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 (28-37) were unsuccessful in their second consecutive attempt to fell the Philadelphia Phillies (27-36), defeated by a score of 3-0. Tyson Ross started for the Padres, throwing seven strong innings (0 runs, 4 hits, 1 BB, 7 K). Cole Hamels was just as good for the Phillies (8 IP, 5 H, 1 BB, 11 K). Joaquin Benoit pitched a solid 8th inning, while Nick Vincent‘s struggles continued in the 9th inning. After striking out Marlon Byrd, Vincent walked Domonic Brown, hit Carlos Ruiz with a pitch, and gave up a walk-off home run to Reid Brignac.

Tyson Ross has the good stuff tonight. We're talkin' pure, uncut stuff. Shit's lethal.

I think an admirable goal while tweeting is to piss off @ThisIsSan_Diego. "I feel like we're right there."

The Padres bunted Maybin from 2nd to 3rd so that the pitcher could hit with him at 3rd base. Nothing like burning outs!

We're so right there right now. It's the bottom of the 9th and we haven't been behind once yet! #PPLive

Get home, turn the game on MLB.tv, Phillies hit walk-off. I'd take the blame if jinxes were real and the Padres weren't awful. #PPLive
