While You Were (Day) Drinking 2015 Game 13 (SD at CHC)

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

The Padres (8-5) scored score more runs than the Chicago Cubs (6-5), 5-2 in the series finale at Wrigley Field. Two-run home runs from Will Middlebrooks in the second inning and Yangervis Solarte in the seventh inning sealed the win for Andrew Cashner (1-2, 2.65). Cashner had a rough first inning as defensive miscues helped the Cubs score both runs.

Jon Lester (0-2, 6.89) gave up three runs in six and a third innings on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts. Other than the Middlebrooks home run, though, his only real problem came in the seventh after he left, when a Will Venable RBI single with two on that scored Matt Kemp from third base.

The Friars travel to Denver to start a four-game series with the Colorado Rockies tonight at 5:40pm PDT. Odrisamer Despaigne (1-0, 0.77) takes on the Rockies and Jorge De La Rosa (0-0, 0.00).

MLB Box Score


“The bench was a little verbal, and I was part of that.”
