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 (70-87) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (100-57), 9-3, in the first of three games at Dodger Stadium last night.
Travis Wood (4-7, 6.80) allowed six runs on five hits and four walks in four and two-thirds innings while striking out two. Logan Forsythe hit a bases-loaded double in the first inning that scored Chris Taylor, Corey Seager, and Enrique Hernandez. Rob Segedin scored on a sacrifice fly by Taylor in the second inning. In the third inning, Forsythe hit a solo home run. Austin Barnes hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning. Segedin singled in Yasmani Grandal in the eighth inning.
Yu Darvish (10-12, 3.86) gave up one run in seven innings on two hits and no walks with nine strikeouts. Cory Spangenberg scored on a Hunter Renfroe double in the fifth inning. Carlos Asuaje‘s single drove in Austin Hedges and Allen Cordoba ground into a fielder’s choice that scored Matt Szczur in the eighth inning.
Dinelson Lamet (7-7, 4.45) starts tonight’s second game against Alex Wood (15-3, 2.71) beginning at 7:10pm PDT.
