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

The Padres (33-46) scored fewer runs than the Baltimore Orioles (47-30), 12-6, getting swept in a quick two-game series at Petco Park.

Christian Friedrich (4-3, 3.96) gave up six runs (four earned) in five innings on five hits and two walks while striking out seven. Jonathan Schoop doubled in the fourth inning to score Adam Jones. Schoop then scored on a Manny Machado single and Machado then scored on a Mark Trumbo two-run home run. In the fifth inning, a throwing error charged to Friedrich brought Yovani Gallardo and Schoop in to score. Andy Green came out to argue that Chris Davis was out of the basepaths and was thrown out of the game.

Ryan Buchter started the ninth inning and had five runs scored against him: Two on a Machado ground-rule double and two more on another double by Trumbo. Trumbo then scored when Joey Rickard ground into a fielder’s choice.
