Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (15-30) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (26-18) last night at Petco Park, 9-1.

Luis Perdomo (0-1, 5.79) finally got his first decision of 2017, but he did it the hard way. Perdomo lasted just three innings, giving up eight runs on eleven hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Chris Owings and David Peralta scored on a Paul Goldschmidt single, Goldschmidt scored on a Jake Lamb double, and Chris Herrmann hit a two-run home run, all in the first inning. In the second inning, Yasmany Tomas‘ bases loaded single drove in Peralta and Goldschmidt. Peralta scored again in the fourth inning on Lamb’s single. In  the ninth inning, Brandon Maurer threw a wild pitch to Rey Fuentes, allowing Lamb to score.

Robbie Ray (3-3, 3.91) shutout the Padres over seven and two-thirds innings on just two hits and three walks while striking out six. Luis Sardinas hit an infield single with the bases loaded in the ninth inning to drive in Hunter Renfroe.

This afternoon’s series finale, starting at 1:40pm PDT, will have Clayton Richard (2-5, 4.86) taking the mound against Zack Godley (1-0, 1.93).

Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (15-29) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (25-18), 10-1, last night in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Jered Weaver (0-5, 7.44) stunk. Seven earned runs on five hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning. In fact, he surpassed Edinson Volquez‘ Padres record for futility.*

Fortunately, Dustin has already written a summation of Weaver’s not-even-an-inning of work, so I won’t bother with that. Craig Stammen pitched three and a third innings of relief, with David Peralta leading off the sixth inning with a solo home run and Jake Lamb hit his second bomb of the night one out later. In lighter news, Luis Sardinas pitched a shutout ninth inning of relief. So at least they had that going for them. Which is nice.

Taijuan Walker (4-3, 3.46) shut out the Padres over six innings on two hits and three walks while striking out three. Allen Cordoba scored the Padres lone run in the ninth inning on Ryan Schimpf‘s single.

Tonight’s second game pits Luis Perdomo (0-0, 4.19) against Robbie Ray (2-3, 4.57) starting at 7:10pm PDT.

*I have no idea if that’s actually a record. But it was the worst pitching performance I’ve ever seen from a Padre, until last night that is.

Jarred Cosart (0-1, 2.70) gave up just one run on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in five innings pitched, a Eric Sogard single to drive in Orlando Arcia in the fifth inning, but the Padres’ bullpen blew it once again. This time, Ryan Buchter allowed two runs that were charged to Kevin Quackenbush to cross the plate. In the seventh inning, Sogard doubled in Keon Broxton and Arcia.  Broxton scored again in the ninth inning on a Jonathan Villar groundout.

The Padres (13-21) scored fewer runs than the Texas Rangers (14-20), 11-0, at Petco Park yesterday.

Jered Weaver (0-4, 6.81), not to put to fine a point on it, sucked. Weaver allowed seven runs on six hits and two walks in three innings, striking out four. Two of those four hits were home runs, a three-run shot by Ryan Rua in the second inning and a two-run blast in the third inning by Joey Gallo. Kevin Quackenbush gave up another two-run home run by Robinson Chirinos in the seventh inning.

A.J. Griffin (4-0, 2.45) pitched a complete game shutout, giving up four hits and a walk while striking out four.
