While You Were Drinking: Game 70 (SD vs. SF)

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.

Quote:

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.

Video:

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.

  • I turned it off after T12. Looked what I missed.

    What a grab by Venable.

    • The game jacked my schedule for today but it was well worth it.

        Sleepy. So sleepy. But oh so worth it.

    Thanks for the FanGraphs link … it ends with this *fantastic* observation …

    Perhaps Chris Denorfia captures the essence of the Padres in a nutshell. He does pretty well for himself at the plate. He’s more than capable in the field. He’s quick on the basepaths. He doesn’t do crap on the mound.
