Both benches cleared after Giants starter Madison Bumgarner threw a pitch behind Padres' first baseman Jesus Guzman in the second inning of their game Wednesday.
Bumgarner's first pitch to Guzman sailed about belt-high, apparently in response to Guzman's excessive celebration after hitting a pinch-hit home run Tuesday night.
Guzman jumped out of the way and then took several steps toward Bumgarner with his bat pointed at the pitcher. Giants catcher Buster Posey and plate umpire Tony Randazzo immediately stepped in front of Guzman.
Bumgarner walked toward home plate as players and coaches from both sides gathered around the area between home plate and the mound. Guzman was restrained along the first base line as order was restored and both teams warned. No one was ejected and no punches were thrown.
Guzman flied out to the warning track in left field.

Will Venable is not somebody who you expected to hear being compared to Ozzie Smith, but the play he pulled off to save the Padres in the 12th inning of Monday night's victory over the Giants is incredible enough to make the Wizard of Oz blush.
This catch is as do-or-die as they come: if Venable doesn't rob Juan Perez right here, the game is over. Instead, the Padres live...
San Diego Padre left handed pitcher Eric Stults had been a fringe starter in the major leagues for about a decade before the Padres gave him a real opportunity. Stults has responded by providing a 3.08 ERA in his time in San Diego across 28 starts. I became a fan of Stults’ after he made Braves hitters look stupid by fanning 3, and giving up just one run in 7.2 innings in Atlanta...

It would have been impossible to get everyone back together for a makeup games from my birthday rainout, so my family and I used some of the tickets to go ay-yo at Hunter Pence. Well, that was the goal, but we were too far up and the usual ay-yo-ers weren't all there and the ones who were weren't very loud.
I didn't take many pictures. It was a 4pm start and we couldn...
