Nick Hundley Ends 16th Inning Game and Allows Me to Sleep

Nick Hundley hit a two-out home run in the bottom of the 16th inning to give the San Diego Padres a 6-5 victory over the Cincinnati Reds. And now I may sleep.

See, here in Cincinnati, it was 3:20 a.m. when the final run was scored. Thank God tomorrow is Sunday and I can sleep in.

It wasn't like I needed to watch the end of this game. But after rolling with it for all this time, you just had to keep watching. Especially once the Padres came back from being down 5-2 by scoring in the 7th and 8th and there were several times both teams had guys in scoring position.

The Reds were rolling until starter Edinson Volquez left mid-batter with back spasms in the 6th inning.

That's the thing about baseball and playoff hockey ... or any game my wife watches. You never know when you are going to be stuck with one that just keeps on going, and going, and going, and going ....
