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 (33-48) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (55-28), 8-0, last night at Petco Park.
Dillon Overton‘s Padres debut was a forgettable one. Overton (0-1, 6.65) lasted four and two-thirds innings, giving up four runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out three. Logan Forsythe‘s first inning single to drive in Chris Taylor was all the Dodgers needed, but they didn’t stop there. Starting pitcher Rich Hill drove in Forsythe with a single in the fourth inning. Corey Seager and Justin Turner hit back-to-back solo home runs to lead off the fifth inning. In the seventh inning, Taylor hit a grand slam, the second in two nights for the Dodgers.
Hill (5-4, 4.00) shutout the Padres over seven innings, giving up four hits and a walk with eleven strikeouts. Manuel Margot was 2-for-3 with a walk. Austin Hedges and Erick Aybar each had one of the other two hits for the Padres.
