Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (29-29) scored fewer runs than the Cincinnati Reds (24-31) yesterday. Zero is fewer than four, right? Math is hard.
Odrisamer Despaigne (3-4, 4.72) was smashed up by the Reds’ hitter — specifically Jay Bruce — giving up all four runs in six innings on nine hits and no walks with three strikeouts. Bruce had two home runs, a monster solo shot to right field in the second inning and a three-run home run in the sixth inning, for all four RBI for the Reds.
Johnny Cueto (4-4, 2.64) was almost the exact opposite of Despaigne, pitching seven shutout innings while allowing four hits and two walks with nine strikeouts.
The Padres travel to Atlanta for four games against the Braves starting this evening at 4:10pm PDT. Ian Kennedy (3-5, 6.60) takes the mound against Shelby Miller (5-2, 1.89). Also, Abraham Almonte was optioned to AAA El Paso to make room for Melvin Upton Jr, who was activated from the disabled list after his rehab assignment.

Every time someone says "Votto walks too much," I cringe. Can you imagine being Votto, doing your job perfectly, and then hearing that?

Remember when we all hated Shawn Kelley? I guess I remember still… FOR NOW.
