While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 53 (SD at AZ)

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.

On the D-Backs side, Wade Miley pitched 7 innings with 3 earned runs on 8 hits and a walk with 11 strikeouts.  Martin Prado hit a solo home run off of Stults in the second inning.

This evening, the Padres wrap up this series in Phoenix, with Tim Stauffer making his second start of the season versus Chase Anderson at 6:40 pm PDT at Chase Field.
