While You Were Drinking – 2017 Game 51 (SD at WAS)

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 (18-33) scored fewer runs than the Washington Nationals (30-18) yesterday at Nationals Park, 3-0.

Clayton Richard (3-6, 4.33) gave up three runs on ten hits and a walk while striking out five in six innings. Stephen Strasburg scored on a Bryce Harper fielder’s choice in the third inning. Michael Taylor hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning.

Strasburg (6-1, 2.94) shut out the Padres over seven innings, striking out a career-high fifteen against three hits and a walk. The Padres loaded the bases in the first inning, but Strasburg struck out Austin Hedges to end that threat.

Jhoulys Chacin (4-4, 5.74) tries to keep the Padres from being swept today at 10:35am PDT. Joe Ross (2-0, 5.32) starts for the Nationals.
