While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 62 (WAS vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening at the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (28-34) won the second game of their 3-game series with the Washington Nationals (31-28) in eleven innings by a score of 4-3.  Padres’ starter Andrew Cashner went six scoreless innings, retiring 16 Nationals’ batters in a row, with only 2 hits and a walk while striking out five.  However, Nick Vincent came in to relieve him to start the seventh inning and proceeded to surrender all three Nationals’ runs.  Adam LaRoche and Ryan Zimmerman hit back-to-back doubles, followed by a Ian Desmond 2-run home run to dead center field.

Meanwhile, Nationals’ starter Blake Treinen gave up two runs in six innings on five hits and a strikeout.  Chase Headley and Cameron Maybin each had a RBI double in the fourth inning.

In the bottom of the ninth inning and two outs, Yonder Alonso hit a solo home run to tie up the game and send the game into extra innings.  In the 11th, Cameron Maybin blooped a single to right field, allowing  Chase Headley to score the winning run from third base.

This afternoon at PETCO Park, Eric Stults (2-6, 5.03) takes the hill for the Friars against Jordan Zimmerman (4-2, 3.59) and the Nationals in the finale of the series at 1:10 pm PDT.  It’s Sunday, which means it’s another Kid’s Fest and US Marine Corps Appreciation Day.
