While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 148 (SD at AZ)

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

The Padres (68-80) lost the game and the series to the Arizona Diamondbacks (61-88) yesterday by a score of 8-6.  Odrisamer Despaigne (3-7, 3.63) pitched five and two-thirds innings, giving up five runs (three earned) on six hits and three walks with two strikeouts.  All five runs came in the Diamondbacks’ third inning, topped off by Despaigne not covering the plate as Miguel Montero slid home.

Trevor Cahill (3-11, 5.38) lasted just four innings, despite having seven strikeouts.  The Friars managed to score four runs off of Cahill though, two of which came in the fourth on a groundout by Cory Spangenberg and a wild pitch to Yangervis Solarte, who then ended the inning on a strikeout.

The Padres managed to score two more in the ninth inning on an Adam Moore double and an Alexi Amarista groundout, but that was it.

The Philadelphia Phillies come to San Diego for four games at Petco Park to begin the last Padres homestand of the season.  Andrew Cashner (3-7, 2.40) faces Jerome Williams (3-1, 3.44) tonight at 7:10 pm PDT.
