While You Were Drinking (At The Beach) 2014 Game 136 (AZ vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a Labor Day afternoon hanging out at the beach, sneaking swigs of alcoholic beverages from 2-liter soda bottles in an attempt to get around the law.  Allegedly.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (65-71) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks (57-80) 3-1 yesterday.  September callup Cory Spangenberg made his Major League debut with a start at third base, going 1-for-4 with two RBI on his lone hit in the fifth inning, which proved to be the difference in the game.  And, especially considering he’s only been playing third base for about a week in the minors, he made two excellent defensive plays.

Tyson Ross (13-12, 2.60) pitched six innings with one earned run on six hits, two walks, and eight strikeouts.  The D-Backs’ Trevor Cahill (3-10, 5.06) only lasted four-plus innings, giving up all three runs on five hits and six walks with five strikeouts.

Alexi Amarista had the other Padres RBI on a single in the fourth inning.  Kevin Quackenbush struck out the side in the ninth inning for his second save.

Tonight the Friars send Odrisamer Despaigne (3-5, 3.24) to the hill against the D-Backs’ Wade Miley (7-10 4.30) at 7:10 pm PDT.
