I was intermittently following tonight's Giants-Padres game. I figured San Francisco was due for a win -- I mean, they were 1-6 coming in -- and thus not surprised to see them go up 6-1. Heading into the ninth, the lead had shrunk to 6-3. Still, I was optimistic. But then Armando Benitez served up one of his patented home-run balls and it was suddenly 6-5. I prepared myself to feel very dark indeed. Luckily, though, he got the final out. All we need now are four more wins in a row and we'll have .500 winning percentage. Word!
