While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 160 (SD at SF)

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 (77-83) defeated the San Francisco Giants (86-74) 4-1 last night at AT&T Park.  The Giants’ loss means they will not host a Wild Card Play-In game against either the Pittsburgh Pirates or the St Louis Cardinals, depending on how the NL Central race shakes out.

Ian Kennedy (13-13, 3.63) pitched seven innings last night, giving up the one Giants’ run on four hits and two walks with six strikeouts.  In so doing, Kennedy was the first Padres’ pitcher to log 200 innings pitched with 200 strikeouts in a season since Jake Peavy did it in 2007.

Ryan Vogelsong (8-13, 4.00) gave up all four Padres’ runs in five and a third innings on six hits and two walk with five strikeouts.  Yasmani Grandal, Seth Smith, and Rene Rivera all had RBI hits.

This afternoon at 1:05 pm PDT the Padres will send Eric Stults (8-17, 4.42) to the mound against the aforementioned Peavy (6-4, 2.20) in the penultimate game of the 2014 season.
