Well, another game against the Giants, another loss for the Padres. I'm going to be honest and tell you that I turned it off when the Friars came up empty after loading the bases so I could watch the season finale of The Flash. Hell, right now I'd watch season three of Heroes over baseball this bad.
Jeff Samardzija held the Padres to one run in 6.2 innings of work. That one run came on Jon Jay's homer to tie things up in the top of the sixth. Unfortunately, Andrew Cashner gave San Francisco the lead back in the bottom half of the inning. He issued a leadoff walk to Joe Panik, who scored on a one-out double by Buster Posey. Then Posey came around when Brandon Crawford hit an RBI single.
San Diego put together a bit of an effort in the seventh with a little two-out rally. Alexei Ramirez knocked out a single and Christian Bethancourt followed up with a pinch walk. That's when Bruce Bochy pulled his starter in favor of Josh Osich. Jay got to first on interference by the reliever on a slow roller down the line. But Alexi Amarista grounded out to end the rally.
The Padres had another chance in the eighth Matt Kemp led off the inning with a double. But Kemp foolishly tried to stretch it into a triple and committed the cardinal sin of making the first out at third. And then the Giants put the game to bed in the bottom half of the eighth, scoring five runs off Keith Hessler.
The series finale is at 12:45 tomorrow, but no one would blame you if you tuned it out for literally anything else.
