While You Were Drinking: Game 85 (SD vs. BOS)

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.

It was another rough one to watch last night, as the Padres lost in walk-off fashion 2-1 to extend their losing streak to 5 games. Edinson Volquez went 6 strong innings but the offense and bullpen spoiled his birthday win.

The Padres are now 5 games under .500 at 40-45, yet are in 4th place and only 3.5 games back in the NL West. With 4 games separating  all 5 teams in the division, the race is still wide open.

Eric Stults looks to help end the Padres current skid, as he takes on Allen Webster today at 10:35AM in the finale at Fenway.

Happy 4th of July to everyone out there and be safe today!

Quote:

“It was a gutty performance,” said Padres manager Bud Black of Volquez’s outing. “I liked the no walks. The curveball tonight was the key for Eddie. He had a good change at times. He threw the ball great.” [Brock]
