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

The Padres (19-18) scored zero runs against the Washington Nationals (20-17), who scored ten. It was an ugly, boring game that could be considered cruel and unusual punishment if any Padres fan was ever forced to rewatch it.

Odrisamer Despaigne (2-2, 6.75) lasted just three innings, giving up seven runs on ten hits and two walks with just one strikeout. The only thing you could say that was a positive: Despaigne didn’t allow a home run in those three innings. That honor was reserved for Shawn Kelley, who gave up a home run to Bryce Harper in the fourth inning.

Jordan Zimmerman (3-2, 3.66) combined with A.J. Cole to shutout the Friars. Zimmerman pitched six innings with six hits, a walk, and six strikeouts. Cole gave up just one hit [a two-out single from Yangervis Solarte in the ninth] while pitching the last three innings in relief to record his first Major League save.

This evening, the third of four games pits Andrew Cashner (1-6, 3.07) against Max Scherzer (3-3, 1.99) at 5:40pm PDT. Everyone in attendance will receive a long-sleeved hoodie-style t-shirt.
