While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 54 (SD at AZ)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  Then the FSSD crew admits to cheerleading from the booth and oh, brother.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (24-30) were defeated by the Arizona Diamondbacks (22-33) by a score of 12-6 last night. Tommy Medica continued his hot hitting in Arizona, going 3-5 with 3 RBI and missing the cycle by a single. He may have actually hit for it in another ballpark (definitely Petco Park), as he reached on what was scored an error in the second inning after Martin Prado had a hard time handling a ball Medica smoked to 3B.

Tim Stauffer (L, 2-1) started for the Padres and did not make it out of the first inning. He gave up 6 hits, 1 walk, and 7 earned runs, recording only one out via strikeout before being removed. All told, the Diamondbacks scored 8 runs in the 1st, 2 in the 2nd, and 2 more in the 7th.

Chase Anderson went for Arizona, pitching at Chase Field against Chase Headley and okay I’ll stop. He went 5, surrendering 8 hits, 4 runs (1 earned) while walking 1 and striking out 3. Not spectacular, but good enough to win when you’re spotted 8 in the 1st. Martin Prado and Paul Goldschmidt starred for Arizona, driving in 3 runs and hitting a 2-run home run each. Goldschmidt’s home run was a 470 foot bomb  off of the scoreboard in CF (which will likely feature in the highlights below). Sorry, bad at mystery and intrigue.

Mercifully The Padres are off today, beginning a series tomorrow in Chicago vs. the White Sox. Ian Kennedy (3-5, 3.59 ERA) takes on John Danks (3-4, 4.90 ERA). Game time is 5:10 P.M.

      If I’ve learned anything from the Padres it’s that you can change history and FUCK YOU FOR CARING!
