While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 14 (COL vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. And then every player, manager, coach, and umpire has the number 42, which just confuses you more. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (6-8) last night lost to the Colorado Rockies (7-8) by a score of 3-2 on Jackie Robinson Day. Robbie Erlin lasted just 4 2/3 innings, giving up all 3 Rockies runs on 6 hits and 1 walk with 7 strikeouts. Juan Nicasio started for the Rockies, pitching 6 innings while giving up 2 runs on 3 hits and 1 walk with 3 strikeouts. Both runs for the Friars were scored in the 1st inning, and Nicasio settled down after getting out of that inning.

Everth Cabrera was a late scratch from the lineup with a sore knee. Padres hitting coach Phil Plantier was ejected for arguing about a called high strike to Alexi Amarista. And Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki had a couple of nice defensive plays, as usual.

Tonight at 7:10 pm PDT, Andrew Cashner will attempt to follow up his one-hit complete game in his last start against the Rockies’ Jorge De La Rosa. We should assume everyone will be wearing their usual numbers.

    That was ugly. If you can’t eat off a Juan Nicasio silver platter, then you have no business winning any games. The Padres can’t blow these types of games and expect to be taken the least bit seriously.
