Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  Then the Giants pay homage to Tony Gwynn before the game and you get choked up again.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (32-44) defeated the San Francisco Giants by a score of 6-0 last night at AT&T Park.  Odrisamer Despaigne (1-0, 0.00) made his Major League debut by pitching seven shutout innings with only four hits, no walks, and one strikeout.  Matt Cain (1-6, 4.82) took the loss after pitching 7 1/3 innings with 6 earned runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven.

Yasmani Grandal had a fan-interfered ground rule RBI double in the third inning that caused Bud Black to get thrown out arguing the replay call, which is a no-no.  Tommy Medica then followed up with a double of his own to plate two more runs.

In the Padres’ eighth inning, Everth Cabrera hit a two-RBI single to score Jake Goebbert and Will Venable, then made it to third on a throwing error.  Seth Smith then hit a double to score Cabrera.

Tonight at 7:15 pm PDT Jesse Hahn Hahn (2-1, 2.16) takes the mound against the Giants’ Tim Hudson (7-3, 2.39).
