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 (27-40) scored more runs than the Cincinnati Reds (29-36) in yesterday’s series finale at Petco Park, 4-2.
Jhoulys Chacin (6-5, 5.10) allowed two runs on five hits and a walk in seven inning while striking out four. Jose Peraza led off the game with a home run in the first inning. Joey Votto hit a solo home run in the fourth inning.
Amir Garrett (3-5, 6.91) pitched six innings, giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks with eight strikeouts. Hunter Renfroe hit a monstrous two-run home run in the sixth inning. In the seventh inning, Franchy Cordero‘s single scored Matt Szczur and Jose Pirela scored on Renfroe’s groundout.
The Padres are off today as they travel to Miller Park to take on the Milwaukee Brewers (34-32) for three game starting tomorrow at 5:10pm PDT. Miguel Diaz (1-1, 6.92) starts Friday’s game against Junior Guerra (1-1, 2.45).
