Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. Especially when an American football schedule with which we were already vaguely familiar is released into the wild and becomes a distraction. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
Your San Diego Padres (10-12) were defeated by the Milwaukee Brewers (16-6) by a score of 5-2. Kyle Lohse was the winner for Milwaukee, moving to 4-1. He pitched 7 innings, allowing 2 runs (1 earned) on 5 hits, while striking out 5 and walking zero. Tyson Ross (2-3) was the loser, surrendering 5 runs (all earned) on 9 hits, walking 2 and striking out 3 over 6 IP.
Everth Cabrera started things with a leadoff double, moved to third on a Chris Denorfia ground out, and scored on a Seth Smith single. While a promising start, the Padres wouldn’t score again until the 7th inning. There, Nick Hundley singled home Jedd Gyorko, who reached base on a fielder’s choice and advanced to third on an error. Padres Baseball. That would be it for the Friars on this eve.
On the other hand, Tyson Ross struggled with location and the Brewers took advantage. A 3-run home run to Jean Segura in the 3rd inning, preceded by a 1st inning Ryan Braun RBI double, was more than enough. However, they were followed by a Khris Davis solo home run in the 4th.

“There are a couple guys having good at-bats, but the other five or six are struggling. There might be a little pressing. Guys might be squeezing the bats a little too hard trying to get that big hit.”
Padres manager Buddy Black, on continuing offensive struggles.
Keys to the game: 1. score runs, 2. don’t give up runs.

The Padres just had a catcher pinch hit for another catcher, followed by a catcher pinch-hitting for a pitcher. #3catchers
