While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 123 (SD at STL)

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

The Padres (58-64) lost 7-6 to the St Louis Cardinals (65-57) in the final game of their four-game series at Busch Stadium.  It took 42 pitches for Odrisamer Despaigne (3-4, 3.26) to get through the first two innings, giving up five runs in the process.  Which, when the opposing pitcher is Adam Wainwright (15-7, 2.40), is pretty much a nail in the coffin for any team.

But, the Friars managed to scrap their way back into the game against Wainwright, scoring four runs (three earned) off of him before he left after seven innings.  And they managed to score the other two runs off of reliever Seth Maness after Trevor Rosenthal loaded the bases in the ninth inning.  But it wasn’t quite enough.

The Padres have today off as they travel to Los Angeles to face the Dodgers in a three-game series.  Ian Kennedy (9-10, 3.54) faces off against Kevin Correia (1-0, 1.50) at 7:10 pm PDT tomorrow night.
