September 25-27, 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.
Giants 5, Padres 4 (7 Innings)
Winning Pitcher: Tyler Anderson (4-3, 4.37)

The Padres (24-23) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (29-28), 5-4 in seven innings, in the first game of a doubleheader and their four-game series at Oracle Park.
