While You Were Drinking 2015 – PHI vs SD (Game 112)

Sometimes, things get a little fuzzy on your day of rest.  Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Philadelphia Phillies (45-67) completed the sweep of San Diego (52-60), 5-3, before 24,156 fans on a lovely Sunday afternoon.  Jerome Williams – who entered the game with an overall ERA over 6 and a road ERA over 8 – allowed one run on five hits over 7 innings.  Like yesterday’s game, the Padres trailed 1-0 after four hitters.  Andrew Cashner pitched reasonably well, allowing 8 hits and striking out four over his 6 and 2/3 innings, but was victimized by a lack of offense and a leaky bullpen.

Highlights of the game included Justin Upton‘s 421’ bomb in the sixth to get San Diego on the board; Alexi Amarista‘s ‘Husband and Wife’ (volleyball term) double in the eighth; Cody Asche robbing Derek Norris of a HR in the seventh; and an excellent snare of a line drive by the LF ball girl.

The Padres have now lost six in a row, and probably seen any hope of making the playoffs extinguished.

Monday the Cincinnati Reds come to town for three games.  Ian Kennedy (6-10, 4.49) will face David Holmberg (1-0, 3.27) in the opener.
