While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 49 (CHC vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  And then you have a Cardiff Crack tri-tip sandwich while the Padres are scoring 11 runs and your world is changed.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (22-27) demolished the Chicago Cubs (17-29) last night, 11-1.  Tim Stauffer (2-0, 1.90) made his first start in two years in place of the injured Robbie Erlin, who was placed on the disabled list this week with the dreaded “elbow soreness.”  Stauffer pitched five scoreless innings, giving up only 2 hits and a walk with 5 strikeouts.

Cubs’ starter Edwin Jackson (3-4, 4.94) was roughed up, lasting four innings while giving up 8 earned runs on 9 hits and 2 walks.  Two of the nine hits were home runs by Yonder Alonso and Yasmani Grandal.  That was all the offense the Padres needed, but the brown 1984 jerseys had a few other runs in them to be unleashed.

Tonight, at 7:10 pm PDT, the Friars send out newcomer Billy Buckner to start against the Cubs and Travis Wood.  It’s Baseball Night in San Diego again, with every fan in attendance getting either a Tony Gwynn, Ed Whitson, Graig Nettles, Kevin McReynolds, or Steve Garvey replica brown 1984 jersey.

MLB.com Box Score


“We haven’t had many of those. When that happens, there’s a different feeling in the dugout, there’s a different vibe. Guys want to get to the bat track, they want to start hacking, they want to get involved. And that kind of happened.”
Bud Black (Brock)

“The hitting was kind of like a snowball. It was just having good at-bats.”
Yonder Alonso (Lin)

“I didn’t give us a chance. Today was a terrible job of making adjustments all the way around, it doesn’t matter how they [Padres] are hitting, this is the big leagues. I can’t pitch like that.”
Edwin Jackson (Brock)
