Entering Friday night's game against the Rockies, the Padres still had a chance to finish 2013 with a non-losing record.
All they had to do was go 19-4 down the stretch and they'd end up with an 81-81 mark. No problem, right?
If they keep doing what they did against Colorado, it's possible. The Padres got their 8th walk-off win of the season with a 4-3 victory over the Rockies.
It was tied at two in the top of the 9th inning when Huston Street gave up a solo home run to Todd Helton.
Chase Headley returned the favor with a leadoff home run of his own in the bottom half, and Jesus Guzman won it with a pinch-hit single to score Kyle Blanks.
In the first inning, Will Venable hit his 21st homer of the year, a solo shot.
The Padres can go ahead and win the series on Saturday. Tyson Ross takes the mound against Tyler Chatwood.
