While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 28 (SD at SF)

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.

The Giants’ scheduled starter, Matt Cain, was a late scratch with a cut finger. Yusmeiro Petit (2-1) took Cain’s place, pitching 6 innings with just 3 hits and no walks to go with 4 strikeouts.

Tonight, in the final game on this road trip, the Friars will send out Robbie Erlin against the Giants’ Tim Hudson at 7:15 pm PDT at AT&T Park.
