Padres Denorfia sets tone in victory by stealing home

Quote:
The most daring, and quite possibly the most important, play from the Padres' 5-4 victory over the Phillies on Monday was, oddly enough, hatched from just the slightest moment of hesitation on the part of outfielder Chris Denorfia.

Denorfia was standing at third base, with teammate Jason Bartlett on first, when San Diego third-base coach Glenn Hoffman slowly walked up and whispered to him that if Philadelphia pitcher Cliff Lee threw the ball to first, Denorfia might be able to steal home, with third baseman Michael Martinez playing off the bag.

"I didn't know if he was joking or not," Denorfia said.

Hoffman's response: "He always thinks I'm joking."

The joke, as it turned out, was on Lee and the Phillies, as Denorfia darted for home as Lee nonchalantly tossed the ball over to first base, executing the Padres' first straight steal of home since 1999.

"It's making something happen when we needed something to happen," said San Diego third baseman Chase Headley.

never thought the Phillies and Lee would have lost to the Padres. I guess that is why they play the games.
