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.
The Padres lost to the Colorado Rockies 4-2 last night, their 10th consecutive defeat. Edinson Volquez was Edinson Volquez and the Padres are now 40-50.

Two up, two down: Rockies 4, Padres 2 – Jeff Sanders (U-T)
“For the most part, it hadn’t been sloppy baseball that’s getting us, it’s been a tough stretch,” said third baseman Chase Headley. “We got to find a way to score more runs than them, but it’s not like we’re playing bad baseball.” [Collier]
If Bud Black takes his 2nd .500 ball club and pilots them thru another 10 game losing streak, will he get Manager of The Year again? #PPLive

Do you know how many outs there would be if Venable didn't bunt? Probably 1 still. #PPLive

[Bud Black quote is in reference to line drives going directly at fielders and not the 10 game losing streak itself.]
Edinson Volquez tries to do a sweet little shovel pass to Rene Rivera on a safety squeeze. It was terrible.
And all hopes rested on the shoulders of Mark Kotsay. You know how that story ended.
Listen to Bud Black discuss Edinson Volquez’s performance. Bud is mesmerizing.
