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 defeated the Diamondback 5-1 last night, with Robbie Erlin coming up from AAA Tucson to make the start in place of new Dodgers punching bag Edinson Volquez. Erlin pitched six innings, allowing just one run on six hits with two K’s.
The Padres are off today. They travel to Los Angeles to play three games against the Dodgers starting Friday. Eric Stults is scheduled to face Hyun-Jin Ryu on Friday. Andrew Cashner faces Chris Capuano on Saturday. And Tyson Ross gets Zack Greinke on Sunday.
(Rumor has it that Volquez could take Capuano’s spot in the rotation, so this all is subject to change.)

“I’m really trying to keep it simple; throw strikes with four pitches. But it comes down to executing. Executing [pitches] gets outs.”

Erlin looks more and more like he's ready at the MLB level. #PPLive

I will always love Heath Bell. And so will hitters. #PPLive
