While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 141 (SD at COL)

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 (66-75) lost to the Colorado Rockies (58-84) in twelve innings last night by a score of 7-6.  It was a disappointing end to a long game (4 hours, 52 minutes) that saw the Friars come back from a 6-2 deficit to tie it up.

Joe Wieland (0-0, 15.43) made his first Major League start since undergoing Tommy John surgery in July of 2012, pitching two and a third innings while giving up four runs on seven hits and two walks with a strikeout.  Home runs by Michael McKenry in the second and Justin Morneau in the third helped to make Wieland’s night a short one.

Jorge De La Rosa (13-10, 4.27) pitched well enough to win, giving up three runs in five and two-thirds innings on six hits and a walk with four strikeouts.  Tommy Medica hit a lead-off solo home run off of De La Rosa in the fifth.

Cory Spangenberg continues to be a hot option off of the bench, hitting a two-run home run when pinch-hitting for Alex Torres to make the score 6-5 in the seventh inning.  Seth Smith then tied up the game at six in the eighth with an RBI single.  And there it stayed until Drew Stubbs hit a ground ball off of Jesse Hahn to left field to score D.J. LeMahieu in the bottom of the twelfth inning.

This afternoon’s starting pitchers will be Tyson Ross (13-12, 2.60) for the Padres and Franklin Morales for the Rockies.  The final game of the season series in Colorado starts at 1:10 pm PDT.  Then we don’t have to worry about the Padres playing baseball in Colorado until sometime next April, at the very least.
