Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a season at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (71-91) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (64-98), 5-4, yesterday afternoon at AT&T Park in the season finale of 2017.

Luis Perdomo (8-11, 4.67) allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk with four strikeouts in seven innings. Buster Posey scored on a groundout by Pablo Sandoval in the second inning. Brandon Crawford hit a double to drive in Denard Span, Posey scored on a single by Jarrett Parker, and a ground out by Nick Hundley scored Crawford in the fourth inning. Sandoval hit a walk-off solo home run off Phil Maton in the ninth inning.

Johnny Cueto (8-8, 4.52) gave up four runs over five innings on twelve hits and no walks while striking out two. Erick Aybar doubled to drive in Travis Jankowski and Aybar scored on a Yangervis Solarte single in the first inning. Hunter Renfroe hit a solo home run in the third inning. Perdomo scored on Jankowski’s single in the fourth inning.

This is my last edition of the While You Were Drinking. Ever.

I don’t know if someone else will take over writing a version of them next year. All I do know is it won’t be me.

Thanks for reading over the last 4+ seasons.

  • Well I for one am sorry to see you stop. You did a great job highlighting the frustration of this fan base in a funny way. Thanks for 4 years of entertainment, on many days reading WYWD was better than watching the Padres actually play.

    I too am sorry to see this stop. This is all a conspiracy to make me join twitter. But thanks for all the material over the years.
