Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. And then, right before you pass out, you see Alexi Amarista taking the mound to pitch. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were unconscious. And your friends were drawing penises on your face.


The Padres (32-36), 2. The Oakland A’s (29-39), 16.


Odrisamer Despaigne (3-5, 4.79), six innings, eight hits, one walk, two strikeouts, and six runs.


Jesse Chavez (3-6, 2.52), seven innings, three hits, one walk, ELEVEN strikeouts, and one run.


Frank Garces, two-thirds of an inning, three hits, one walk, no strikeouts, and three runs.


Cory Mazzoni, two-thirds of an inning, eight hits, one walk, one strikeout, and SEVEN runs.


Alexi Amarista, one-third of an inning, no hits, no walks, no strikeouts, and no runs. That’s right, THE FIVE FEET NOTHING TALL SHORTSTOP PITCHED!


Just click on any of the recaps below for more details. This game was so bad that if I think any more about it my brain will explode and ooze out of my ears.

The Padres try to salvage their dignity in the final game of the series this afternoon at 12:35pm PDT. Ian Kennedy (3-5, 5.84) takes the hill against the Athletic’s Kendall Graveman (3-3, 4.22).
