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 (22-33) scored more runs than the Chicago Cubs (25-27), 2-1, yesterday at Petco Park, completing the three-game series sweep.
Luis Perdomo (0-2, 5.01) pitched seven innings, allowing one run on three hits and two walks while striking out four. In the second inning, Javier Baez singled to score Anthony Rizzo and Willson Contreras was thrown out trying to take third base for the third out. Winning pitcher Brad Hand and Brandon Maurer pitched two perfect innings of relief.
Jake Arrieta (5-4, 4.60) allowed one run on five hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in six innings pitched. Ryan Schimpf hit a solo home run in the second inning. In the eighth inning, Yangervis Solarte‘s ground ball drove in Franchy Cordero, who had tripled, with the go-ahead run.
The Padres have the day off today. The Colorado Rockies (33-21) come to Petco Park for three games starting tomorrow at 7:10pm PDT. Clayton Richard (3-6, 4.33) gets the start in Friday’s game against German Marquez (4-2, 3.76).
