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 (18-31) scored more runs than the New York Mets (19-26) at Citi Field last night, 4-3.
Dinelson Lamet (1-0, 1.80) made his Major League debut, giving up one run on three hits and two walks in five innings while striking out eight. Lucas Duda hit a solo home run in the second inning. In the eighth inning, Duda drove in Neil Walker with a single. Jose Reyes ground into a fielder’s choice in the ninth inning to score Michael Conforto.
Rafael Montero (0-4, 8.24) started in place of Jacob deGrom, who was held back because of the weather. Montero pitched just three innings, allowing three runs on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts. In the first inning, a bases loaded single by Cory Spangenberg drove in Yangervis Solarte and Matt Szczur drew a bases loaded walk scoring Wil Myers. Szczur hit an RBI single to score Hunter Renfroe in the third inning. Spangenberg drove in Allen Cordoba with a double in the ninth inning.
The Padres head to Washington D.C. and Nationals Park to start a three-game series with the Nationals (28-18) tomorrow at 4:05pm PDT. Luis Perdomo (0-1, 5.79) starts the first game with Max Scherzer (4-3, 3.02) going for the Nationals.
