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.
Eric Stults (8-17, 4.42) pitched six and a third shutout innings on seven hits and one walk with five strikeouts. The Rockies loaded the bases in the fifth inning with two outs, but Stults got Josh Rutledge to strike out to end the threat.
Tyler Matzek (6-11, 4.05) pitched arguably a better game, giving up the one run in six innings on four hits and three walks with eight strikeouts.
Robbie Erlin (4-4, 4.53) starts tonight at 7:10 pm PDT against Jorge De La Rosa (14-11, 4.14) in the penultimate Padres home game of the 2014 season. The Padres announced that the Shirts Off Their Backs presentations will be after tonight’s game to make it easier on the travel schedule after tomorrow’s game.

Why don't Enberg and Grant ever mention Laura when Josh Rutledge is up at the plate?

Stults is starting to get hit hard. I'm sure he'll be fine.

Two things about that humpback pop-up/infield fly call… 1. It's a horrible call. Was by no means an easy out. 2. Infield fly rule sucks.

Stults is starting to have a Stults 5th inning? Gotta stop that.

Josh Rutledge. Still lucky at life.

Stults is a magician! By "magician" I mean that he momentarily fools us into believing something that isn't real.

"He's got a body that just wont quit"-basically what Enberg just said.

Oh, he's one easily excitable dick.

Thayer got even better. That's three good years in a row.
