San Diego Blows. After the Braves beat the Phillies 8-7 early in the afternoon, all the Padres had to do was beat the Giants for the third consecutive day to set off chaos. CHAOS!!!!! Had the Padres won the Braves, Giants and Padres would have had identical 91-71 records setting off a three-team, two-game play-in scenario. The Giants and Padres would face off in San Diego Monday night to settle the NL West, and the loser of that game would head to Atlanta to play the Braves for the NL Wild Card on Tuesday. Never before have we had such a scenario occur.

But San Diego being San Diego, they had to lose 3-0 to the Giants. On August 25 the Padres had a commanding 6 ½ game lead in the division looking to have clinched everything. But they went on a ten-game losing streak putting the division back in play.

Moral of the story: don’t ever trust San Diego with anything.
