While You Were (Day) Drinking (At Altitude) 2015 Game 17 (SD at COL)

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

The Padres (10-7) scored one less run, 2-1, than the Colorado Rockies (9-7) yesterday at Coors Field, splitting the series and ending the road trip with a 4-3 record.

Tyson Ross (1-1, 3.97) had a tough couple of innings, loading the bases in the first and third innings. Yet the only runs scored on him were on a bases-loaded walk of Daniel Descanso in the first inning and a solo home run by 2015 Padre-killer Corey Dickerson to lead-off the fifth inning. Ross ended up pitching five full innings with six hits, four walks, and seven strikeouts.

Jordan Lyles (2-1, 2.92) pitched six and two-third innings, giving up just the one run on a Yonder Alonso RBI single to score Matt Kemp from second base in the fourth inning. Lyles also allowed six hits and two walks with four strikeouts.

Tonight at 7:10pm has the Friars returning to San Diego and Petco Park for the first of three games against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Andrew Cashner (1-2, 2.65) gets the start versus Zack Greinke (2-0, 1.83). It’s also the first Padres Beerfest of the season. So I would fully expect to see a lot of drunk tweets in the recap tomorrow.
