Padres pop up to Dodgers a billion times, lose 1-2

I really felt like we were one win away from finishing the Dodgers once and for all.  With yesterday's embarrassing defeat the Dodgers were almost dead... like zombies.  It reminded me of the second rule of Zombieland... Double Tap.  You've shot the zombie Dodgers once then you turned your back on them instead of shooting them once more to make sure they're really dead.  Double tap Padres... Double tap!

Let's see, what happened?  Miguel Tejada hit a solo shot to give the Padres an early lead.  Chris Denorfia dove for a ball that ended up going to the wall and scoring two runs.  I didn't hate the dive.  Well I did, but I didn't hate the effort.  Denorfia saved a third run from scoring with a beautiful throw to home.  Mat Latos pitched good enough to win, but the umpiring was complete sh_t. Pitch tracker was showing balls right down the center and they were being called balls. The Padres finally got some men on base in top of the 9th but Ryan Ludwick hit into a double play.

Some may say Ted Lilly owned the Padres bats, but I blame the Solar Tsunami. How are you supposed to hit with ionized atoms flying directly at you?

The Giants are on a 21-5 stretch right now and just beat the Rockies 10-0.  The Pads lead cut to one game.  Tomorrow is a MUST WIN GAME!
