While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 34 (KC vs SD)

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

The Padres (15-19) lost 3-1 to the Kansas City Royals (15-17) in 11 innings.  Robbie Erlin pitched 7 innings and only surrendered 1 run on 3 hits and 4 walks with 5 strikeouts.  But the Friars’ offense regressed against Jeremy Guthrie, who only gave up 4 hits — the big one being a solo home run from Yasmani Grandal in the 4th for the Padres only run — and a walk in 8 innings.  Nick Vincent was saddled with the loss after giving up 2 runs in the top of the 11th.

This afternoon Andrew Cashner takes the mound and will try to stop the bleeding* against the Royals and James Shields in the rubber game at 12:40 pm PDT.
