This one was a little tough, so you'll be voting for a duo this series. Matt Kemp and Cory Spangenberg were at the head of the offense for the series. Spangenberg went 5 for 13 in the series with 2 doubles and a triple. Matt Kemp was the big bat against the Rangers with 4 hits including 2 doubles and a home run while compiling 5 RBI.

The other combo were the two best starters in the series, Tyson Ross and Ian Kennedy. Both starters gave the Padres 7 very strong innings. Ross got the sole win in the series with his performance in Game 1 which included giving up only 3 hits and recording 7 strikeouts. Kennedy pitched in Game 3 and lost his win due to the bullpen. Kennedy's 12 strikeouts tied his career high.

So, the vote is yours. Which combo was the Series MVP?
