Nasty, the collision between Beltran and Cameron, no?

Reading about it in the NYTimes sports page we discover the Cameron was an ex center fielder playing right and thus has a bit of an excuse for not backing off, but its Beltran's ball all the way.

Cameron got a busted nose and a busted cheek. Basically, a busted face. And apparently there was a lot of blood on the field. Yuk, who wants to play center with a pool of blood on the field.

But we won the game, a close game too and a great pitching performance by the Woodman, Trevor gets number 30, and Otska hits Floyd in the eighth. Floyd said it was on purpose, but I doubt that.

BTW, its always interesting to follow the ball after mishaps like that. It basically died a few feet from the downed players and the Met second baseman ran an got it, holding pinch-hitter Ross to a triple. I guess he could have come home because despite the wreckage in center field, the ball is still in play.

Tonight, its the Philli's and a little cheese steak revenge would be nice and we have just the guy to cook some up, Peavy.

Philli beat us like a red-headed step child on our trip back East, but I don't think they are that good and I know our hitting has finally come round.

Series win, series win.

Go Padres!

1. Gameday and IGD at Dusksnorts is a good way to follow the game. All I need was some beer, but then again I need this gig, so I skipped the beer.

2. So Cameron goes to Mercy and Beltran gets Scripps Clinic in La Jolla (according to the NYTimes). Must be a contract thing.

3. 8 hits but only two runs. I see the LOB sneaking back into the offense.
