. D-Back's left fielder Rusty Ryal made a valiant diving effort for a shot along the left field line... and missed. And pretty much if an outfielder misses a ball that gets to the wall and there's nobody backing it up, Tony Gwynn is going to f_ckin' infinity and beyond.

Padres go for the sweep tomorrow.

Oh P.S. Remember like just before the All-Star Break how Rockies and Dodgers fans were like, "Well, it was a nice run Padres, but we're gonna go ahead an pass you in the second half of the season now. Really, you have no chance."

Rockies last three games: L, L, L. Dodgers last three: L, L, L. I like to substitute the commas for "O"s when I read that line.
