Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a couple of days of partying with fellow Padres fans in the Gaslamp. The occasional memory refresher can come in handy. Here’s a friendly reminder of what we may have missed while we were drinking.
The Padres scored more runs than the San Francisco Giants in the first game of the 2019 season, 2-0. Padres’ starting pitcher Eric Lauer pitched six shutout innings while giving up four hits and a walk with three strikeouts. Left fielder Wil Myers was responsible for both runs allowed by the Giants’ Madison Bumgarner, hitting a solo home run in the third inning and an RBI single to bring second basemen Ian Kinsler home in the sixth inning. Third baseman Manny Machado went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts. Rookie shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. went 2-for-3, hitting a single in his first MLB at-bat in the second inning and reaching on a bunt attempt in the fourth inning.
