While You Were (Day) Drinking 2015 Game 57 (SD at CIN)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon at the Balboa Park Botanical Garden at a can share drinking beer, watching the Belmont Stakes on Ben Higgins’ iPhone, and not watching any of the Padres game. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (29-28) scored more runs than the Cincinnati Reds (23-31) yesterday, 9-7. Matt Kemp finally hit his second home run of the season & had five RBI in the game. Yonder Alonso had the other four with his grand slam in the Padres win. Andrew Cashner (2-8, 4.05) and Michael Lorenzen (1-1, 3.29) both started but neither figured into the decision.

Cashner gave up all seven Reds’ runs in five and two-thirds innings on eight hits and five walks with two strikeouts. Zack Cozart hit a solo home run in the third inning.

Lorenzen gave up just three runs in six innings on six hits and three walks with five strikeouts. Kemp’s home run came in the fourth inning. Kemp also had a two-RBI double in the fifth inning and a two-RBI single to give the Friars the lead in the eighth inning. Alonso’s grand slam came in seventh inning to tie the game at seven.

This morning at 10:10am PDT the Padres go for the three-game sweep of the Reds. Odrisamer Despaigne (3-3, 4.56) takes the hill against Johnny Cueto (3-4, 2.90) in Cincinnati.
