While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 18 (SF vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. After all, there’s a lot of people walking around downtown wearing black and orange. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (9-9) defeated the San Francisco Giants (10-8) again last night by a score of 3-1, thanks to an RBI triple by Everth Cabrera in the 5th and a sacrifice squeeze by Chris “Norf” Denorfia in the 8th. Eric Stults pitched 6 innings, giving up just one run on 3 hits with 2 strikeouts. The Giants’ Tim Hudson gave up 2 runs in 7 innings on 8 hits with 4 strikeouts. There were no walks at all in the game. Which is kind of odd, I think.

Yonder Alonso started the scoring in the 2nd with an RBI single. Joaquin Benoit recorded his first save, as Huston Street was given the day off.

This afternoon has Robbie Erlin getting the ball against Tim Linecum [insert 420 joke here] at 1:10 pm PDT. It’s Easter Sunday, so there’s a special Easter Kids Fest too. Because, why not?

Quotes

“I got multiple emails from fans about that. I think the best answer is this; We did that a little bit last year, when against a left-handed pitcher, Cody Ransom played third and Jedd played second. Against a righty, Jedd played third and Alexi [Amarista] played second base. I just think moving a guy back and forth, especially an everyday player, is not the ideal situation. I think Jedd is a guy we want to keep at second base, keep him stable, keep him steady. I think Alexi’s mindset is such where he’s used to being moved from position to position. He fills in fine at third.”
