Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub watching Wayne Partello spin the brown uniform non-controversy on Padres Social Hour before the game. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (24-29) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks (21-33) by a score of 4-3 last night. Tommy Medica had 2 RBI on a third inning single and a go-ahead home run in the eighth inning to lead the Friars to the victory.
Yasmani Grandal was injured on a catcher’s interference call when he was hit on the left hand during a Paul Goldschmidt swing. Starting pitcher Eric Stults lasted six innings, giving up 3 earned runs on 5 hits and 4 walk with just one strikeout.

Nothing like watching strike three go right down the middle of the plate. That's on Plantier though, right?

Please don't corner young Medica as a platoon player that only is inserted vs. LHP.

"Bud Black's theory works." Buddy invented batting right handers vs lefties?

Norf really Deno'd that line drive. Lucky he didn't catch that one in the chops.

Yasmani Grandal is acting like he just broke his hand on a catcher's interference. Ugh. Can we get Hundley back?

Miguel Olivo is a free agent, and he's feisty. #PPLive
