A female fan stole the limelight during the San Diego Padres-Atlanta Braves showdown on Tuesday night at Petco Park.
Gabby DiMarco, a 23-year-old California State University San Marcos student, was sitting in the stands during the game when she caught a foul ball from Atlanta's Ender Inciarte in her beer cup.
Then, DiMarco did the unthinkable by drinking the beer out of the cup with the ball still inside it to the delight of her fellow fans.
In an interview with MLB.com, DiMarco, a San Diego native, provided details on how the foul ball landed inside her beer cup.
DiMarco says the ball bounced from behind her before it landed on her beer cup. After the ball landed in her beer cup, DiMarco said everyone around her encouraged her to drink the beer, to which she obliged.
DiMarco's video of downing the beer out the cup with the ball still in it was filmed by her friends and fellow fans. The video went viral after it was tweeted by Petco Park's Twitter account.
DiMarco A Fan Of Beers
"I felt like I won the lottery," DiMarco tells the San Diego Union-Tribune, which reported that the female fan was with her father, her father's girlfriend, and a friend during the game.
When asked about what brand of beer was inside her cup, DiMarco said it was Ballast Point Sculpin, one of her favorite beers. According to DiMarco, she is also a fan of Modern Times beer.
"I love beer," DiMarco admits, adding that she's into the San Diego beer culture due to the city's good beer and breweries.
Padres Rout Braves
Eric Hosmer homered and knocked in three runs to lead the Padres to an 11-4 win over the Braves on Tuesday. Hosmer homered in the first inning and added a two-run double in the fifth inning, where the Padres pulled away by scoring seven runs.
Cory Spangenberg, Raffy Lopez, and Franmil Reyes also helped spark the Padres' offense with solo homers. Clayton Richards (4-6) earned the win after allowing three runs on six hits with two walks and five strikeouts as the Padres improved to 28-34.
Julio Teheran (4-4) took the loss after yielding four runs on five hits with three walks and two strikeouts in two innings of action.
Charlie Culberson was the only bright spot for the Braves, hitting a game-tying two-run double that scored Nick Markakis and Tyler Flowers in the fourth inning. The loss dropped the Braves to 35-25.
