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 dropped Game 1 of their four game set against the NoCal CarpetBaggers by a 4-2 score. San Diego got 2 runs in the first and two hits the rest of the way. Jason Marquis worked an effective first five innings, struck out Buster Posey to start the sixth, then lost his release point. San Francisco eventually tied the game in the inning.
Luke Gregerson had another forgettable outing, giving up three hits and hitting a batter. He was charged with two runs and the loss. Rookie Giant Kensuke Tanaka stole his first major league base. Jesus Guzman was intentionally walked for the first time since last September.
Padres will try again tomorrow.

“With Luke, a lot of times, it’s about how the rotation is on his slider,” Padres manager Bud Black said of Gregerson, who has allowed 11 runs and 26 hits over his last 15 1/3 innings. “There’s been a little inconsistent work over the past month. Luke’s got a great head on his shoulders. He knows what he needs to do.” (Sanders)
I'm in the kitchen. 5-yr-old yells "Dad come look at this really fat guy!" I look at the TV. Pablo Sandoval is up. Kid got ice cream #PPLive

Tell you what ~ You give Norf a Swiss Army knife and five minutes and he'd turned that orange into a replica of Fenway Park.
