Padres 5 – Phils 4
Philly fans can take their brooms home because there will not be a sweep today! Why is that actually exciting to me to avoid a sweep? Desperate times!
The Padres scored some runs off of Cliff Lee to get Aaron Harang his 9th win on the season. Harang pitched 6 and gave up 4 runs but was able to get the game to the bullpen with the lead. Qualls, Adams and Bell took care of the rest.
Norf again will be on the highlight reels tonight. In the top of the 2nd inning, Cliff Lee lobbed a pickoff throw to first base and Norf hustled in from third base to steal home and to make it a 3-1 score.
We beat the best team in baseball and that makes me smile. Tomorrow we get to face the snakes.
