Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening at the second Padres Beerfest of the season.  Fans had a chance to be among the first to try the new Tony Gwynn’s 394 San Diego Pale Ale brewed by Alesmith Brewing Company.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (27-34) were shutout by the Washington Nationals and Tanner Roark last night, losing 6-0.  Once again, the Padres’ hitters did virtually nothing offensively.  Roark (4-4, 2.91) followed up his 3-hit complete game shutout on April 26th with another scoreless 3-hit, 11 strikeout 8 innings.

Tyson Ross (6-5, 3.22) did not look particularly good, giving up all 6 runs in 5 1/3 innings, giving up a 2-run home run to Anthony Rendon in the first and then 4 runs in the sixth.  Everth Cabrera went 0-for-4 with 3 strikeouts.

Tonight, the Padres send Andrew Cashner (2-5, 2.35) to the mound in his return from the disabled list for the second game against the Nationals and Blake Treinen (0-2, 1.40), at PETCO Park.  First pitch on Beach Towel Night is scheduled for 7:10 pm PDT.
