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

The Padres (23-38) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (37-25) yesterday at Chase Field, 15-3, getting swept by the Diamondbacks in their three game series.

Clayton Richard (4-7, 4.54) gave up four runs on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts in five innings. The Padres bullpen was the real loser, as Kevin Quackenbush, Kirby Yates, and Brandon Maurer combined to give up eleven runs in two innings (Maurer didn’t record an out). Read the box score below to get the details because I just don’t have the strength. Erick Aybar ended up pitching (again) and got three outs in the eighth inning.

Patrick Corbin (5-6, 5.38) pitched five and two-thirds innings, surrendering three runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out eight. In the first inning, Austin Hedges‘ bases loaded single scored Yangervis Solarte and Wil Myers. Hunter Renfroe hit an RBI double in the third, driving in Myers.

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.
