While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 82 (AZ vs SD)

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 (35-47) started the second half of the season on a high note, defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks (35-49) by a score of 2-1.  Odrisamer Despaigne (2-0, 0.66) logged his second win to start his Major League career, pitching 6 2/3 innings, giving up just the one run on five hits and four walks with two strikeouts.

Cameron Maybin and Alexi Amarista each knocked in a run in the fourth inning against Diamondbacks’ starter Mike Bolsinger; Maybin with a double to score Chase Headley and Amarista with a sacrifice fly to score Tommy Medica.

Huston Street pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning to record his 21st save.

Tonight Jesse Hahn (3-1, 2.98) takes the hill against former Padre Mat Latos (1-0, 2.89) at 7:10 pm PDT at PETCO Park.
