While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 12 (DET vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon in the pub. And when Gyorko and Nady both go yard, you get so excited to raise your glasses in celebration. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

Tyson Ross out-pitched Max Scherzer in yesterday’s 5-1 Padres win over the Detroit Tigers. Ross went 7 innings, giving up 1 run on 6 hits and a walk with 7 strikeouts. Scherzer lasted just 5 innings, surrendering 4 runs on 4 hits and 3 walks with 10 strikeouts. The problem was one of those hits against Scherzer was a home run by Jedd Gyorko and another was a 2-RBI double by Will Venable. Xavier Nady added a huge pinch-hit home run in the eighth inning to put an exclamation point on the Friars win of the game and their first series win of the season.

Tonight, Eric Stults goes against Jordan Lyles and the Colorado Rockies at PETCO Park at 7:10 pm PDT. This is the first series of the season between the two teams.
