    The Padres got 35 outs on Friday night at Petco Park. In those 35 outs, they did not have a single extra-base hit against the Dodgers.

    Turns out, it was singles night in the East Village, and that was just fine.

    Yasmani Grandal's 12th inning, bases loaded, 2 out single off former Padre Kevin Correia drove in Yangervis Solarte with the game-winning run.

    When you play as many close games as the Padres do, you're going to win a lot of games in your last at-bat Since 2005, the Padres have 86 walk-off wins, the most in baseball over that time (one more than the Cincinnati Reds).

    Padres starting pitcher Andrew Cashner, making his second start since coming off the disabled list, struck out eight Dodgers hitters and allowed one run in 6.0 innings.
