While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 46 (MIN vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  And then Bud Black pinch-hits for Yasmani Grandal in the seventh inning with Cameron Maybin just so Maybin can not get the bunt down on the first two pitches and then fly out to shallow center on the third.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (21-25) lost last night to the visiting Minnesota Twins (22-21) by a score of 5-3.  Overall, it was a game filled with questionable strategy from Bud Black and poor performances at the plate and in the field from the Friars.

Ian Kennedy (2-6, 3.79) started for the Padres, pitching 6 2/3 innings giving up 4 runs on 6 hits and 2 walks with 6 strikeouts, and driving in a run at the plate.  Former Padre Kevin Correia (2-5, 6.52) started for Minnesota, lasting 6 innings while giving up 3 runs on 4 hits and a walk with 6 strikeouts.

This evening at 6:10 pm PDT, the Padres will have Tyson Ross take the mound against the Twins and Phil Hughes.

Chase Headley fields a bases-loaded grounder, steps on third and fires to Yonder Alonso, who makes a great pick to finish the play.

Chris Denorfia charges a sinking liner off the bat off Joe Mauer and makes a great diving catch to steal a hit and end the inning.

Jedd Gyorko lines a single through the infield into left field, scoring Chase Headley and cutting the Padres’ deficit in half.

Ian Kennedy drives in Jedd Gyorko with a bouncing single up the middle, giving the Padres a 3-2 lead.

Kurt Suzuki hits a deep shot that goes off Seth Smith‘s glove over the wall, allowing him to race around the bases for an inside-the-park a homer.
