Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon at the pub. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (64-71) were defeated rather handily in the final game of their three game series with the Los Angeles Dodgers (77-60) by a score of 7-1, denying the Friars a sweep.
Eric Stults (6-15, 4.56) was not horrible, giving up just two runs in six innings on five hits and five walks with four strikeouts. Dodgers’ starter Hyun-Jin Ryu (14-6, 3.28) was better though, coming off the disabled list to only allow one run in seven innings on four hits and no walks with seven strikeouts.

“That’s the way it goes. Sometimes the hard ones get caught, and when you make good pitches, those ones fall in. It was just one of those days where it was a battle.”

Hey, can Cameron Maybin get picked off in the on-deck circle?

Seems like #Padres outfielders need to take charge on these pop-ups that fall in
