While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 26 (SD at WASH)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a few lazy ones on a Sunday afternoon at the pub. Or you get involved with mounting a new television to the wall and miss the first 6 innings. Either way, here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were doing stuff..

With a 4-2 victory the Padres earned a series split in DC moving their record to 12-14. Ian Kennedy pitched well, the Padres scored 4 runs, and Chris Denorfia and Cameron Maybin had multi-hit games. Life is good*.

*The Padres have failed to homer in the last five games. In terms of squaring-up baseballs, life is kinda bad.

The Padres return to the West coast to play a series against division leading San Francisco at AT&T Park. The Padres trail the Giants by 3.5 games and send Tyson Ross to the mound to face Madison Bumgarner at 7:15 PM on Monday night.

Yonder Alonso made a nice play at first base despite the wails from fans about his offense echoing through his mind.

Cameron Maybin returned in style with a double down the LF line.

Will Venable made a sick catch. Enjoy . . .

Ian Kennedy put it all together and helped the Padres get the series split.
