Padres take series from Rockies

I probably did more napping than watching but I somehow saw most of what one might consider the highlights.

I saw Everth Cabrera slide into home and very gently ease his toned body between home plate and catcher Jordan Pacheco like he was sliding between the silk sheets of his hotel bed. That was thanks in no small part to Jonathan Baker's single.

I saw Everth Cabrera score again on a Will Venable single. This time Pacheco wanted no part of blocking the plate, he'd had enough. Of course the ball wasn't thrown to him either.

Then to end the game Huston Street reacted with cat-like reflexes to field a ball and then underhand it to first from 40 feet away. It's still surprising to realize we have a slim, athletic closer again.

With all those highlights I think Bud Black's descriptions of those plays and his vague reasons for recent success will be our video of the day;.
