While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 153 (SF vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening wandering aimlessly around the Park at the Park during the season’s last Beerfest looking for a bathroom and a place to pass out. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (72-81) defeated the San Francisco Giants (84-69) 5-0 last night at Petco Park.  Odrisamer Despaigne (4-7, 3.36) once again dominated the Giants, giving up just two hits and a walk with six strikeouts over seven innings.  In twenty innings this season against San Francisco, Despaigne has given up just one run.

Tim Hudson (9-12, 3.52) lasted just four and a third innings, giving up all five Padres’ runs (four earned) on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts.  Alexi Amarista started off the scoring with a two-run double in the first inning.  Cameron Maybin then followed that up immediately with a two-run single.  Seth Smith then added the fifth run in the third inning with his RBI double.

This evening the second game of the three game series matches up Andrew Cashner (4-7, 2.20) against Yusmeiro Petit (5-4, 3.64).  First pitch is scheduled for 5:40 pm PDT.  After the game there’s a concert featuring O.A.R., whoever that is.
