The Padres finally win a game

Sep 7, 2010, 8:47 AM EDT

And not only do they win a game: they debunk a conspiracy theory!

Yesterday a reader sent me an email noting that the Padres’ ten-game losing streak coincided perfectly with announcer Dick Enberg’s absence to cover the U.S. Open. I was tempted to dismiss this theory until I realized that I have never been in the same room as Dick Enberg and I had never won a major league baseball game either. Coincidence? Doubtful.

Thankfully, however, Padres fans can abandon their plans to kidnap Enberg and bring him back to California, because the Padres finally won a game without him. They beat the Dodgers 4-2, thanks in part to Nick Hundley, who was 2-for-3 with a solo home run and two RBI. Hundley, by the way, can’t be blamed for the streak. He’s 12 for 38 with two homers and seven RBI over his last 12 games.

Now it gets fun, though: two more against the Dodgers and than four (4)(IV) games against the Giants.  All of which they’ll have to face without Dick Enberg. Oh, my!

    Get the old crazy SOB away from the tennis courts!

    I just think it’s cool that Enberg started doing local play by play.

    Not that this has much to do with anything – although of course what happens to the Padres doesn’t feel like it has much to do with anything either to us sunrise-siders – but the San Diego area produces more two headed California kingsnakes than any other area on the sunset side. Really. You could look it up.
