While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 161 (SD at SF)

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

The Padres (77-84) lost 3-1 to the San Francisco Giants (87-74) on a bases loaded two-run eighth inning single against Dale Thayer in the second-to-last game of the 2014 season.

Eric Stults (8-17, 4.30) went seven innings, giving up just one run on six hits and no walks with five strikeouts.  Brandon Belt‘s RBI off of Stults came the second inning on a double to score Matt Duffy.  In the eighth inning Thayer loaded the bases before Brandon Crawford singled to score Belt and Duffy.

Jake Peavy (6-4, 2.20) pitched five innings against his former team, giving up the one run on four hits and three walks with three strikeouts.  Yasmani Grandal hit a sacrifice fly in the fifth inning, allowing Will Venable to score from third base.

The season comes to a close (finally) today from AT&T Park with first pitch scheduled for 1:05 pm PDT.  Robbie Erlin (4-4, 4.53) gets the start against the Giants and rookie Charlton Chris Heston (0-0, 0.00), who is getting his first ever Major League start.
