Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (67-77) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (82-63) by a score of 6-3 last night in Dodger Stadium. Andrew Cashner (3-7, 2.40) helped his own cause at the plate as well as throwing seven innings and giving up just 2 runs on nine hits and one walk with two strikeouts.
Roberto Hernandez (8-11, 4.04) meanwhile lasted just three innings. The Padres scored five runs (two earned) off Hernandez on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts. Cashner opened up the scoring in the second inning with a two-RBI double, taking third on a fielding error by Hanley Ramirez. Cashner then scored on Cory Spangenberg‘s single to center field. Jedd Gyorko followed up in the third with a two-run home run. Adrian Gonzalez had the only big hit off of Cashner, a two-run home run in the sixth.

At this rate, Jackie Robinson West will be the second NL wild-card team.

If Cashner had done that Saturday night, I would have written about something else on Monday.

That's 6 RBIs for Spangenberg in little over a week. I think he might be closing in on Maybin's season total.

Gotta respect Cashner, but never do that again please. #Padres

Those Dodger fans did not sound happy about Gyorko's bomb.

If you want to trade Cashner, I want to trade you. #Padres

There should be a rule that you're not safe at a base if you lose your helmet. You have to go back and get it. Safety first. #ChinStraps

I witnessed a grown ass man tweet that Eric Stults would have a winning record for a team with good hitting.

Alexi is doing well considering the circumstances similar to whoever was in charge of the star destroyer at the end of Empire Strikes Back
