While You Were Drinking: Game 96 (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.

After Tim Lincecum no-hit the Padres Saturday, we fans needed a win. And, boy, did we ever get one!

The Padres treated Barry Zito like he was one of the uninvited house guests that we all consider San Francisco Giants fans to be. Zito lasted just 2+ innings in the Padres 10-1 win.

The Padres record is now 42-54. They’re 8 1/2 games back of the division leading Arizona Diamondbacks.

Now, the Padres have 4 days off for the All-Star break. Except Everth Cabrera, that is.

The 2013 All-Star Game is Tuesday, starting at 5pm PDT, from Citi Field in New York.

The Padres next game is Friday, July 19 in St Louis against the Cardinals. Jason Marquis faces Jake Westbrook at 5:15pm PDT.

I know it’s not Padres-related, but this ceremonial first pitch at the Tampa Bay Rays game from Carly Rae Jepsen of “Call Me Maybe” infamy makes me laugh:


Hey I just saw you
At the Rays game
That pitch was awful
You should feel some shame

via The Outside Corner


Marco Scutaro made the 1st inning look a whole lot like the last 3 weeks with his RBI single.

Chris Denorfia went Norf on Zito with his solo home run in the 1st.

Nick Hundley went Norf on Zito with a solo home run in the 2nd. Then Will Venable made it back-to-back Norfs on Zito.

And Carlos Quentin went Norf with a 2-run blast in the 5th.
