While You Were Drinking: Game 112 (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 won the rubber match of the series with the Yankees, 6-3, making this weekend the most successful regular season series in Padres history. Including the PCL years.*

*Make sure your sarcasm detector is switched on.

Ian Kennedy looked very good in his Padres debut. And Phil Hughes looked like the 2013 edition of Phil Hughes, which is not particularly good.

Monday is an off-day, with the Baltimore Orioles coming to Petco Park. Tuesday, it’s Edinson Volquez wearing his hat at odd angles against the Oriole’s big trade deadline acquisition, Bud Norris, at 7:10pm PDT. And Wednesday, Eric Stults takes the mound versus Miguel Gonzalez at 12:40pm PDT.

Ian Kennedy goes 5 2/3 innings in his Padres debut, striking out six and allowing just two runs on four hits to earn his fourth win.

Everth Cabrera singles to right field to score two runs and increase the Padres’ lead over the Yankees to 3-0 in the second inning.

Looking for a clubhouse leader who can play first base and the corner outfield spots? The Padres have someone who might fit the bill: Mark KotsayWhy not Kotsay? Seriously, why not Kotsay?

Everth Cabrera grabs a ball hit up the middle, spins and makes the toss to second to get the force out and end the top of the sixth. We’re going to miss his defensive skills alone for the next 50 games…
