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 (42-55) defeated the New York Mets (46-51) 6-0 in the second game of their three game series at Petco Park. Padres’ starter Tyson Ross (8-10, 2.70) pitched seven shutout innings while giving up four hits and three walks with six strikeouts. Dillon Gee pitched five innings for the Mets, giving up four runs on five hits and no walks with eight strikeouts.
The Friars benefitted from solo home runs from Yasmani Grandal, Will Venable, and Seth Smith. Chase Headley added a two-run single in the second and scored the final run on a passed ball in the eighth.

Grandal you IDIO- oh nice recovery.

Ted just said Alexi Amarista had been “terrific” filling in this year. I do not think that word means what he thinks it means.

Love the Grandal home run, but LOL at the clown in the #SFGiants jersey (at a Padres/Mets game) running around trying not to spill his beer.

Who hits 440 ft homers at Petco?

I want to hug Bobo Henderson, seriously. #Padres

Rivera's a real speedster. You see you bunt with one strike, swing with two. Thanks for playing.

Seth Smith is the third "Garry" to play for the Padres. #PPLive

No arc necessary on Venable's home run there. #PPLive

That was a great 5 minutes. Ross' no-hitter ends on fluky single off third base and then some clown in brown robe in RF gets wave going.

I don't understand adults that are fascinated by things like beach balls and the wave.

I've been at a birthday party and just saw the #Padres score. If I start watching will I jinx it????
