Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening at the pub, yelling at the TV and tweeting mean things just because you feel like it. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (44-52) scored fewer runs than the Miami Marlins (40-55), 4-0, in the first of four games at Petco Park.
Tyson Ross (6-8, 3.45) gave up four runs (three earned) in five and two-thirds innings, allowing eight hits and no walks with eight strikeouts. Ross was dominant for the first five innings, then the defense behind him imploded in the sixth inning. After a wild pitch by Ross allowed Martin Prado to score from third base, Justin Bour singled to knock in Christian Yelich. Casey McGehee singled, then J.T. Realmuto singled to left field, scoring Bour. Realmuto then stole second, the throw from Austin Hedges was off, and McGehee scored after Alexi Amarista threw the ball away trying get McGehee at home.
Tom Koehler (8-6, 3.16) pitched seven shutout innings for the Marlins, giving up just three hits and four walks with seven strikeouts.
