While You Were Drinking: Game 118 (SD vs. COL)

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.

Last night the Padres were thrashed 14-2 by the Rockies at Coors Field. You might think that you missed absolutely nothing but that’s not entirely true. It rained during the game and prior to a 1 hour rain delay in the 8th inning, viewers witnessed beautiful bolts of lightning illuminating Denver’s summer sky. It was romantic. Picturesque, in fact. And then Jaff Decker bombed a HR to right field, his first major league hit. That’s something, right?

The Padres (53-65) and Eric Stults face the Rockies (56-64)and Jeff Manship today at 5:40 pm.

“Maybe I am tipping my pitches; I have to look at some tape to see what it is,” Volquez said. “It looked like they knew what I was throwing.” [Brock]
