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 (12-17) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (17-11), 11-3, last night at Petco Park.
Jered Weaver (0-3, 5.51) gave up ten runs (five earned) on ten hits and no walks in four innings while striking out two.
Yeah, you read that right. Ten hits and ten runs, with just five of those earned. Weaver gonna weave, man.
Charlie Blackmon led off the game with a double and scored on a single by DJ LeMahieu, who took second base on the throw from Hunter Renfroe. Nolan Arenado doubled, scoring LeMahieu, and Ian Desmond hit a two-run home run.
In the fourth inning, Dustin Garneau and Antonio Senzatela got on base and Blackmon hit a ball to first base that Wil Myers couldn’t handle, allowing two runs to score and Blackmon to get to third base on Renfroe’s throw. Blackmon scored on an Arenado sacrifice fly.
Desmond led off the fifth inning with his second home run of the night. Gerardo Parra reached on a throwing error by Ryan Schimpf, took third base on a single by Alexi Amarista, and scored on a Garneau single. Amarista later scored on a LeMahieu single.
In the seventh inning, Blackmon drove in Garneau with a double.
Senzatela (4-1, 2.84) pitched six innings, surrendering three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Cory Spangenberg scored on a Yangervis Solarte sacrifice double play (I don’t know, but it happened) in the first inning. Erick Aybar hit a solo home run and Jabari Blash scored on a Myers double in the fifth inning.
This afternoon’s series finale pits Luis Perdomo (0-0, 4.96) against Kyle Freeland (3-1, 2.93) starting at 12:40pm PDT.
