Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (68-92) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (67-93), 5-3, last night in the first of three games at Chase Field.
Edwin Jackson (5-6, 5.77) gave up all five runs in his six innings on six hits and two walks while striking out five. Jean Segura scored on a Welington Castillo single in the first inning. In the third inning, Paul Goldschmidt hit a two-run home run. Chris Owings hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning.
Braden Shipley (4-5. 5.26) allowed three runs on seven hits and two walk in five innings with three strikeouts. In the fourth inning, Ryan Schimpf hit a two-run home run with no outs and two outs later Manuel Margot drove in Luis Sardinas with a double.
