The Hangover 2020 – Games 52-54
Padres vs Seattle Mariners @ Petco Park
September 18-20, 2020
Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a couple of days of trying to login to Zoom meetings with fellow Padres fans. The occasional memory refresher can come in handy. Here’s a friendly reminder of what we may have missed while we were stuck in quarantine.
This is The Hangover.
Note: This series was played in San Diego because of poor air quality in and around Seattle due to wildfires in the Pacific Northwest. The Mariners played as the home team and the Padres were the road team.
Padres 6, Mariners 1
