While You Were Drinking 2015 Game 2 (SD at LAD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (1-1) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (1-1), 7-3, in the second game of their three-game series at Dodger Stadium to open the season after a 30-minute rain delay pushed the first pitch back to 7:40pm.

Starting pitchers Tyson Ross (0-0, 3.00) and Zack Greinke (0-0, 1.50) each pitched six innings without figuring into the decision. Ross surrendered two earned runs on six hits and three walks with four strikeouts. Greinke gave up just one earned run on two hits and a walk with four strikeouts as well.

Adrian Gonzalez got the Dodgers on the board with an RBI double in the sixth inning to score Yasiel Puig, then scored on a Howie Kendrick single. Gonzalez followed that up in the eighth inning with a solo home run with one out off Joaquin Benoit to tie the game up at three

In the top of the ninth inning, the Friars scored four runs. The first three on a hit from Clint Barmes, a sacrifice bunt by pinch-hitter Cory Spangenberg with an error by Yasmani Grandal, a single from Wil Myers, and a double by Derek Norris, all with no outs. Then, after Matt Kemp struck out and a foul pop fly by Justin Upton, Norris scored the fourth run of the inning on a single from Will Middlebrooks. Newly acquired closer Craig Kimbrel came in to pitch the ninth inning and struck out the side.

Tonight at 7:10pm PDT, the Padres send out Andrew Cashner (0-0, 0.00) against Brandon McCarthy (0-0, 0.00) in the final game of the series.
