While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 5 (SD at MIA)

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.

The Padres wrap up the series in Miami at 10:10 am PDT tomorrow with Ian Kennedy taking the mound against Nathan Eovaldi.

“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.”

    I swear, it starts the same way every year. Nobody can hit, people overreact after 5 games, and yet the Padres will most likely be 5-15 to start the year off.
