Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub. Especially when the game is an hour early, or you’re Buddy Black and you have a flight to catch. Damn it, so confusing. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (21-26) were defeated by the Minnesota Twins (23-21) by a score of 2-0. It was another forgettable game in what is quickly becoming another forgettable season in San Diego.
Tyson Ross (5-4) was saddled with the “loss” after pitching 7 innings of 3-hit baseball, surrendering 2 runs while walking 3 and striking out 8. Phil Hughes (5-1) was the winner, giving up 7 hits (all singles) while walking 0 and striking out 7. Seth Smith continued to have success at the plate, going 3-4. Chase Headley and Cameron Maybin both went 2-4. However, the Padres bats were impotent (the team has an MLB-worst .348 SLG%), as well as ineffective once again with runners in scoring position (0-4, .199 on the season).

Maybe Maybin can sit for Venable again tomorrow.

You bat Will Venable in the middle of your lineup, you get what you get.

Ok, now I just want this to goto extras to see if Bud leaves the game to make his flight. #Padres

"…and so kids, ever since that Twins series, the Padres NEVER WON ANOTHER GAME." Closes book, turns out light, says good night.

At least it ended an hour earlier.
