Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an Sunday afternoon in the pub.  And then Avenging Jack Murphy gets sick and begs someone to finish writing the recap for him.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (21-24) lost yesterday to the Colorado Rockies (25-20) 8-6 in 10 innings.  Donn Roach made his first Major League start in place of Andrew Cashner, who missed his start after being placed on the 15-day disabled list because his elbow is sore.  Roach was on a 60-pitch limit and only made it through 3 innings, giving up 4 runs (all earned) on 4 hits and 2 walks without a strikeout.

Seth Smith, Rene Rivera, and Everth Cabrera all had home runs in the game.  But so did Corey Dickerson, Troy Tulowitzki, and Justin Morneau of the Rockies, who hit a walkoff 2-run shot off Dale Thayer in the 10th inning to win the game.

Oh, and Carlos Quentin left the game with a groin injury.  At least it wasn’t his knee, right?  RIGHT?!?

The Padres now return home to face the Minnesota Twins for a two game series starting Tuesday night at 7:10 pm PDT.  The projected starters Tuesday will be Ian Kennedy for the Friars and former Padre Kevin Correia for the Twins.

“This was a game that was in the balance the whole way. Both teams kept pecking away at each other the whole game, which is typical of this ballpark.”
