Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (73-84) scored fewer runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (67-90), 4-3, last night in the first game of the final home series of the 2015 season.
Tyson Ross (10-12, 3.26) allowed four runs in six innings on six hits and three walks, while striking out seven. Scooter Gennett led off the game with a single and later scored on a single by Adam Lind. A Jean Segura then scored Lind two batter later in the first inning. Segura hit a towering two-run home run into the second deck of the Western Metal Building in the sixth inning.
Jorge Lopez (1-0, 5.40), making his first Major League start, pitched five innings and gave up three runs on eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts. In the third inning, an RBI single from Matt Kemp to score Yangervis Solarte put the Padres on the board. The RBI was Kemp’s 100th of 2015. Kemp would later come out of the game because of a sore right hand. Cory Spangenberg led off the fourth inning with a triple and later scored on Ross’ single. Wil Myers added the last run in that same inning, knocking in Austin Hedges.
