While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 149 (PHI vs SD)

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 (69-80) defeated the Philadelphia Phillies (69-81) 1-0 last night in a game that saw Andrew Cashner (4-7, 2.20) pitch a two-hit complete game on just 92 pitches.  Also known as a Maddux.  Cashner walked just one batter to go with his seven strikeouts.

Jerome Williams (5-7, 5.03) wasn’t too shabby himself, pitching seven and two-thirds innings with no earned runs on just three hits and two walks with six strikeouts.  The one run came in the second inning when Cashner reached first base on an error, allowing Rene Rivera to score from third base.

As with most superb pitching performances, there were some great plays on defense.  Seth Smith combined with Alexi Amarista to double up Marlon Byrd on a Domonic Brown fly ball in the eighth inning.  And Amarista made a play that I’m still not sure actually happened to retire Grady Sizemore for the second out in the ninth inning.

Tonight Ian Kennedy (10-13, 3.77) goes against A.J. Burnett (8-16, 4.34) at 7:10 pm PDT.  It’s Taco Tuesday of course and Fiesta Padres happens before the game at the Park at the Park.

    I was not happy to be a Padres’ fan this morning when I heard the host on MLB radio say that Cashner had glared at Dom Brown for his bunt in this game … 1-0 game at the time … with a defensive shift on! The unwritten rule is total BS even if/when it’s not a 1-0 game with a shift on. Embarassing …
