Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (62-67) scored fewer runs than the Philadelphia Phillies (52-78), 4-3, at Citizens Bank Park last night.
Colin Rea (2-2, 5.95) pitched five innings, allowing all four Phillies’ runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts. In the second inning, Darnell Sweeney hit a two-run home run with no outs. Domonic Brown scored on a Freddy Galvis double in the fourth inning. Adam Morgan followed that double with an RBI-single to score Galvis.
Morgan (5-4, 4.03) pitched six innings while giving up two unearned runs on four hits and no walks with three strikeouts. In the fourth inning, Matt Kemp reached base on a throwing error by Galvis. After Justin Upton lined out and Derek Norris struck out, Yonder Alonso singled, scoring Kemp, who had stolen second base during Norris’ at-bat. Alonso ended up at second after an error by catcher Cameron Rupp. Melvin Upton Jr. then singled to plate Alonso. In the seventh inning, Jedd Gyorko added an RBI single.
