While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 65 (SD at PHI)

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.

The Padres finish up their series in Philadelphia today at 10:05 A.M. Eric Stults (2-7, 5.68) starts for San Diego, Kyle Kendrick (1-6, 4.30) goes for the Phillies. The World Cup starts at 1 P.M.
