While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 97 (NYM 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 (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.

This afternoon the Friars’ Odrisamer Despaigne (2-1, 1.35) takes the mound against Zack Wheeler (5-8, 3.90) at 1:10 pm PDT in the rubber match of the series.
