While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 118 (COL vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending your evening at the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (56-62) defeated the Colorado Rockies (46-73) last night by a score of 4-1.  Odrisamer Despaigne (3-3, 2.72) shutout the Rockies in seven innings while giving up five hits and two walks with eight strikeouts.  Rockies’ starter Yohan Flande (0-5, 5.36) surrendered two runs in five innings on four hits and two walks with two strikeouts.

Rymer Liriano collected his first hit in the fourth inning, later coming around the diamond to score the second Padres run.  Chris Nelson and Tommy Medica made back-to-back plays on defense falling into the stands while catching foul balls.  Nelson then followed-up his outstanding play with a two-RBI single in the eighth inning.

This afternoon Ian Kennedy gets the start for the Padres against the Rockies’ Tyler Matzek.  First pitch of the getaway game is scheduled for 3:40 pm PDT at Petco Park.
