Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (66-71) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks (57-81) 2-1 on a walk-off home run by pinch-hitter Cory Spangenberg in the ninth inning last night, Spangenberg’s first Major League home run.

Neither Odrisamer Despaigne (3-5, 3.06) nor Wade Miley (7-10 4.18) figured in the decision, but both pitched outstanding.  Despaigne threw seven innings, giving up one run on four hits and no walks with four strikeouts.  Miley also gave up just one run in seven innings on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts.

Alexi Amarista had a couple of nice plays defensively and drove in the other Padres run with a single to score Rene Rivera in the fifth inning.

Tonight’s matchup pits Andrew Cashner (2-6, 2.37) against the Diamondbacks and Josh Collmenter (9-7, 3.94) at 7:05 pm PDT in the third game of four.
