While You Were (Day) Drinking 2015 Game 12 (SD at CHC)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (7-5) scored less runs, 7-6, than the Chicago Cubs (6-4) in 11 innings yesterday at Wrigley Field. After the Padres rallied in the ninth inning to tie the game at six, Starlin Castro had a walkoff RBI single off of the Padres’ Craig Kimbrel in the bottom of the eleventh inning.

Tyson Ross (1-0, 4.08) and the Cubs’ Kyle Hendricks (0-0, 6.10) started but neither figured in the decision. Matt Kemp put the Friars on the board with a two-run home run — his first home run as a Padre — in the first inning. Cubs’ catcher Miguel Montero had two home runs in consecutive at-bats, a solo shot in the sixth inning and a two-run one in the seventh inning.

The Padres finish the series against the Cubs at Wrigley Field today at 11:20am PDT. Andrew Cashner (0-2, 4.09) starts for the Friars versus the Cubs and Jon Lester (0-1, 7.84).
