Padres v. Dodgers: National League Championship Preview?

This last weekend's games between the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers was a great baseball series, with pitching duels, a blowout, and a slugfest that ended historically with 5 homeruns by the Dodgers over the 9th and 10th innings. For this Padres fan last night's game was painful to watch. The final two innings of the game were the most unbelievable baseball I've ever seen and I hope never to see its like again. But as Josh Barfield said, "We split the series, and they're a half-game ahead. We can pick up that half-game, no problem." (Here.) As Neil Young once sang, "Tonight's the night."

The two teams don't face each other again in the regular season this year. But both teams have a good chance of making the playoffs and might face each other in round two of the National League playoffs. This Padres fan hopes so. That would be one heck of a playoff series.
