Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub, especially after looking at the Marlins Park Monstrosity half the night. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres lost to the Miami Marlins, 8-2 yesterday.
Starter Eric Stults lasted just four innings, giving up five runs on seven hits and a walk with three strikeouts. One of those hits was a monster home run by Giancarlo Stanton that went over the Budweiser-sponsored bar in left field of Marlins Park, setting off that horrible, horrible statue-thing in center field.

The Marlins have officially hit the "Dog Days of April".

Just saw the replay of Giancarlo Stanton's home run off of Stults. Holy sh*t. #Padres

That was it? What was that like a 90 second half inning? Commercial breaks are longer.

Three and a half games in, it appears we have a theme here. #Padres

@DerekNBCSD I am positive you misused the word "crowd."

Nady, you're a pinch hitter — at least swing the bat man. Good God. #Padres

Alex Torres is the anti-Clayton Richard when it comes to fielding his position.

Giancarlo Stanton launches a long two-run home run to deep left off Eric Stults to open the scoring.
I was originally going to make this a choice between Stanton’s HR and just one choice: Anything else. But I figured that was cheating.
