While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 81 (AZ vs SD)

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

The Padres (34-47) dropped the second game of three against the Arizona Diamondbacks (35-48) to fall into last place in the National League West last night by a score of 3-1.  Eric Stults (2-11, 5.36) didn’t pitch too bad in his 5 1/3 innings, giving up three runs (2 earned) on three hits and three walks with two strikeouts.  A 2-run home run by Miguel Montero in the sixth inning was the nail in the Padres’ coffin.

But — stop me if you’ve heard this before — the Padres offense sputtered again, this time against Josh Collmenter.  Collmenter gave up just the one run in 5 1/3 innings on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts.  Tommy Medica‘s sacrifice fly scored Chris Denorfia in the first.  That was it.  The Padres went 0-for-8 with RISP.

This afternoon at 1:10 pm PDT the Padres try to snap this 3-game losing streak, with Odrisamer Despaigne (1-0, 0.00) taking the mound against Mike Bolsinger (1-3, 4.78).

  • Padres were also no-hit by the AZ bullpen (3 2/3 IP) last night.

    But hey – Stults now leads the Majors in losses!
