Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub. So here’s an abbreviated reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
Your San Diego Padres (38-47) defeated the Cincinnati Reds (43-41) by a score of 3-0, completing a series sweep. Tyson Ross was your winner, pitching the first complete game shutout of his career (3 hits, 9 strikeouts, 0 walks). Johnny Cueto was a hard-luck loser, giving up 3 runs on 7 hits while striking out 8. His ERA balloons to a 1.99 after the outing.
The Padres scored their three runs in the first inning, on a single by Rene Rivera that Billy Hamilton had a little bit of trouble with. It was the first three-run single hit in Major League Baseball in six years.
