While You Were Drinking: Game 159 (SD vs AZ)

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.

Robbie Erlin pitched 7 excellent innings, giving up 2 runs on just 3 hits and a walk with 7 K’s. Alexi Amarista hit a bases loaded game-winning RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning.

The final series of the the season begins tonight in San Francisco with 3 games against the Dickhats Giants. Burch Smith takes the mound against Ryan Vogelsong at 7:15pm.
