Sorry I wasn’t able to get this up yesterday. It’s going to be brief today…
There was a big home run in the Braves game, but Atlanta fans probably don’t want to see that one up here (Jimmy Rollins‘ grand slam, of course). The big home run in this huge Padres/Giants series came off the bat of Adrian Gonzalez, who blasted a three-run homer in the third inning of last night’s game to put the Padres up 4-0. They would go on to win it 6-4.

Big, go-ahead shot from Rivera in the 11th inning of the game. That was not really the reason for the slow trot, though. That’s just how Rivera is (his first homer of the night came in at 25.61 seconds).
Ludwick got the party started for the Padres in the game last night, with his second-inning shot that gave the Padres the early lead. He sprinted through the trot as if he knew how important it was.
