Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (45-57) scored more runs than the New York Mets (47-53) in the finale of four games last night at Petco Park, 7-5.
Luis Perdomo (5-5, 4.76) allowed four runs on nine hits and two walks with three strikeouts in six and two-thirds innings. Manuel Margot hit a leadoff solo home run in the first inning. In the second inning, the Padres loaded the bases and Margot hit a double to drive in Jabari Blash, Dusty Coleman, and Luis Torrens. Coleman hit his first Major League home run, a three-run opposite field shot, in the fifth inning.
Chris Flexen (0-1, 9.00) gave up four runs (three earned) in three innings on five hits and four walks while striking out two in his Major League debut. Michael Conforto scored in the first inning on a Jay Bruce fielder’s choice. In the seventh inning, Conforto scored on Yoenis Cespedes‘ double, Jose Torres was called for a balk to bring Asdrubal Cabrera home, and Bruce hit a two-run home run.
