While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 47 (MIN vs SD)

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).

This evening, the Cubs come to town to start a 4-game series. Eric Stults (2-4, 4.50) takes on Jake Arrieta (0-0, 2.70). First pitch is at 7:10 P.M.
