Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a morning at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (50-64) scored fewer runs than the Cincinnati Reds (48-67) yesterday, 10-3, in the finale of four games at Great American Ballpark.
Dinelson Lamet (6-4, 5.12) gave up two runs on three hits and three walks in five innings with five strikeouts. Tucker Barnhart hit a two-run double in the second inning. In the seventh inning, with one out, Kirby Yates walked a batter, hit the next one, and went to two balls & two strikes against Joey Votto before Brad Hand was brought in. Hand walked Votto to load the bases and one out later Scooter Gennett hit a grand slam and Eugenio Suarez hit a solo home run back-to-back. In the eighth inning, Zack Cozart hit a two-run home run and Votto hit a solo home run back-to-back off Phil Maton.
Luis Castillo (2-5, 3.64) allowed three runs on six hits and three walks with four strikeouts in six innings. Wil Myers hit a solo home run in the fourth inning. In the fifth inning, Cory Spangenberg‘s double drove in Luis Torrens and Jose Pirela singled to drive in Spangenberg.
The Padres head to Dodger Stadium for three games against the Los Angeles Dodgers (80-33) beginning tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Clayton Richard (5-12, 5.17) gets the start tonight against Rich Hill (8-4, 3.47).

Unorthodox. Andy Green pulls Kirby Yates with a 2-2 count on Joey Votto to bring in his closer with one out in the 7th.

Andy Green just called on Brad Hand, mid-at-bat, to face Joey Votto. Strange. It's a 2-2 count.

Whoa. Brad Hand just gave up a Grand Slam and the #Padres lead.

Andy Green hates Brad Hand

I can't wait to hear what Andy Green says about that switch

Urban Dictionary definition of a Brotato is a punch to the balls during a Hand job. For the tank, today was a Fortuitous Brotato.

Sleight of Hand doesn't do the trick as the Padres fall in Cincy.

it is difficult to win when you give up non-stop home runs and have no offense of your own #Padres

I love when you guys do GIFs of players on defense when describing something they did on offense.
— Caleb Norman (@CalebBMX89) August 10, 2017
That took me way longer to get than I'd like to admit.

Why does this matter, Padres are 30 games out, they will not even finish close to a 500 season, they suck, stop accepting mediocrity.

When you just wake up and the Padres already lost
