Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
Last night the Padres won their 7th game in a row, defeating the Giants 5-3 in 13 innings.

The Padres played with a short bench on Monday night making the late innings . . . challenging.
“Cabby’s got a mild hamstring strain. We’ll keep an eye on it. Hopefully, we’ll get to a point where we decide whether to put him on the disabled list. Same thing with Q. We’ll give him a day or two and evaluate his status.”(Jenkins)

This is as good of a catch as you will ever see . . .
. . . and it saved the game in the 12th inning. Good job Will.
With a depleted bench, Bud Black sent Andrew Cashner up to bat in the top of the 13th inning, with runners on 1st and 3rd. On a 1-0 pitch Cash dropped down a perfect bunt plating Alexi Amarista with the go ahead run.
