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 spending the first half of the game at the Central Library, listening to Andy Strasberg and others talk about Strasberg’s new book, San Diego Baseball Fantography.
The Padres (29-39) ended their five-game losing streak with a 5-0 win over the New York Mets at Citi Field yesterday. Jesse Hahn won his first Major League game, pitching six innings while only giving up one hit and three walk with seven strikeouts. He also added his first Major League hit and RBI in the fourth inning.
The Mets’ Zack Wheeler gave up four runs on six hits and three walks with four strikeouts in his five innings. Yonder Alonso had two doubles in five at-bats. Chase Headley went 2-for-3 with a solo home run in the eighth inning.

“I was very relaxed this time. This time I went out there, I stayed focused, stayed calm and pitched my game.”
Jesse Hahn (Kring-Schreifels)
“Team meetings are probably one of the more overrated things in sports. You close the door and there’s already a negative tone. And a lot of times, it happens after a bad game and everybody is already upset. And then the same kind of stuff is said over and over again.”
David Wright (Martin)

If Jesse Hahn can make in in New York, he can make it anywhere. #Padres

With Chase Headley's HR, #Padres have scored 5 runs in a game for the first time since May 28.

I was considering switching wireless providers to @ATT but I won't set foot in one of their stores until they pull the "whisper" commercial.

The wave has started at Citi Field, and these people are jazzed for 50 Cent.
