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 3-2 in in 13 innings, after stranding 15 base runners while going 1 for 17 with RISP. In short, the offense blew.
Ian Kennedy threw another gem, making only one mistake that pinch-hitter Xavier Paul turned into a 2-run home run that tied the game at 2 in the eighth inning. Kennedy allowed only 3 hits in 8 innings with 3 strikeouts & 2 walks.
But that offense…
The Padres next go to Denver to face the Colorado Rockies for 3 games. Edinson Volquez faces Jhoulys Chacin tomorrow at 5:40pm PDT. Eric Stults gets Jeff Manship Tuesday at 5:40pm PDT. And Andrew Cashner goes up against Jorge De La Rosa on Wednesday at 12:10pm PDT.

“We didn’t get the key hit. We couldn’t advance runners. Whether our guys are trying too hard or squeezing the bats . . . we have to improve . . . we have to do a better job.”
Bud Black (Center)
Cedeno has a nice arm. He's a "true short stop". Analysis. #Padres

If Enberg ever had to call an entire game by himself, it would probably be the most hilarious three hours of baseball in history.

Does a pitcher really get tired standing on second base? Either way, definitely time for the DH in the NL.

This is what you get for stranding a billion runners on base Padres.

When your whole lineup hits singles, when they hit at all, well then @padres

(Look very closely at that picture. Note how and where the tag is applied and where Amarista is in relation to the second base bag. The umpire blew that one. Blew it royally.)
Ian Kennedy goes eight dominant innings vs. the Reds, striking out three and allowing just two runs and two walks in a no-decision.
