Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. trying desperately to think of ways to have your commemorative brick removed from the soon-to-be renamed Bud Selig Hall of Fame Plaza. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (60-70) defeated the Milwaukee Brewers (73-58) last night by a score of 4-1. Tyson Ross (12-12, 2.64) recorded his 13th quality start in a row by allowing just one run in six and one-third innings on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts.
Abraham Almonte hit a solo home run to right field off Brewers’ starter Jimmy Nelson (2-5, 4.10) in the first inning. He then added a second RBI with a single to right to score Ross from third in the third inning. Yasmani Grandal and Jedd Gyorko then each added an RBI of their own before Rene Rivera ended the inning.

Are we getting a cricket demonstration instead of one last chance to boo Selig?

Tyson Ross is really taking his anti-Selig aggression out on the Brewers.

This is strange, with Braun at the plate and a runner at 3rd Bud Selig just commanded that next point wins.

Almonte's first three trips to the plate tonight: HR…RBI-1b & run…bb & sb.

If Ross doesn't allow another run, he'll have his 14th start of 6+ innings and zero or one earned runs. That'd be the most in the NL.

Pretty sure I could see the National University sign at Petco during the Soarin' Over California ride…

Man, how hefty are those arb raises going to be for Ross and Kennedy next year? You almost have to extend someone, right? #Padres

Not only is Tyson Ross the Padres' most consistent pitcher – he's batting .400 (4-for-10) in his five August starts with 2 BB, 2 R and 1 RBI
