Once again, the Padres fall one win short of a winning series and a winning series MVP.
In Arizona, Tyson Ross was voted the series MVP with 87% of the vote.
In San Francisco, it'll go to somebody else.

This one is tough. Much, much harder to have an MVP in this series. There's a lot of buts. This guy did good, but...
So, you're voting on buts today.
Will Middlebrooks put together a nice offensive showing throughout the series, but....his error somehow led to the game getting all the way away from the Padres on Wednesday.
Alexi Amarista also had a nice series in San Francisco including a couple of RBI, but....his defense in center in Game 3 led to more runs than there should have been scored.
Points-wise, Ian Kennedy had the best game among the starters, but....he had the most undeserved Quality Start I can think of this season. Maybe there was another one, but I can't think of it.
There's also Marcos Mateo who had 2 good outings for the bullpen, but.... none of us knew he existed until last night.
The choice is yours. Vote for which "but" you feel should be this series' MVP.
