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 (37-49) scored more runs than the Philadelphia Phillies (28-57) in the first of three games at Citizen’s Bank Park last night, 4-3.
Clayton Richard (5-8, 4.66) allowed one run on five hits and a walk with two strikeouts in six innings before the game was delayed an hour and 34 minutes by rain in the middle of the seventh inning. Tommy Joseph hit a solo home run in the fourth inning. Cameron Rupp scored on a groundout by Daniel Nava and Freddy Galvis‘ single drove in Nick Williams in the seventh inning.
Nick Pivetta (2-4, 4.73) gave up three runs on five hits and no walks while striking out nine in seven innings. Jose Pirela hit a solo home run in the first inning. Austin Hedges hit two solo home runs — in the third and fifth innings — and drove in Cory Spangenberg with the go-ahead run in the ninth inning with a sacrifice fly.
