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 started their final series in Los Angeles of 2013 with a disappointing — but not surprising — 9-2 loss to the Dodgers last night. Eric Stults pitched okay, giving up 4 runs on 8 hits with no walks & 3 K’s in 5.1 innings. Anthony Bass came out of the bullpen and proceeded to do a pretty good reenactment of Edinson Volquez‘s final Padres start, giving up 5 runs on 5 hits in 1.2 innings.
Speaking of Volquez, he came out of the Dodgers’ bullpen to pitch the 8th, giving up one hit, a Jedd Gyorko double, then retiring the side without giving up a run.

“The results were frustrating. I felt I threw better than the results. The full-count fastball to Ryu and the pitch to Adrian hurt me. I like the pitch I threw to Gonzalez, it just caught more of the plate than I would have liked.”

“It was really embarrassing.”

Bad baserunning/3rd base coaching there by Nick Hundley/Glenn Hoffman.

Makes zero sense to send him there, down 3. Bases loaded, no one out. Ugh. #PPLive

And Volquez promptly gives up a double. You look good in a tilted Dodgers hat, Eddie! #PPLive
