While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 66 (SD at PHI)

Sometimes things could get a little bit fuzzy after an afternoon at the pub.  Or you could blow off the pub entirely and take the family to LegoLand.  Here’s what you may have missed while watching Brazil get gifted a penalty shot against Croatia instead of this game.

The Padres were unable to salvage one game in their series with Philadelphia (28-36), losing the Thursday matinee 7-3.  San Diego (28-38) has lost the first 3 games of their current 6-game road trip, which will next take them to the other end of the New Jersey Turnpike, and the Mets.

There was some early hope in this one as Chase Headley doubled home two in the top of the first, giving San Diego only it’s second lead in the series.  Philadelphia scored single runs in the first and fourth to draw even.  Starter Eric Stults began the sixth but was lifted after the first two hitters ended up on the corners.  Dale Thayer entered, and got two outs, but then gave up a bloop double to Wednesday’s hero Reid Brignac, giving the Phillies the lead.

The Phightin’s would tack on three insurance runs in the seventh, as John Mayberry Jr victimized Alex Torres with a 3-run blast to left.  Yasmani Grandal would pull one back with a two-out solo shot to left off Ken Giles, who made his major league debut.

In the ‘interesting stat but only I care about it because I’m old’ department, Jimmy Rollins needs one safety to tie Michael Jack Schmidt for his franchise’s all-time record in hits.
