Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during a Sunday afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (19-26) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (22-23), 9-5, in a game that took seventeen innings, yesterday at Petco Park.
Colin Rea (3-2, 4.47) and Kenta Maeda (3-3, 3.29) both pitched five innings. Rea gave up three runs on three hits and two walks with three strikeouts. Maeda surrendered four runs on four hits and a walk, striking out five. Russ Stripling (2-3, 4.53) was awarded the win after pitching the last three innings for the Dodgers. Luis Perdomo (1-1, 9.15) got the loss after pitching the last five innings for the Padres.
In the Padres’ half of the fifth inning, Melvin Upton Jr. scored on a Christian Bethancourt single. Later in the inning, Wil Myers hit a bases loaded triple to bring Alexi Amarista, Rea, and Jon Jay across the plate. In the eighth inning, Upton Jr. hit a triple to score Myers and tie the ballgame at five.
In the sixth inning, a single by Corey Seager scored Enrique Hernandez for the Dodgers’ first run. A wild pitch from Kevin Quackenbush allowed Howie Kendrick to score. And an RBI single by Adrian Gonzalez brought Seager home. In the seventh inning, Justin Turner hit a solo home run off Ryan Buchter. In the eighth inning, Brandon Maurer gave up a leadoff home run to Kendrick. In the seventeenth inning, a single by Yasiel Puig with the bases loaded and one out scored Kendrick and Gonzalez. Puig then stole second base and Perdomo threw a wild pitch that allowed Joc Pederson to score and Puig to get to third base. Carl Crawford ground into a force out that scored Puig.
