Beautiful meltdown!

Anybody else see the Bums meltdown against the Padres tonight?

Russell Branyan drew a bases-loaded walk with one out in the ninth to complete a five-run rally as the San Diego Padres stunned the Los Angeles Dodgers 6-5 Thursday night to complete a three-game sweep.

The Padres won their fifth straight and their 10th in 12 games to remain atop the NL West.

The Padres trailed 5-1 and had only four hits going into the ninth. They got five hits and four runs off Jonathan Broxton (2-2) before making their first out of the inning.

Geoff Blum started the winning rally with a leadoff single. Terrmel Sledge reached on a fielding error by first baseman Nomar Garciaparra, who fielded his grounder but had the ball pop out of his glove. Marcus Giles singled to left to load the bases, and Paul McAnulty beat out a chopper to bring in a run.

Adrian Gonzalez hit a two-run ground-rule double to right-center, Josh Bard was intentionally walked to reload the bases and Mike Cameron's single to center brought in McAnulty to tie the game.

Kevin Kouzmanoff struck out for the first out, bringing up Branyan.

Broxton faced nine batters, allowing five hits and walking two.

Best part? That lead off single happened because Jeff Kent flubbed the throw.
