Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  Then you find out Amarista is starting in center field in a late change to the lineup.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (23-29) were defeated by the Arizona Diamondbacks (21-32) 7-5 at Chase Field on a 2-run walk-off home run by A.J. Pollock off of Kevin Quackenbush.  The game was full of errors both in the field and on the basepaths.

Friars starter Tyson Ross pitched 5 innings while only giving up 2 runs until surrendering 5 hits in a row and 3 runs before being lifted without recording an out in the sixth inning.  D-Backs starter Brandon McCarthy pitched 6 2/3 innings with 5 earned runs on 9 hits with 4 strikeouts.

Yonder Alonso had a solo home run in the fifth inning.  Everth Cabrera drove in 4 runs on a 3 run home run and a RBI double.

Tonight the Padres and Eric Stults (2-5, 4.97) face off against the D-Backs and Wade Miley (3-5, 4.85) in Chase Field at 6:40 pm PDT.

After a Brad Ziegler pickoff attempt in the 8th inning is called safe, a D-backs challenge confirms the ruling on the field.
