While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 76 (LAD vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub watching the U.S. Men’s National Team playing in the World Cup instead of the Padres game.  Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (32-44) lost the rubber game to the Los Angeles Dodgers (42-35), 2-1, yesterday at PETCO Park.  Eric Stults (2-10, 5.49) gave up 2 runs early on, but settled down to pitch seven innings with six hits, three walks, and five strikeouts.  The offense, once again, just wasn’t there against Hyun-Jin Ryu (9-3, 3.06), with the only run coming in the sixth inning from a leadoff double by Chris Denorfia and then a one-out groundout by Carlos Quentin.

The Padres head to San Francisco for a three-game series with Giants at AT&T Park.  Odrisamer Despaigne — called up to take Andrew Cashner‘s (2-6, 2.36) turn in the rotation for some reason — gets the start in his Major League debut against Matt Cain (1-5, 4.52) tonight at 7:15 pm PDT.
