While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 84 (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 (37-47) pummeled the Cincinnati Reds (43-40) by a score of 8-2 last night.  Carlos Quentin made up for a baserunning gaffe in the first inning by crushing his fourth homer in the seventh inning.

Ian Kennedy (6-9, 3.87) pitched six innings for the win, giving up just one run on seven hits and a walk with five strikeouts.  Reds’ starter Mike Leake (6-7, 3.47) took the loss after surrendering three runs in 5 2/3 innings on eleven hits and no walks with four strikeouts.

On top of Quentin’s 2-run blast to left field, the Padres’ Seth Smith led off the game with a solo home run to right field and was a triple short of the cycle, drawing a walk in his final plate appearance in the eighth inning.  Kennedy, Chase Headley, and Cameron Maybin all added RBI to the final score.

The game ended on a replay challenge, of all things.  With bases loaded, Headley threw to Irving Falu at second base to get the force out of Todd Frazier.  After Frazier was initially called safe, the replay official reversed the call, ending the game.  So, that happened.

This afternoon the Padres wrap up the series with the Reds.  Tyson Ross (6-8, 3.18) takes the mound versus Johnny Cueto (8-5, 1.88) at 12:40 pm PDT.
