While You Were Drinking 2015 Game 27 (SD at SF)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub trying your hardest to not punch everyone right in the nose who says “May the fourth be with you.” Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (14-13) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (13-13) last night at AT&T Park. At least, I think so. Zero is less than two, right? Damn.

Madison Bumgarner (3-1, 3.03) no-hit the Padres into the seventh inning, when Justin Upton laced a single to left field to leadoff the inning. Yangervis Solarte then followed with another single, but that’s was it. Bumgarner then struck out Jedd Gyorko, Will Middlebrooks flied out to center field, and Clint Barmes struck out to end the threat. Bumgarner finished with seven and a third innings pitched with two hits, one walk, and six strikeouts.

Tyson Ross (1-3, 4.15) struggled early to find the plate, surrendering both Giants runs in the third inning. Angel Pagan had an RBI single and Ross walked Justin Maxwell with the bases loaded for the second run. Ross pitched seven innings with seven hits, three walks, and five strikeouts.

Austin Hedges made his Major League debut in a pinch-hitting appearance for Ross in the eighth inning. Unfortunately, Hedges struck out on four pitches.

In the second game of the series tonight, the Giants will send out Ryan Vogelsong (0-2, 9.31) against the Friars and Andrew Cashner (1-4, 2.61) at 7:15pm PDT.

“Keep running! Norris has a noodle arm!”
Giants fan, apparently unaware of Derek Norris‘ defensive prowess this season. (Lin)

“We thought he was our best option against a tough lefty. Every step he takes is going to be a new one for him. That might help him now that he’s got that under his belt.”
Bud Black, on Hedges debut. (Lin)
