While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 75 (LAD vs SD)

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

The Padres (32-43) lost 4-2 to the Los Angeles Dodgers (41-35) last night at PETCO Park, in the process snapping their 3-game winning streak.  Tyson Ross (6-7, 3.22) took the loss, despite pitching seven innings with only two earned runs on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts.  Dodgers’ starter Josh Beckett (5-4, 2.28) earned the win, also pitching seven innings.  The difference was Beckett didn’t allow a run.

The Friars scored their two runs in the eighth inning on 2-out RBI singles from Tommy Medica and Rene Rivera.  Medica’s single scored pinch-hitter Cameron Maybin, who led off the eighth with a triple to right field.  Rivera plated Seth Smith, who walked with two out.  But it wasn’t enough.

This afternoon, the Padres wrap up this series with the Dodgers at 1:10pm PDT.  Eric Stults takes the hill against Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers.  It’s U.S. Coast Guard Appreciation Day and Kids Fest Sunday.
