Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Then your friend has computer issues and needs you to come over to try to fix them, so you miss everything after the sixth inning. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. And reformatting.
The Padres (64-70) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (76-60) for the second game in a row in extra innings and third straight walk-off win, 2-1, this time on an RBI single by Alexi Amarista to score Will Venable from second base.
Ian Kennedy (10-11, 3.65) was dominant in his seven innings pitched, giving up just the one run on four hits and three walks with eight strikeouts. Dodgers’ starter Zack Greinke (13-8, 2.72) was just as dominant, going eight innings while giving up just one run on four hits and two walks on eight strikeouts.
This afternoon the Padres will send Eric Stults (6-14, 4.63) to the mound against Hyun-Jin Ryu (13-6, 3.28) in the series finale at 1:10 pm PDT. Prior to the game the Padres will hold an invite-only Social Media Summit, where it’s not expected they will answer any questions about the reasoning behind the Bud Selig Hall of Fame Plaza. At least not to anyone’s satisfaction.

BIG play by Solarte to get speedy Dee Gordon to start game.

Either he wasn't listening or Sweeney went out of his way to say Gatorade even after @jesseagler explicitly said Powerade.

Not surprisingly, Rene Rivera is the first #Padres player into the "Let's hit for the cycle tonight" pool with a sharp double to LF.

Kennedy should have went for three. The Padres are never gonna hit for the cycle if they don't get aggressive.

Why is Mark Kotsay dressed as the maitre'd in Billy Joel's Scenes From An Italian Restaurant?

Rene Rivera is boss behind the plate. Yes I used the word boss.

"Who did Hells Bells first? Mariano Rivera or Hoffy?" Color commentator for Aztecs game on CBS Sports Network. Oof.

Adrian Gonzalez goes golfing and winds up with #WhiskeyDeck

Vin Scully had just finished about 30 seconds discussing how badly Adrian had done against the Padres this year.

Would have left a 3 foot hole in Howell if it was a foot to the right.

Take those "Let's Go Dodgers" chants and shove 'em up your collective asses, LA.

Where have I been? Just realized the #Padres are undefeated since the Bud Selig announcement…

Do we get extra credit because we beat the Doyers & the Umpires?!

Kots just called Ian Kennedy "Adam Kennedy."
