While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 74 (LAD vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy when you spend an evening in the pub.  Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (32-42) #BeatLA last night with a 3-run ninth inning comeback win against the Los Angeles Dodgers (40-35) at PETCO Park.  Seth Smith had two solo home runs, a double, and a walk.  Everth Cabrera hit a sacrifice fly ball to right field to score Alexi Amarista in the ninth.

Ian Kennedy started for the Friars, lasting five innings with five strikeouts while giving up all five Dodgers runs on seven hits and two walks.  Dodgers’ starter Dan Haren pitched 5 2/3 innings, surrendering three run on five hits and two walk with five strikeouts.

Tonight, Tyson Ross (6-6, 3.27) takes the mound against Josh Beckett (4-4, 2.49) at 7:10 pm PDT in the second game of the three-game series.  It’s “Beat L.A.” T-shirt Night.  So everyone in attendance has that going for them.  Which is nice.

Quotes

“It was as pure emotion as you’ll see at any level.”
Jake Goebbert on his first Major League hit and RBI (Laws)

“This has been a tough week for us, for San Diego. When you look at the whole week, more so than the game, it’s good to win. It’s good to win for the city. It’s good to play a good game and get an emotional win.”
Bud Black (Sanders)

“With all due respect, it’s Seth Smith, not Babe Ruth. He hit like Babe Ruth tonight. He’s hit me well in the past.”
Dan Haren (Gurnick)

    Anyone remember the ’94 club? The team was admittedly terrible. That said — Luis Lopez, Eddie Williams, Tony Gwynn, Bip Roberts, Trevor Hoffman, Andy Benes, et. al. — at least the team was fun to watch and/or listen to. This 2014 club has to be the most anemic hitting Padres club in team history. Given some of the lean years in the early ’70s, that’s really saying something. Still, nice to get a walk-off win last night.
