While You Were Drinking: Game 71 (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 7 game win streak came to an end as the Giants took game 2 of the series 5-4. They meet today at 12:45 for the rubber game: Eric Stults for San Diego and Madison Bumgarner for San Francisco.

Two up, two down: Giants 5, Padres 4 – Jeff Sanders (U-T San Diego)


“Cain had probably more than we’ve seen in a long time, a wide assortment of pitches,” Black said. “He was really mixing his pitches and we couldn’t solve him. Then he left some pitches up [for home runs], and we put a little stress on him.” [Brock]

I am not offended by either episode of emotion. You?


Jesus Guzman’s HR didn’t end up winning the game like we had hoped but it sure is worth a look.
