Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. Then you find out that Yasmani Grandal is starting at first base instead of Yonder Alonso. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (13-15) were beat down by the San Francisco Giants (16-11) by a score of 6-0 last night.
Padres’ starter Eric Stults (1-3) got hit early and hit hard, lasting only 2 2/3 innings while surrendering 5 runs (all earned) on 7 hits and 2 walks with just one strikeout for the loss. Two of those hits were first inning solo home runs from Angel Pagan and Buster Posey. Hector Sanchez alone had 3 RBI on the night.
Donn Roach came in to relieve Stults, and ended up pitching 4 1/3 innings with 1 run on 2 hits. Roach also hit the first pitch he saw for a double for his first Major League hit.

Why stop at a rotation of 2 crafty leftys? Let's go for 80%. #stultsifythem

The Padres just taught the Giants how to count to 3.

On the plus side, this is a great chance for Roach to show us something.

@DSmithShow Speak for yourself. I spent the whole offseason day dreaming about Jace Peterson throwing across the diamond to Yasmani Grandal.

Through Monday, the #Padres had struck out 14 more times against curveballs than any other team in baseball.

That would have been such a Padre thing to happen if Maybin had injured himself on that slide. Looked somewhat unnecessary.

Final piece! How about a 7 run homer?
