While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 83 (CIN 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 (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.

There were some excellent defensive plays from Carlos Quentin and Cameron Maybin to keep the shutout intact last night, though.

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.
