While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 31 (AZ vs SD)

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

The Arizona Diamondbacks (11-22) handed the Padres (13-18) their fourth straight loss last night, 4-3. The Padres were shutout until the 9th inning, when Yasmani Grandal doubled to score Seth Smith and Jedd Gyorko hit a two-run home run to left field immediately after.

Ian Kennedy (2-4) allowed three runs on 11 hits and a walk with 7 strikeouts in his five innings. D-Backs’ starter Brandon McCarthy pitched seven shutout innings on 3 hits and a walk while striking out 6.

This afternoon’s series finale pits Tyson Ross versus Wade Miley on Navy Appreciation Day at 1:10 pm PDT.
