Padres make miraculous comeback only to lose on walk off homer

Clayton Richard had an off day, making one of his worst starts, but the Padres offense picked him up with a late 3 run rally. I thought for sure the Padres were going to play the part of the Team of Destiny again when Salazar's speed forced an error that brought in the tying run.

With the score tied 5-5, Third Base Coach Glenn Hoffman sent Jerry Hairston Jr. for the go ahead run but he was thrown out at the plate. I think I would have sent him too, but I'm crasy, he was out by a mile on a perfect throw.

In the bottom of the 9th Zimmerman hit a walk off homer to dead center off Luke Gregerson.

Tomorrow we get win number 50. It's decided.
