Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (71-90) scored more runs than the San Francisco Giants (63-98) yesterday afternoon at AT&T Park, 3-2, in the penultimate game of the 2017 season.
Jhoulys Chacin (13-10, 3.89) gave up one run on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts in six innings. Pablo Sandoval scored on a fielder’s choice by Hunter Pence in the second inning. Pence singled in the seventh inning to drive in Ryder Jones.
Matt Cain (3-11, 5.43) shut the Padres out over five innings on two hits and a walk while striking out four in his final appearance before he retires. Wil Myers hit his 30th home run of the season in the sixth inning. Matt Szczur and Cory Spangenberg scored the go-ahead runs on Austin Hedges‘ double in the ninth inning.

Could we gush a little less about Matt Cain?
