While You Were Ducking For Cover 2015 Game 36 (WAS vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub trying to stay out of the rain. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (19-17) scored more runs than the Washington Nationals (19-17), 8-3, after a nearly two-hour rain delay between the first batter of the game and the second batter.

Tyson Ross (2-3, 3.94) gave up two runs five hits and three walks with six strikeouts in his five innings pitched.

Doug Fister (2-2, 4.31) was hit hard, pitching just two innings while giving up seven runs on eight hits and a walk with just one strikeout. Derek Norris homered in the first inning, scoring Matt Kemp and Justin Upton. Norris then followed up with a two-RBI triple in the second inning. Cory Spangenberg hit two solo home runs, in the second inning and the fourth inning.

Tonight at 7:10pm PDT (weather permitting), Odrisamer Despaigne (2-1, 5.13) takes on Jordan Zimmerman (2-2, 4.20) in the second game of the four-game series.
