The Padres beat the Blue Jays in 17 innings last night

I’ll admit that I didn’t stay up to watch this one, but the Padres and Blue Jays played into the wee small hours of the morning in San Diego. It wasn’t until the bottom of the 17th inning that there was there a winner, as Jesus Guzman singled home Jedd Gyorko to give the Padres a 4-3 win. You can watch video of the walk-off hit here.

It was a long wait for offense in PETCO Park, as the game was tied at 3-3 after the fifth inning. Both teams used eight pitchers and there was a total of 493 pitches thrown. The Padres were forced to use Saturday’s scheduled starter Clayton Richard for the final two innings, so they are now calling up Robbie Erlin to pitch in his place later tonight.

The game took four hours and 58 minutes to complete and ended at 3:11 a.m. ET. It was the longest game for the Padres since 2009 and the longest for the Blue Jays since 2005.

    Some great relief pitching; however, the effect on the bullpens is negative. I expect that both teams will need reinforcements from the minors. As mentioned above, San Diego will have to call up a starter for Sunday’s game. For the Jays, Sunday’s starter is also problematical as Morrow is still having arm problems. They used Esmil Rogers only as a pinch hitter (he is a decent bunter) as he may have to start on Sunday. I Expect Redmond who pitched almost 4 innings to be sent down by the Jays and possibly be replaced by Schwimmer.

      This game was lost on errors, not because of anything thing the Padres did. JP Arencibia threw away the ball and allowed the tying run to come in. That was it for the scoring until the 17th inning. Crappy defence has cost our boys this game and WAY too many games overall.

      I’m stunned no one’s talking about Rasmus. Not only the 2 run homer, but did you see that catch? ROBBED Yonder Alonzo of a homer with a great catch, pulling one back from over the wall. I give this kid a lot of crap but you cannot fault his defence. Of all the Beavz, his is the surest glove. What’s more, that bat of his, once SO ice cold you could see the liquid nitrogen haze around it, has nearly reached room temperature. He keeps this up, and I may start being nice to him.

      E5 had an E5. Not really his fault, though. He made a pretty good throw, it skipped in the dirt and HIT Adam Lind in the glove before skipping away to allow the runner to reach. Any ball that hits the 1B on or around the glove and isn’t caught is on 1B not the 3B as far as I’m concerned. That error should be changed to E3 on Lind.

        Glad you saw the game. I was in bed.

        Morrow has just gone on the DL.

        Jeez

      • proudlycanadian - Jun 1, 2013 at 12:33 PM

        Ortiz has been recalled, but Rogers is likely to get the start.

        would you like some cheese with that whine?

      • cur68 - Jun 1, 2013 at 1:52 PM

        From you? Good Lord, no. You aint bathed since Jesus was a Chid-ren. Besides, all that poo flingin’ y’do has left stuff under your nails. I’ve told you about picking your tooth with out washing your hands, right?

        Anyhow, thanks for playing, ‘harry. Check in with your parole officer soon, eh? And when you do, bathe first. It’ll go a long way to getting you a better note about the visit. I’m sure he gets tired of writing “Harry smells of own crap” all the time.

      • dirtyharry1971 - Jun 1, 2013 at 7:00 PM

        keep on whinning away cur, thats about all you do on here. Tired act really

      • cur68 - Jun 1, 2013 at 7:45 PM

        Holy crap, man! Did you LICK your self “clean”??? Jeez. “Go Wash” means use soap and water, NOT your effluvia.

    • dirtyharry1971 - Jun 1, 2013 at 1:30 PM

      what you should expect is to find the jays in last place in the AL East, hey at least they are easy to find in the standings cause you know exactly where to look

    Why didn’t Bud Black use his closer Huston Street, instead preferring to disrupt his starting rotation? Was Street unavailable for some reason? I know he’s been struggling, but the guy’s pitched once since May 20, which was one inning on Wednesday. And the starter Black used instead, Clayton Richard, was sporting a 8.35 ERA with 18 BBs and 16 Ks in 32.1 innings, which is arguably worse than Street. Why couldn’t Bud Black have gotten at least an inning out of Street before turning to Richard?

    • proudlycanadian - Jun 1, 2013 at 11:47 AM

      Street was not available due to left calf soreness.

        as if it even matters

    this game started in may and ended in june

    It’s funny because it was Girl Scouts Night there and 1,000 of them planned on camping out after the game. Padres made them stay up way past their bedtime.

    • gloccamorra - Jun 1, 2013 at 1:11 PM

      Where were they going to camp out – in the outfield? Did they bring tents? I can imagine with four to a tent, there would be 250 fire pits the outfielders would have to avoid.

    Glad I didn’t stay up to watch this one. Turned it off after the Padres tied it up in the 5th, never expecting it would go 12 more innings. Game ended at around 4 AM here. I was already tired when it started at 11:00 PM so I was half watching it and half dozing off, and my mind wandered to some random thoughts:

    – Nice HR by Rasmus followed immediately by him stealing one from the Padres, and nice tip of the batting helmet from Alonso after the catch.

    – WTH was J.P. thinking to throw away that ball in the 5th? The runner was damn near to 3rd when he did.

    – Got to thinking, after watching the Padres send Yonder Alonso (is that a great name or what?) and Yasmani Grandal to the plate… how many teams have back-to-back guys whose first names start with Y? Hell, how many guys ARE there whose first names start with Y? Turns out there are 10 in the majors, and not only do the Padres have two of them, so do the Brewers. Who knew? And they’re all Latin players save for Mr. Darvish in Texas. The things that go through your mind at 12:30 AM…

    • cur68 - Jun 1, 2013 at 12:28 PM

      Pfft. Sorry man. Didn’t see this, otherwise I’d have just commented on yours. Anyhow, agree on re. JP in the 5th. He cost Our Boys this game. What’s more, his bat DID NOT HELP.

      Regarding all the “Y” names in MLB, excepting Darvish, I wonder how many of those names will be Cuban or the like? There was quite a fad during Communistic times for naming the chid-ren some version of “Yuri”. Hence we have our “Yunels”, “Yuniesky”, etc. The rest, like “Yonder” (who’s also from Cuba, too) are “close to Yuri” names. That leading “Y” was and is quite a fad there.

      • gloccamorra - Jun 1, 2013 at 1:13 PM

        You left out Yonder’s teammate, fellow Cuban Yasmani, which is kind of an odd name for a guy.

      • dirtyharry1971 - Jun 1, 2013 at 7:01 PM

        more whine from cur “yawn”

    • dirtyharry1971 - Jun 1, 2013 at 7:02 PM

      why would it matter how late the game is? Jays are losing in the day time as much as they lose at night. this team is the biggest bust in MLB history

  6. afirst916 - Jun 1, 2013 at 1:23 PM

    Do the padres play pennywise after every game? Because that’s awesome

  7. dirtyharry1971 - Jun 1, 2013 at 1:33 PM

    hey the jays are 9 games below .500 and in last place!! What a shocker!!! Hey you got Buehrle going tonight, i fully expect him to have the game of his season against the pads which will further back up my claim that he is a NL pitcher at this point in his career

    • cur68 - Jun 1, 2013 at 1:53 PM

    My pops and I sat through all 17 innings.. never been so frustrated with a ballgame! But the rookie for the pads was on fire last night.
