While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 155 (SF vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (74-81) defeated the San Francisco Giants (84-71) 8-2 for a series sweep.  Ian Kennedy (12-13, 3.76) recorded his 200th strikeout of the season, becoming just the fourth Padres pitcher (Kevin Brown, Jake Peavy [3x] & Clay Kirby ) to do it.  Kennedy surrendered both Giants’ runs on a two-run home run by Chris Dominguez in the seventh.

Ryan Vogelsong (8-12, 3.96) gave up 4 runs (two earned) in five innings on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts.   Most of the damage came in the sixth inning, as the Padres scored three runs to increase their lead to 4-0, knocking Vogelsong out of the game in the process.

Yasmani Grandal had three RBI and Rene Rivera & Cameron Maybin each added a pair of RBI in the game.

Tonight is the first game of the final home series of the Padres’ 2014 season.  Eric Stults (7-17, 4.59) takes on the Colorado Rockies (65-91) and Tyler Matzek (6-10, 4.19) at 7:10 pm PDT.
