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 (70-90) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (63-97), 8-0, last night at AT&T Park in the first of three games to wrap up the 2017 season.
Jordan Lyles (1-5, 7.75) did not have a good night (#analysis), allowing seven runs on ten hits and a walk with five strikeouts in three and two-thirds innings. Joe Panik scored on Buster Posey‘s double, Posey scored on a single by Brandon Crawford, and Crawford scored on Pablo Sandoval‘s double in the first inning. In the fourth inning, Panik doubled in Hunter Pence, Posey’s ground-rule double drove in Panik, and Crawford singled to drive in Denard Span & Posey. Pence came home in the sixth inning on Posey’s double.
Chris Stratton (4-4, 3.68) had a slightly better night (#analysis), giving up zero runs over six and two-thirds innings on seven hits and two walks with seven strikeouts.
