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 (68-93) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (68-93) last night in the second of three games at Chase Field, 9-5.
Clayton Richard (3-4, 3.33) gave up seven runs (four earned) on six hits and four walks in four and a third innings while striking out one batter. With the bases loaded and no outs in the first inning, Jean Segura scored on a passed ball, Brandon Drury hit an RBI single, and Yasmany Tomas hit a three-run home run. In the fifth inning, Segura scored again on a Chris Owings sacrifice fly and Paul Goldschmidt stole third base and scored on an error by Yangervis Solarte. Segura scored yet again in the seventh inning on another Owings sacrifice fly. Mitch Haniger hit a solo home run in the eighth inning.
Archie Bradley (8-9, 5.02) pitched seven innings, surrendering two runs on seven hits and no walks with eleven strikeouts. Solarte scored the Padres’ first run on a single by Carlos Asuaje in the second inning. In the third inning, Solarte’s double drove in Wil Myers. Jon Jay led off the eighth inning with a triple and scored on Myers single, Myers scored on a Hunter Renfroe double, and Renfroe scored on Derek Norris‘ single.
