Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (55-69) scored fewer runs than the Washington Nationals (74-48), 4-1, in the finale of their four-game series yesterday.
Dinelson Lamet (7-5, 4.84) allowed three runs on three hits and six walks while striking out eight in four and a third innings. Gio Gonzalez scored on a sacrifice fly by Daniel Murphy in the third inning. In the fifth inning, Murphy singled to drive in Alejandro De Aza and scored on Adam Lind‘s double. Edwin Johnson scored on a bases-loaded fielder’s choice by Howie Kendrick in the eighth inning.
Gonzalez (12-5, 2.39) gave up one unearned run in five and two-thirds innings on five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts. Jabari Blash scored on when Wil Myers reached on an error in the first inning.
