And there goes the streak of consecutive series' won by the Padres. It was fun while it lasted. Against the Rockies, the offense was voted the Series MVP over the pitching with 58% of the vote. This series was a little different.

For this series, there was one good game and two not so good ones. There was also some good players and a few not so good ones. When it came down to it, I think only 1 player was an MVPish performer.
He is really turning it around right now. In the last 10 games, he's had 4 home runs and raised his batting average from .242 to .256. In the series against the Giants, he went 3 for 8 with a home run and 2 RBI.
If I'm wrong about naming Kemp the MVPish player, let me know in the comments.
With an actual name.
Not just saying "no".
Because that's not helpful.
