While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 125 (SD at LAD)

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

The Padres (59-65) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (71-57) by a score of 4-1 last night at Dodger Stadium.  Eric Stults (6-13, 4.53) continued his recent success, giving up just the one Dodgers run while pitching five innings on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts.  Dodgers’ starter Roberto Hernandez (7-9, 3.78) gave up all four (three earned) Padres’ runs in five innings on eight hits and two walk with only two strikeouts.

Alexi Amarista reached base in all four of his plate appearances, scoring two runs with an RBI.  Stults helped his own cause with a bases loaded single that Dodgers’ left fielder Justin Turner bobbled twice for an error.  Rymer Liriano made a nice catch in right field.  Kevin Quackenbush pitched the ninth inning for his first Major League save.

Tonight at 7:10 pm PDT Tyson Ross (11-11, 2.70) takes the mound in the final game in Los Angeles against Clayton Kershaw (14-3, 1.86) and the Dodgers.

“Things are starting to turn his way.”
Bud Black on Stults’ recent fortunes (Brock)

“Once Buddy tells you, it’s kinda like you wait to get it out of the way. I was hoping it would be that first night in St. Louis, but to have the first one in Dodger Stadium is pretty awesome.”
