Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an early evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Friars defeated the Diamondbacks in 11 innings by score of 3-2 in yesterday’s final game at Petco Park of 2013. Mark Kotsay received a nice send off from both the Padres and the fans in his last home game before he retires after Sunday’s game.

“Any team will tell you they feel better at home, so it’s good to see that we did it on the field. This is a good ballpark to play in, our guys like playing here and our fans are great.”

is it bad to say I don't get the Kotsay hype and figured he would likely K right there? #PPLive

Alexi Amarista is insanely jealous of the route Pollock just took. #PPLive

The Padres salute Mark Kotsay before the game by giving him a surfboard and letting him run onto the field by himself.
