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 (41-52) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (52-43) 6-3 last night at Dodger Stadium. Jesse Hahn (5-2, 2.21) and his curveball confused and confounded the Dodgers batters. Over six innings, Hahn gave up just one run on three hits and four walks with six strikeouts. The Dodgers’ Dan Haren (8-6, 4.23) surrendered four runs on six hits and two walk with five strikeouts in just four innings.
Alexi Amarista opened up the Padres scoring with a two-run home run in the second. Chase Headley added a run with an RBI double in the fifth to score Seth Smith, followed up by another RBI double from Carlos Quentin to score Headley. Quentin added two more RBI in the sixth inning with a bases loaded single to score Will Venable and Smith.
Huston Street pitched a perfect ninth inning for his 24th save on the season.
Tonight at Dodger Stadium the Friars send Ian Kennedy (7-9, 3.71) to the mound to face the dreaded TBD* at 7:10 pm PDT.
*It’s going to be Paul Maholm (1-4, 5.18.

Haha. Strikeout passed ball error and an Amarista HR for the lead. So Padres.

Nice bat flip on that single, Puig.

Can I repeat my assertion that Jesse Hahn has better curves than Kate upton?
— Nathan Zack (@taterz1021) July 12, 2014
@ParkAtThePark To be fair, Headley usually avoids the problem by not getting on base.

Padres players showing uncharacteristic effort as of late. I'm guessing July 31st trade deadline is circled on a lot of clubhouse calanders.
