While You Were (Day) Drinking: Game 142 (SD vs COL)

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

The Padres completed a sweep of the Rockies with a 5-2 victory. Nick Hundley hit a bases loaded double (off Roy Oswalt of all people) to plate 3 runs in the seventh inning. Ian Kennedy pitched 5 innings, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits & 2 walks with 7 K’s.

Until Hundley’s double, the “Star of the Game” looked like it was going to be home plate umpire Todd Tichenor, who straight blew one call at home, calling Reymond Fuentes out even though Fuentes clearly touched home plate, and made a questionable out call on Kyle Blanks for leaving the base path in a rundown later in the game.

The win puts the Friars (65-77, .4577) in a virtual tie with Colorado (66-78, .4583) for third place in the NL West.

The Padres are off today, beginning their last East Coast road trip of the season on Tuesday in Philadelphia, with Andrew Cashner facing the Phillies’ Tyler Cloyd at 4:05pm PDT.
