While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 69 (SD at NYM)

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

The Padres (29-40) lost the game and the series at Citi Field to the New York Mets yesterday, 3-1.  Mets’ starter Daisuke Matsuzaka left the game after one inning with a “severe upset stomach” and the Padres’ offense could not adjust to reliever Carlos Torres.

Ian Kennedy (5-8, 3.72) took the loss after giving up all three Mets’ runs on seven hits and four walks with seven strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings.

This game had some of the worst baserunning by the Padres I have ever seen.  Will Venable getting thrown out at third base on a sacrifice bunt by Everth Cabrera in the first inning.  In the seventh inning, Alexi Amarista didn’t run out a liner to shortstop that was dropped.  A couple of batters later, Yonder Alonso didn’t try to break up a double play at second base, instead veering off to the inside of the basepath without even touching the bag.

The Padres travel to Seattle today to start the 2014 Vedder Cup.  Tyson Ross takes the mound at 7:05 pm PDT against former Padres pitcher Chris Young.

“I know it looks a little ugly on television, but no, not lack of effort at all by any of those guys.”
