While You Were Drinking: Game 111 (SD vs NYY)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres lost 3-0, as the offense died a slow death against Ivan Nova. Tyson Ross pitched well enough to win, allowing only 2 runs on just 3 hits with a career high 9 strikeouts in 6 innings. Just so happened that one of those 3 hits was a 2-run home run by Curtis Granderson.

The series finale is tomorrow at 1:10pm PDT, with newly acquired Ian Kennedy taking on Phil Hughes.

In other news, the Padres signed veteran infielder Ronny Cedeno to a minor league deal and assigned him to Class A Lake Elsinore. Cedeno is expected to provide organizational depth at the infield positions if and when Everth Cabrera is suspended for his involvement with Biogenesis.

Quote

 “I think from Josh’s standpoint that we have to make sure that we’re covered. I think I’ve heard other managers echo this and other GMs. We don’t know for sure really what’s going to happen. But in case that happens, by the signing of Cedeno that gives us some coverage at shortstop if needed.”

    When is the starter a reliever? When it’s the Padres. Excuse me, who?
