Padres beat Giants' Sanchez for third time; take 3.5 game lead

That was a crasy game.  Padres were caught in run downs three times. Jerry Hairston Jr. was involved in two of them.  Clayton Richard was sketchy early on, bouncing pitches and balls to third base. Then the strangest play was Scott Hairston being called out for interfering with the second basemen on a ball deflected off the pitcher.  Bud Black argued for about 10 minutes and decided to officially protest the game.

I'm listening to the XX 1090 Postgame Show and Coach Kentera is saying that the Umpire Case Book says that if a ball is deflected off the pitcher and the base runner interferes with the infielder then the runner is out.  So the protest would likely have been denied.

Turns out it didn't matter since the Padres were able to score the deciding run in the 6th inning on a great slide by Ryan LudwickHeath Bell saved the game and proved once and for all that Jonathan Sanchez is a sh_tty psychic.

Good win.  I'm off to St. Louis and Chicago tomorrow morning.  Catch you on the flip side.
