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 Marlins and Jose Fernandez handed the Padres their fourth straight loss by a score of 5-0. Andrew Cashner pitched six innings of two-run ball on five hits and three walks, while striking out six. However, Fernandez outdueled Cashner, giving up just three hits and two walks with eight K’s in six and two-thirds innings.
The highlight for the Padres other than Cashner was a fine defensive play from Chase Headley in the fourth. That was it. Nothing else.

Fernandez too fine for Cashner, Padres – Jeff Sanders (UT San Diego)
“We’re in a team-wide situation where we don’t really have one guy that’s swinging the bat well. Conversely, you look at the Marlins and they’ve got a number of guys swinging it. That’s what happens. It’s cyclical over the course of the season.”

More accurate to question Amarista in a lineup regardless of catcher. #PPLive

Headley has no guts, no defensive, no offensive, and his glove and hands are very slippery. Really tried to see his play. #PPLive
