Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres lost 4-2 to the Phillies last night in what began as a battle of solo home runs.
Newly called up 1st baseman Tommy Medica hit a bomb in his second at-bat to center field off of Cliff Lee in the fifth inning. Freddy Galvis followed up in the bottom of the same inning with one of his own.
Eric Stults looked much better than he did the previous two starts, which is encouraging.

“It’s definitely a cool thing. You see guys on TV get their first hit and it seems like a lot of them hit home runs.”

Dick Enberg asking the Phillie Phanatic if his green color was due to "a bile problem" has to be his best call with the #Padres.

Seeing a guy get he’s first HR never gets old. Sweet swing Medica. #PPLive

looks like Medica was forced to borrow Kyle Blanks' pants #PPLive

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the Padres won't be playing in the playoffs. Officially eliminated after that loss. #PPlive
