how can the game NOT be televised — especially today… i found myself “watching” the game on espn’s gamecast (which is cool… but c’mon!)
this was a sik game… padres rolled into phoenix with a 9-game win streak
pads found themselves down early 5-0 after three… but an 8th inning rally tied it up… so they go to extra innings (AGAIN) — this doesn’t go too long though thanks to a chase headley homer in the tenth, followed by yet another heath bell save
check out this chart — it’s a win probability chart from fangraphs
this is a different team — look at the 7th/8th inning… padres just didn’t give up!
i have no idea what that bottom portion is — the graph going from zero to five… maybe someone could help me out with that part
then before today’s game, check out this stat — padres pitchers’ (both starters and relievers) have an amazing ERA of 1.64!
was that too much? probably — i’m no sports blogger… nor do i claim to be one
