While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 101 (SD at CH(N))

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night at the pub.  Especially when in the Gaslamp on Comic-Con week.  Here’s a friendly reminder of what you missed while drinking with that Smoking Hot Captain Marvel.

The Padres batted around in the sixth.  I actually witnessed it with my own eyes.  Everybody who came to the plate scored a run at some point during the inning. Nine runs in an inning is a season high for San Diego.  It wasn’t a dominating display of power; instead, a wonderful display of place hitting and a little luck.  Balls put in play were sharply hit and just out of the reach of Cubs infielders.

For the game, every Padre starter hit safely, including winning pitcher Tyson RossEdwin Jackson takes the loss.  Brian Schlitter got roughed up pretty good in that glorious sixth inning.  San Diego wins the series, 2-1.

San Diego takes a happy flight redeye to Atlanta for a weekend stanza with the Braves.  Jesse Hahn is scheduled to face Alex Wood in the opener.

Quote

The nine runs were the most scored since also scoring nine on July 20, 2011 against the Marlins. The eight hits were the most since matching the eight on Sept. 16 of last year. The 15 plate appearances were a first since sending 15 to bat against the Astros on July 28, 2007. – Kramer, MLB.com
