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 (36-47) pulled out the win with only one hit for the second time this season, defeating the Cincinnati Reds and Mat Latos (1-1, 2.45) by a score of 1-0. What’s more, the lone Padres run was scored on a sacrifice fly by Everth Cabrera. The Padres ended up hitting .171 for the month of June. Which is pathetic, to say the least.
Jesse Hahn (4-1, 1.95) pitched five innings with three hits and two walks to go with nine strikeouts. Blaine Boyer, Dale Thayer, Joaquin Benoit, and Huston Street (22nd save) each threw a shutout inning to preserve the win.
Tonight Ian Kennedy (5-9, 4.01) takes the hill against Mike Leake (6-6, 3.41) and the Reds at 7:10 pm PDT in the second game of the series. It’s Taco Tuesday again, so I hope you’re hungry if you’re going.

People who complain that Votto walks too much probably hate money too.

Hope Ludwick & Latos return to their August 2010 form when, between them, they sank the Padres playoff chances with pathetic performances.

Well now we know how easy it is for FSSD to spy on our phones. Guess we all have to stop sexting from our seats at the ballpark. #hubbahubba

When Ludwick was a Padre, there was a rumor he got in a fight with Mike Adams. I never believed it. Ludwick never hit anything in San Diego

"I feel like we're right there." RT “@jodes0405: As great as the Padres D was, there was no Padres O at the end of the inning.”

You know, there's a chance the National University sign shoots off fireworks if the Padres hit a HR. We haven't seen one since installation.

After throwing out Billy Hamilton in the 1st, Yasmani Grandal just launched a throw to 2B about 30 ft above Cabrera's head. Not exaggerating

Subtract 20 lbs, every single tattoo, mix in a buzz cut, and Rivers and Latos look a lot alike! @Mudcat55

@TheThinGwynn Be honest: you've had that tweet saved to drafts since last year, haven't you?

Nothing says Padres baseball than scoring without recording a hit.

Enberg complaining about those 3 minutes of replay again. #drink

Votto is good. Slaps a leadoff single to left. Refreshing to see someone shorten up and look the other way with 2 strikes.

I see you doing The Wave, Petco Park. This is why you can't have nice things.
