Padres fail to score with bases loaded in the 9th; Lose to Cubs 0-1

The Padres have now been held scoreless for the last 16 innings.  Nick Hundley flew out to left with the bases loaded to end the what could have been a gutsy comeback win.  If you're not frustrated then you probably weren't following the game.

The Padres were losing 0-1 with two outs in the bottom of the 9th.  Yorvit Torreablba hustles his ass off, diving head first into first base trying create a spark that could ignite a comeback victory.  He's safe with an infield single.  Buddy Black replaces Torrealba at first with the speedy Everth Cabrera who promptly steals second on a very close play.  Chase Headley then is awarded first base when the umpire says he was hit by the pitch.  The ball definitely didn't hit his front foot but might have grazed his back shin.  In any case the Padres have two men on with Anthony Gwynn Jr. at the plate.  Gwynn draws a walk loading the bases. 

Nick Hundley is at the plate, he takes the first pitch for a ball.  The crowd is so into the game.  They believe!  Hundley then chops what would have been the second ball foul.  Nobody understands why he swung, not even Hundley.  Okay, we all make mistakes, Nick still has a chance.  Then he flies out to left, sucking the life out of the ballpark.

Since then this is what I've been up to:

My anger crawled inside a cocoon of frustration where it has now hatched into fluttering depression. 

See you tomorrow.  Go Padres.
