While You Were Drinking: Game 131 (SD vs. AZ)

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 game 1 of the series in Arizona by a score of 6-1 bringing their record to 59-72, 18 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. The final score doesn’t look that good but the game was not without intrigue: Reymond Fuentes made his major league debut in center field. In his first at-bat he hit a hard chopper and showed off his legs, nearly beating it out. I missed the rest of his at-bats though because I had to watch the most recent episode of Breaking Bad which, incidentally, blew my mind. As I switched back to the game and saw the scoreline at 6-1 in the 7th inning, I didn’t feel so bad – and then I turned on Dexter. I’m a terrible fan.

Ian Kennedy faces his old mates today at 6:40 pm when he takes the hill against David Holmberg.

I don’t know if Everth Cabrera would have made this play look easier but Logan Forsythe did well enough.

I wouldn’t ordinarily advocate watching Martin Prado drive in two runs with a single to left field but it’s in Spanish so give it a go.

  • I only saw Fuentes’ first AB. How did he look in the other ABs and in CF?
