While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 19 (SF vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after Easter morning brunch when you pass the time waiting for the game to begin by jamming Cadbury Eggs and Peeps into your mouth. Ooooooh, the rush. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were eating candy (and drinking).

The Padres (9-10) were oh so close to sweeping the Giants and going over .500 for the first time since Opening Day but it was not to be. Young lefty Robbie Erlin got off to a slow start giving up four quick runs and the Padres offense never fully solved the riddle that is Tim Lincecum. Do they ever? The Padres tried to make a game of it when Chase Headley cleared the bases with a double but the final run was negated when replay negated Xavier Nady‘s run. Nick Hundley later hit a HR to inch the Padres closer but 4-3 is what the scoreboard read when it was all said and done.

The Padres are on the road today beginning a series against the Milwaukee Brewers. Andrew Cashner faces Wily Peralta at 5:10 PM today as the Padres begin a road series that will take them to Milwaukee, Washington D.C., and San Francisco.

Quote

Bud Black on the replay reversal at home plate that took a run off the board:

“It would’ve been nice, but that’s baseball,” he said. “Would’ve been nice, obviously, to get the run, but like I’ve said, we are seeing a new era right before our eyes with replay. I didn’t run in to look at the replay or anything like that. From my vantage point, it looked like a good call. I thought he was safe.” (Tim Powers – mlb.com)

Yeah! Chase Headley drills a three run double! Chase Headley drills a three run double.

Boo! Chase Headley’s three run double turns into a two run double. Curse you, replay!

Bud Black discusses the game. He does not say, “That’s baseball.” Wait. Yes he did.

    Considering that it looks like Hundley is going to be the odd-man-out at some point, it’s sure nice to see him go 2-for-4 with a HR. Hopefully he can produce well enough that we can get something decent in return.
