While You Were (Day) Drinking: Game 124 (SD vs NYM)

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

Padres. Will Venable. Walk-off home run.

Any questions?

Eric Stults pitched 6 2/3 innings, giving up 3 runs on 6 hits & 2 walks with 5 K’s. Nick Hundley went 3-for-3 with 1 walk & scored a run.

The Pittsburgh Pirates come to town for three games. Andrew Cashner faces Francisco Liriano tonight at 7:10 pm PDT. Tyson Ross goes against A.J. Burnett on Tuesday night. And Ian Kennedy takes the mound versus Gerrit Cole on Wednesday afternoon.

Chris Denorfia hits an infield single to shortstop that scores Yonder Alonso to level the score at 3 in the eighth inning.

Will Venable leads off the bottom of the ninth inning with a solo home run off Pedro Feliciano to give the Padres a walk-off win.
