While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 6 (SD at MIA)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after waking up in the morning after a night at the pub. Especially with the Marlins Park Monstrosity haunting your dreams all night. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were (day) drinking.

In the final game of the series at Marlins Park, the Padres came out ahead 4-2 yesterday. Ian Kennedy pitched six innings, giving up just one run on three hits and one walk with five strikeouts. On his 25th birthday, Alexi Amarista (yes, that Alexi Amarista) was the unlikely hero with a pinch-hit three-run home run in the seventh inning off of Nathan Eovaldi.

The Padres travel to Cleveland for a three-game series versus the Indians starting tonight at 4:10 pm PDT. Robbie Erlin gets his first start of the season against Corey Kluber for the Tribe.
