While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 4 (SD at MIA)

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.

Tomorrow, it’s a matchup of number one starters, as Andrew Cashner takes the mound versus Jose Fernandez at 4:10 pm PDT.

“We’re playing with no margin for error right now. That’s not good. Good teams find a way to pick guys up. We’ve got to do a better job of doing that.”

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.
