While You Were Drinking 2015 Game 41 (CHC vs SD)

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

The Padres (20-21) scored fewer runs than the Chicago Cubs (22-17), 3-2, last night at Petco Park.

Tyson Ross (2-4, 3.93) pitched seven innings, allowing all three runs on four hits and three walks with eight strikeouts. The one plus on the night is probably that Ross didn’t allow any home runs.

The Friars were unable to do much of anything against the Cubs’ bullpen. The Cubs used five relievers after starter Tsuyoshi Wada (0-0, 3.86) struck out nine in just four and two-thirds innings on four hits and a walk. Justin Upton was responsible for both Padres’ runs after his two-run home run to center field in the fourth inning.

This evening has Odrisamer Despaigne (2-2, 6.75) taking the mound against Kyle Hendricks (0-1, 5.15) in the final game of the three-game series at 6:10pm PDT.
