Padres Get A Little Help From Umps and “Walk” Away With Victory

San Diego Padres 1 – Seattle Mariners 0

THREE BALLS! That is all Cameron Maybin needed to draw a walk in the fifth inning of tonight’s game. Usually it take four, but Maybin will take the gift walk. Maybin was then moved over to second after Rizzo’s at bat and the clutch hitting of AGon brought home the only run of the game. Alberto Gonzalez is good when it counts!

Cory Luebke looks like he belongs in the starting rotation with the two ballgames he has put together as a starter. Today he picked up his second victory and only gave up 2 hits in his six innings of work. The bullpen took care of the final 3 innings and Heath Bell picked up his 24th save.

Tomorrow is the rubber match to see who takes the series victory.
