While You Were Drinking: Game 153 (LA vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Dodgers clinched the NL West yesterday, leading to a pool party in Arizona. It also lead to something a bit less than the “A” lineup from them when the Padres returned home for the final homestand of the season. Be that as it may, Robbie Erlin tossed a gem against the Los Angeles Isotopes going 7.2 IP, walking 1 and striking out 7 and not giving up a run.

On the offensive side, Gyorko did Gyorko things, going deep to dead center field against everyone’s favorite hat wearing starting pitcher Edinson Volquez. For his part, Volquez did what Volquez does.

The Padres continue to play solid baseball and look to continue to end the season on a high note tomorrow when more of the Padres youth movement, Burch Smith, takes the mound on Padres/Xolos scarf night.

“Jedd’s intent is to hit. He thinks he can get anything, which is good,” Padres manager Bud Black said. “Twenty home runs as a rookie, that’s real.”
