While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 21 (SD at MIL)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub.  After all, this game went on so long with nothing happening that it seemed to blend into the next day.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (10-11) defeated the Milwaukee Brewers (15-6) in 12 innings by a score of 2-1.  Ian Kennedy pitched 6 innings of 1 run baseball, giving up 4 hits and 3 walks with 5 strikeouts.  The Brewers’ starter, Yovani Gallardo, pitched 7 innings, giving up 1 run on 5 hits and 2 walks with 4 strikeouts.

Kennedy drove in the first Padres run with a squeeze bunt in the 5th inning that Gallardo misplayed, allowing Yonder Alonso to score and Kennedy to get to first base.  Scooter Gennett‘s 5th inning home run off of Kennedy tied up the game at 1.  And there it stayed for the next 7 innings.

Chase Headley hit a 447 foot home run in the top of the 12th inning for the Padres second run, which ended up being the winning run.  Huston Street retired the side in order in the bottom of the 12th for his seventh save after Donn Roach allowed just one hit over two scoreless innings for his first career win.

The Friars will send out Tyson Ross to face Kyle Lohse at 5:10 pm PDT for the series finale tonight at Miller Park in Milwaukee.

Quotes

“[His success] is carrying over from last year when he was our go-to guy last year with men on base. He’s a huge part of our bullpen, he throws early strikes, there’s no fear there and his cutter is one of the best in the game.”
Padres’ pitching coach Darren Balsley, on reliever Nick Vincent (Brock)
