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 (23-38) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (37-25) yesterday at Chase Field, 15-3, getting swept by the Diamondbacks in their three game series.
Clayton Richard (4-7, 4.54) gave up four runs on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts in five innings. The Padres bullpen was the real loser, as Kevin Quackenbush, Kirby Yates, and Brandon Maurer combined to give up eleven runs in two innings (Maurer didn’t record an out). Read the box score below to get the details because I just don’t have the strength. Erick Aybar ended up pitching (again) and got three outs in the eighth inning.
Patrick Corbin (5-6, 5.38) pitched five and two-thirds innings, surrendering three runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out eight. In the first inning, Austin Hedges‘ bases loaded single scored Yangervis Solarte and Wil Myers. Hunter Renfroe hit an RBI double in the third, driving in Myers.
The Padres come back to Petco Park for three interleague games against the Kansas City Royals (26-32) starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Jhoulys Chacin (4-5, 5.65) gets the start tonight versus Eric Skoglund (1-1, 4.32).

Every fucking run with 2 outs, what an embarrasing set of pitchers

Field a major league team.

This level of playing is not sustainable for your fans. It is garbage, embarrassing, and cringe worthy. Day in, and day out.
