While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 127 (SD at AZ)

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 (59-68) lost 5-1 to the Arizona Diamondbacks (54-75) in the first of three games at Chase Field in Phoenix.  Odrisamer Despaigne (3-5, 3.44) once again had trouble right from the start, giving up three runs in the first inning. And the Padres hitters were stymied by noted ace Josh Collmenter (9-7, 4.18).

Alexi Amarista was 2-for-3 with the lone Padres’ run scored in the ninth inning.  David Peralta‘s strong throw got Amarista at third with two outs on a third inning single by Yangervis Solarte, who went 2-for-4.  That was pretty much it for the Padres’ offense.

Tonight at 5:10 pm PDT, Andrew Cashner (2-6, 2.36) makes his first start since June 18th against the D-Backs’ Vidal Nuno (0-3, 3.72).
