While You Were Drinking (Coffee): Game 152 (SD vs PIT) Breakfasttown Edition

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after breakfast baseball and you were stuck at work for the whole thing. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking (coffee, on company-approved break that is).

The Friars walked the plank in their final game this season against Pittsburgh, 10-1, on International Talk Like A Pirate Day.

Of course they did, because they’re the Padres.

Ian Kennedy continues to show how much he really likes pitching in Petco Park, lasting only 3 2/3 innings while giving up 6 runs on 8 hits, 2 of which were home runs.

After Tommy Medica drove in Chris Denorfia for the Padres only run in the first inning, the offense pretty much was shut down by Gerrit Cole and the Pirates bullpen.

Tonight at 7:10pm PDT, the Padres return to face the Dodgers for three games. Robbie Erlin takes the mound against our old friend Edinson Volquez, who we all hope is just as bad as his last start in Petco Park. If not worse.

“We played well on this trip. We went down to Atlanta and won that series, and we came here and played well, but it’s all about how we pitched prior to today. We didn’t pitch well today, but our guys know that if we pitch well, we’ve got a chance to win and our guys kept playing hard.”
Bud Black (Von Benko)




Tommy Medica delivers a two-out single that drives in Chris Denorfia to give the Padres a quick 1-0 lead.

Chris Denorfia fields a fly ball and delivers a strike to the plate to cut down Jose Tabata, completing the double play.

Tony Sanchez goes headfirst into the Padres’ dugout after leaning over the railing to make an impressive grab on a foul popup.
