Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a long night at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (71-80) came back against the Pirates in the ninth inning to pull out the victory, 3-2. Rene Rivera had a great game both behind and at the plate, throwing out Andrew McCutchen and Felix Pie on the basepaths and hitting the go-ahead run in the ninth against Pirates closer Mark Melancon.

“There is no rhyme or reason. If we knew it, we would try to bottle it and take it elsewhere. I wish I could explain it.”

I want to spend a quiet night at home with Enberg's blooper reel. Throw in some wine. A fire. Maybe a joint. #PPLive

Weird seeing stuff like "suck it, Pittsburgh" from Padres fans. We have no history with them. They'll be playing October baseball, too.
