While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 128 (SD at AZ)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy wishing you could spend your evening at the pub.  But your car is still at the mechanic’s until at least Tuesday.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.  Alone.  At your house.

The Padres (59-69) lost 5-2 to the Arizona Diamondbacks (55-75) last night.  Neither Andrew Cashner (2-6, 2.43) nor Vidal Nuno (0-3, 4.66) figured in the decision.  Kevin Quackenbush (2-3, 2.90) gave up a three-run home run to Didi Gregorius in the eighth inning to take the loss.

Yangervis Solarte hit a bases loaded single in the top of the eighth to score Rymer Liriano and Cameron Maybin, tying the game.  Then the bottom of the same inning happened.

This afternoon at 1:10 pm PDT the Padres will send Ian Kennedy (9-11, 3.72) to the mound against Chase Anderson (7-5, 3.71) in the final game of the series in Phoenix.
