While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 104 (SD at ATL)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (46-58) lost 8-3 to the Atlanta Braves (57-48) yesterday at Turner Field.  Eric Stults (3-13, 5.22) had a horrible third inning, giving up six earned runs, but shutout the Braves the two innings before and the three after.  And for once, Stults left a game without surrendering a home run, which is nice, I suppose.

Braves’ starter Mike Minor gave up all three Padres runs in his six and two-thirds innings.  Two of which came from solo home runs by Yangervis Solarte and Rene Rivera.

It’s Baseball for Breakfast this morning at 9:10 am PDT as Jason Lane (0-0, 0.00) gets the call-up from AAA El Paso and the start in place of Ian Kennedy, who has a sore oblique.  The Braves will send Ervin Santana (9-6, 3.87) out to the mound in the series finale at Turner Field.

MLB Box Score


“It’s frustrating when you’re out there because there were at-bats where I felt like I executed pitches and just didn’t get the results. There were a lot of balls on the ground, but a lot of balls that found holes.”
