While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 100 (SD at CHC)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending 100 games watching awful baseball and your starting centerfielder getting suspended for 25 games.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (44-56) defeated the Chicago Cubs (41-58) by a score of 8-3 in the second game of a three game series at Wrigley Field. Ian Kennedy (8-9) was the winner for the Padres, Tsuyoshi Wada (0-1) was the loser for Chicago. Newcomers Jeff Francoeur and Yangervis Solarte each contributed immediately to the cause, driving in 2 runs and scoring 3 between them. Kevin Quackenbush, Alex Torres, and Ramona’s Nick Vincent combined for 2 innings pitched and were each rewarded with a “hold”, which is something.

The series wraps up today at 5:05 PM, with Tyson Ross (8-10, 2.70 ERA) going for San Diego vs. Chicago’s Edwin Jackson (5-10, 5.61 ERA).
