Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (69-85) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (83-71) last night at Petco Park, 4-1.
Jordan Lyles (1-4, 7.23) allowed four runs on five hits and two walks in six innings with seven strikeouts. Lyles retired the first twelve Rockies in the game before Nolan Arenado hit a solo home run to lead off the fifth inning and Ian Desmond hit a solo home run two outs later. Trevor Story led off the seventh inning with a solo home run and Desmond came into score on a single by Jonathan Lucroy.
Jon Gray (9-4, 3.62) gave up one run in six innings on five hits and a walk while striking out eight. Lyles’ single in the fifth inning drove in Travis Jankowski for the Padres’ only run.
Jhoulys Chacin (12-10, 4.12) starts tonight’s game against Chad Bettis (1-3, 6.23) beginning at 5:40pm PDT.
