Found September 22, 2013 on Padres Public:
Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Friars couldn’t get past the pitching of Clayton Kershaw for the first time this season, with the Dodgers winning 4-0. Kershaw shutout the Padres over 7 innings of 3 hit baseball with 10 K’s. Burch Smith pitched 6 innings with 6 K’s, but also 5 walks and a 2-run home run by A.J. Ellis. Tim Stauffer gave up the other 2 runs in the 7th inning with a 2-run homer run to Yasiel Puig. This afternoon the Padres (72-82) try to take the series with the Dodgers at 1:10pm PDT with Andrew Cashner dressing Zack Greinke.
