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 (70-85) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (83-72), 5-0, last night at Petco Park.
Jhoulys Chacin (13-10, 3.98) gave up one hit and three walks while shutting the Rockies out over six innings with six strikeouts. Craig Stammen, Buddy Baumann, Kirby Yates, and Brad Hand combined to keep the Rockies from crossing the plate over the final three innings.
Chad Bettis (1-4, 5.72) allowed one run on seven hits and two walks in four and two-thirds innings with three strikeouts. Wil Myers scored on a Yangervis Solarte single in the fifth inning. Christian Villanueva‘s pinch-hit infield single brought Cory Spangenberg home in the sixth inning. With the bases loaded in the eighth inning, Erick Aybar ground out but Spangenberg and Austin Hedges scored on Ian Desmond‘s throwing error to home and Travis Jankowski scored on Manuel Margot‘s sacrifice fly.
