While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 146 (SD at AZ)

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 (68-78) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks (59-88) 6-5 last night in Phoenix’s Chase Field.

Eric Stults (7-16, 4.49) did Eric Stults things, giving up five runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk with two strikeouts in six innings.  The big blow came in the fifth inning with two outs and two runners on base, when A.J. Pollock hit a three-run bomb to left center field.

But, fortunately for Stults, the Diamondbacks’ starter was even more Stults-like.

Vidal Nuno (2-11, 4.58) gave up all six of the Padres runs in five innings on eight hits and a walk with two strikeouts.  Rene Rivera hit his tenth home run of the season, a solo shot to left field in the fifth inning, which ties his career season high as a professional.  Rymer Liriano, Cameron Maybin, Jedd Gyorko, Yasmani Grandal, and Yangervis Solarte each had an RBI as well.

This evening Tyson Ross takes the mound for the Friars against Chase Anderson of the D-Backs at 5:10 pm PDT.  The game is being broadcast on Fox Sports One, not Fox Sports San Diego.
