While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 129 (SD at AZ)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon at the pub watching the one tiny TV in the very back that the bartender begrudgingly graciously switched from the Local NFL Team’s practice preseason game to the Padres’ game.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (60-69) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks (55-76) 7-4 yesterday in Phoenix to prevent a sweep and get Bud Black his 600th win as a Major League manager.  Ian Kennedy (10-11, 3.72) earned the win while giving up three runs in five and two-thirds innings on eight hits and three walks with six strikeouts.  The Diamondbacks’ Chase Anderson (7-5, 3.71) wasn’t so lucky, giving up four runs in his five innings.

Yasmani Grandal hit a three-run home run in the fifth off of Anderson.  Will Venable hit a two-run home run in the eighth off of former Padre Matt Stites while pinch-hitting for Cameron Maybin.  Dale Thayer actually batted in the eighth inning, striking out on three pitches.  Joaquin Benoit pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his eighth save.

The Friars come home to Petco Park tonight at 7:10 pm PDT for the first of three games with the Milwaukee Brewers.  Eric Stults (6-13, 4.53) goes up against Kyle Lohse (11-7, 3.49).
