Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. Especially after the previous game was rained out and you burned through everything recorded on your TiVo instead of watching baseball. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (2-5) were defeated by the Cleveland Indians (4-3) at Progressive Field last night by a score of 8-6. Tyson Ross was all over the place, giving up 7 runs (but only 2 earned) on 5 hits, 5 walks, and one wild pitch in 5 1/3 innings with only 2 strikeouts. Former Padres farmhand Corey Kluber pitching 6 innings while giving up 3 runs on 9 hits with no walks and 8 strikeouts.
Alexi Amarista had a TOOTBLAN and a caught stealing. Jedd Gyorko and Tyson Ross each were charged with an error. It was just a all-around poorly played game of baseball. If it wasn’t for Vinnie Pestano‘s poor showing in the 9th inning, it would have been even worse.
Tomorrow, Eric Stults gets the start in the first game of the rain-delay rescheduled double header against Zach McAllister at 9:05 am PDT. A half-hour after that game ends, Robbie Erlin takes the mound against Trevor Bauer.

“Tyson struggled; there’s no doubt about that. The ball-strike ratio was poor. He didn’t gain any momentum: too many walks, behind in the count too often, couldn’t get his fastball in good spots. Tyson competes – he battled – but he’ll be the first to tell you he has to pitch better.”
Bud Black, using a lot of words to explain how that’s baseball. (Sanders)

Calling media outlets and CNN to report the #Padres for cashing in with RISP.

All I got was audio but it sounded like the #Padres really crapped the bed today. 6 doubles and 5 unearned runs. Quite a combo.
