Game 17, Thread 2: Same old song and dance

Kids, there are moments in life when you realize you can't judge a ball game by its first inning.  Last night, Uncle Leake gave up a bunch of hits and a home run and we thought the Dodgers would crush him.  He went on to win that game.  And tonight, your Uncle Bronson cruised through the first inning, retiring the Padres in order on only 13 pitches.  Of course, he then gave up six runs and left with the bases loaded in the fourth inning and no outs.  [sad blue trombone]

But it turns out everything happens for a reason...
