While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 30 (AZ vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at Padres Beerfest. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (13-17) were defeated by the Arizona Diamondbacks (10-22) in a 2-0 shutout last night. The Friars offensive woes continued against Bronson Arroyo, who kept the Padres to just 3 singles in 7 innings. Andrew Cashner pitched 6 innings, the D-Backs’ only runs coming from a 2-run single by Aaron Hill in the third inning.

Good thing it was Beerfest and most of us were too “preoccupied” to care. If you don’t drink, this game would have been a good moment to start.

This evening at 5:40 pm PDT, Ian Kennedy takes the mound for the Padres. Maybe the offense will get a jump start against the D-Backs’ Brandon McCarthy. Or maybe we’ll all be crying into our beach blankets courtesy of Jerome’s.

“It’s not good. It’s frustrating. It’s just a matter of time. I am doing everything I can to make adjustments.”
Will Venable (Wilson)

“I don’t think I did a good job on a lot of stuff tonight, but I kept our team in the game and gave us a chance to win. But I think in that spot with the bases loaded, I can’t hang a slider.”
Andrew Cashner (Sanders)

“You look at the track record and see what their lifetime batting average is and envision they can get to that.”
Bud Black (Brock)
