Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub. And then Bud Black pinch-hits for Yasmani Grandal in the seventh inning with Cameron Maybin just so Maybin can not get the bunt down on the first two pitches and then fly out to shallow center on the third. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (21-25) lost last night to the visiting Minnesota Twins (22-21) by a score of 5-3. Overall, it was a game filled with questionable strategy from Bud Black and poor performances at the plate and in the field from the Friars.
Ian Kennedy (2-6, 3.79) started for the Padres, pitching 6 2/3 innings giving up 4 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks with 6 strikeouts, and driving in a run at the plate. Former Padre Kevin Correia (2-5, 6.52) started for Minnesota, lasting 6 innings while giving up 3 runs on 4 hits and a walk with 6 strikeouts.
