While You Were Drinking (and Watching Stuff Blow Up) 2014 Game 86 (SF vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub and an evening watching stuff explode in all the pretty colors of the rainbow.  Because, America.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (39-47) defeated the San Francisco Giants (47-39) 2-0 in the first of three games at PETCO Park to win their fifth game in a row.  Eric Stults (3-11, 4.96) pitched a gem, lasting seven innings four hits, two walks, and six strikeouts to earn the win.

Matt Cain (1-7, 4.27) gave up the two Padres’ runs in the third inning.  One from Alexi Amarista‘s solo home run and the other thanks to Chase Headley‘s two-out RBI single to score Seth Smith.

The Friars try to extend their winning streak to six this evening, with Odrisamer Despaigne (2-0, 0.66) taking on Tim Hudson (7-5, 2.59) at 4:15 pm PDT.  For those not going to the game to get a complimentary beach bag, the game is going to be on the FOX network (Fox 5 San Diego, for those in San Diego), not Fox Sports San Diego.
