Man, that game had it all! The Pads got off to an early 4-0 lead in the second, aided by Carlos Quentin's fourth home run in his sixth game with the team. It should have been 5-0 as the blue blew a call at third giving the Padres runners on first and second instead of loaded with one out. San Francisco scored once in the third, thrice in the sixth to tie it and one in the seventh to go ahead 5-4. They stole another run on a terrible call; this time at first base. Just a bad day in general for the whole crew, I guess. Quentin wasn't shook so he lined an eighth inning pitch from Jeremy Affeldt 420 feet to dead central and tied things up upon touching his tenth total base of the day. After fresh-off-the-DL Huston Street worked himself in and out of a jam, The Aristocrat sprung into action. Logan drilled the second pitch into the second deck for his first Major League home run and that's all she wrote. Forsythe had already made a play for the ages an inning earlier, laying out farrrrr to his left behind first baseman Yonder Alonso and somehow gunning down the runner headed to third. Best game of the year so far? I think so.
From An Unlikely Source! is just another nerdy baseball card blog. I collect a handful of players but my main focus is Joey Cora cards. You have too many of them and I'd be glad to help you out with that.
