Drury, Nola homer in big rally, Padres beat Giants 13-7

SAN DIEGO (AP) — This is the team the San Diego Padres envisioned having when they acquired Juan Soto, Josh Bell and Drury at last week’s trade deadline. Yes, there was a five-game losing streak, including losing three games at the rival Los Angeles Dodgers last weekend and a flummoxing 26-inning scoreless streak. But when they broke out of the slump, the Padres did it impressively, scoring 20 runs in consecutive wins against the San Francisco Giants. Brandon Drury hit a go-ahead, three-run home run in the sixth and Austin Nola’s two-run homer capped a seven-run rally — all with two outs — that carried the Padres to a wild 13-7 win against the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday. The Padres fell behind 4-0, surged ahead 6-4 after Manny Machado’s two-run double ignited a six-run rally in the third and then fell behind 7-6 in the sixth. But the Padres came through with another big rally in the bottom of the sixth, the second time they batted around in the game.

Why The Magic Theatre Likes To Party

An iconic SF theatre finds its way back by leveraging its greatest asset — people. At the risk of sounding like a complete egghead, let me start by saying I have a theory about parties. Yes — I’d rather write about a party than attend one. And if I were to attend one, I’d likely help decorate the wall. I can’t drink (anymore). I can’t dance (never could). I’d happily share my thoughts with anyone at the party willing to hear them. But since I’m not attending this party — at the Magic Theatre tomorrow night — let me share my pet theory here.
