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 (13-17) scored more runs than the New York Mets (17-11), 2-0, in the second game of four at Petco Park last night. The win was the first shutout of the season for Friars.

Drew Pomeranz (3-3, 2.12) allowed just one hit and three walks with five strikeouts over five innings. Kevin Quackenbush, Ryan Buchter, Brandon Maurer, and Fernando Rodney each pitched a scoreless inning of relief.

Noah Syndergaard (2-2, 2.58) pitched six innings, allowing both Padres’ runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five. Matt Kemp hit a sacrifice fly to score Jon Jay in the first inning. Jay hit an RBI single in the fifth inning to score Jemile Weeks.

Tonight starting at 5:40pm PDT, James Shields (1-4, 3.23) takes the mound against Bartolo Colon (2-1, 2.56).

  • I look forward to ‘Wine Fest sponsored by UPS’ at a future Friday night pregame.

    • I was surprised at how many people made the UPS joke compared to the Poop joke. And that thought they were being original making that joke.

        *sigh*. The people saying such things weren’t born yesterday, it only seems that way. There was a guy on Twitter who saw a pound key (#) on an old 1990 phone and wondered why there was a hashtag on it, since Twitter hadn’t been invented yet.

    Well, I’m encouraged that our number four and five starters faced a consensus contender, who couldn’t get more than three hits off either one of them. I’m slightly less encouraged by the bullpen Thursday, but they bounced back Friday to give us the kind of shutdown bullpen performances we’ve been spoiled to expect in recent years.

    Overall, this is a decent pitching, defensively solid team with enough offense (when Solarte and Spangenberg return) to think of a .500 or better season. It kind of makes me wonder if they’ll be playing well enough in July to tie Preller’s hands at the trade deadline. The coming trip to Wrigley might answer that question.
