Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (65-79) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (83-60) yesterday, 3-2, in their series finale at Chase Field.
Luis Perdomo (7-10, 4.61) gave up three runs — all via solo home runs — on five hits and two walks while striking out four in six innings. J.D. Martinez led off the second inning with a solo home run. Paul Goldschmidt hit a solo home run in the fourth inning. And Martinez hit a second solo home run in the sixth inning.
Robbie Ray (13-5, 2.81) allowed two runs on four hits and two walks with twelve strikeouts in six innings. Jabari Blash scored on a single by Luis Torrens in the second inning. Jose Pirela scored on Yangervis Solarte‘s sacrifice fly in the sixth inning.

Perdomo is a joke. When is this pitching staff going to learn from their mistakes? Stop pitching to Martinez!

If our fucking pitching staff could just keep the opposition IN THE YARD, we'd be in the World Series.

Time for me to bandwagon on the Cleveland Indians, winners of 17 straight!
