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 (43-55) beat the New York Mets (46-52) 2-1 on a walk-off infield single in the ninth inning that defies any sort of accurate description.  The Padres’ Odrisamer Despaigne pitched a no-hitter through seven and two-thirds before giving up a double to Daniel Murphy, who then scored on a David Wright single to tie the game at one.

After Yasmani Grandal hit his second home run in as many days in the fourth, the Padres were shutout until two outs in the ninth, when Cameron Maybin scored from third base as Mets’ relief pitcher Josh Edgin stumbled off of the mound while trying to field a ground ball from Seth Smith.

The Padres are off today as they travel to Chicago to face the Cubs in Wrigley Field.  Tuesday’s game is at 5:05 pm PDT and will have Eric Stults (3-11, 4.98) taking the mound against Kyle Hendricks (0-0, 6.00).
