While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 121 (SD at STL)

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 (57-63) lost the second game of their four-game series to the St Louis Cardinals (64-56), 4-2, last night at Busch Stadium.  Padres starter Tyson Ross (11-11, 2.70) was shaky in the first inning for the second start in a row, giving up two runs, before settling down once again.  But the Padres’ batters were unable to figure out how to get to Lance Lynn (13-8, 2.91).

The Padres only runs came on a Will Venable RBI double in the fifth inning to score Jace Peterson and a Yasmani Grandal home run to straightaway center field in the ninth inning.  Chris Nelson then doubled and Venable came up representing the tying run, but struck out on a pitch well outside to end the game.

This evening at 4:15 pm PDT Jesse Hahn (7-3, 2.52) takes the hill against Shelby Miller (8-9, 4.17) in the third game in St Louis.  The game is being broadcast nationally on Fox Sports One, so don’t flip by Fox Sports San Diego looking for the game.  If your TV package doesn’t include Fox Sports One (like mine), you’ll be listening to the game on Mighty 1090 (like me).
