While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 95 (SD at LAD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub watching the one small TV in the back corner not tuned to the World Cup final.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.  And squinting.

The Padres (41-54) lost 1-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers (54-43) at Dodger Stadium yesterday in the final game before the All-Star break.  Tyson Ross (7-10, 2.85) threw seven innings with nine strikeouts and one walk on six hits, giving up the only run on a Yasiel Puig single to score Dee Gordon in the sixth inning.

The Padres offense was particularly offensive against Hyun-Jin Ryu (10-5, 3.44), striking out ten times with zero walks and two hits in his six innings.  The closest the Friars came to scoring was in the ninth inning, when Carlos Quentin singled (then was lifted for pinch-runner Jace Peterson) and Yasmani Grandal singled to get Peterson to third.  But Jake Goebbert and Seth Smith each struck out to end the threat and the game.

The Padres are off for the next four days, along with every other team, for the All-Star break.  Their next game is the first of three games against the New York Mets on Friday night at 7:10 pm PDT at PETCO Park.  Ian Kennedy (7-9, 3.47) takes the hill against Bartolo Colon (8-8, 3.99).
