Kyle Blanks capped one of the Padres' greatest weeks ever at Petco Sunday afternoon with a tie-breaking three-run, eighth-inning homer that gave the hosts a 4-1 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The mood in the clubhouse was euphoric. For the first time since the end of the 90-72 season of 2010, the Padres are on the plus side of .500. Back-to-back series sweeps of division leaders Atlanta and Arizona raised the Padres overall record since April 24 to 30-19 – and a more impressive 21-7 at home. The Padres are within two games of the National League West lead.
