Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during a Sunday afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (66-90) scored more runs than the San Francisco Giants (82-74) in their season series finale at Petco Park, 4-3.
Clayton Richard (3-3, 2.98) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and three walk in six inning with one strikeout. All three Giants’ runs came in the third inning: Kelby Tomlinson ground out with the bases loaded to drive in Trevor Brown and Buster Posey‘s two-run single scored Ty Blach and Eduardo Nunez.
Blach (0-0, 2.00) gave up two runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three in four innings. The Giants used six relievers, three of those in the last two innings. Manuel Margot hit a single to drive in Austin Hedges in the second inning. In the third inning, Adam Rosales hit a solo home run. A Yangervis Solarte single in the fifth inning scored Wil Myers. And Myers hit an RBI single in the seventh inning to drive in Margot with the go ahead run.
The Padres are off today. The Los Angeles Dodgers (90-66) come to Petco Park for the final time in 2016 for three games starting tomorrow at 7:10pm PDT. Paul Clemens (3-5, 4.48) gets the start in the first game against Jose De Leon (2-0, 5.52).
