While You Were (Day) Drinking: Game 148 (SD vs ATL)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a long day at the pub with an East Coast road game that starts at 10:30 in the morning. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were (day) drinking.

The Padres shutout the Atlanta Braves 4-0 to wrap up their season series yesterday. The Friars (68-80) won 5 out of 6 meetings with the Braves this season.

Burch Smith had a no-hitter going through the first batter of the sixth inning, when Braves’ starter Julio Teheran managed to get one to roll right up the middle. Smith pitched 7 innings, giving up just 3 hits and 2 walks while striking out 10.

Will Venable stole his 20th base of the season and later scored on a Jedd Gyorko single in the sixth. Chase Headley hit a two-run home run to make the score 3-0 in the same inning. Tommy Medica hit another solo home run in the seventh to close out the scoring.

The Padres head to Pittsburgh this evening, with Andrew Cashner facing A.J. Burnett at 4:05pm PDT.
