Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (10-9) scored less runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (11-6) last night, 11-8, and it wasn’t even that close. Ian Kennedy (0-1, 10.80) was hit hard and hit early, lasting just four and a third innings [which was probably two innings more than he should have been in there] giving up eight runs on eight hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Andre Ethier hit two home runs off of Kennedy. Adrian Gonzalez and Howie Kendrick did too. Juan Uribe hit one off of Chris Rearick, who finished the fifth inning for Kennedy.
Brandon McCarthy (3-0, 5.87) pitched five innings, surrendering six runs on six hits and a walk with four strikeouts before leaving with what was later reported as tightness in his right elbow. Wil Myers led off the bottom of the first inning with his third home run. Justin Upton hit two home runs off of McCarthy.
