While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 67 (SD at NYM)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening at the pub.  Then you give up on the game and do other, more interesting things.  Like washing the dishes or playing solitaire on your laptop.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (28-39) dropped their fifth game in a row last night in the first of three games with the New York Mets (30-37) in Citi Field, a new high for consecutive losses in this quickly becoming forgettable season.  Andrew Cashner (2-6, 2.47) pitched six innings, giving up four runs on eight hits and two walks with five strikeouts.  The Padres only runs came on a Rene Rivera 2-run home run in the second inning.

Bartolo Colon started for the Mets — yes, that Bartolo Colon — and gave up just the two runs in 7 1/3 innings on four hits and a walk with seven strikeouts.  Bobby Abreu — yes, that Bobby Abreu — went 4-for-4 with two runs scored and two RBI.

I stopped watching after Cashner came out of the game.  What’s the point?

This afternoon, Jesse Hahn (0-1, 9.82) gets another start that hopefully goes much smoother than his first one.  The Mets will trot out Zack Wheeler (2-6, 4.19) at 1:10 pm PDT at Citi Field.

Quotes

“Guys are fighting. You saw in Philadlephia we had the go-ahead run at the plate with Tommy [Medica]. A couple nights ago we had the tying run at the plate with arguably the most powerful guy on the team. So yeah, it’s there.”
Bud Black (Kring-Schreifels)

“I thought I came out executing early, and I just lost my command from the second to the fifth. The ball was getting flat a little bit, and I couldn’t stop the two-out hits.”
Andrew Cashner (Lin)
