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 (1-3) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (3-1) in yesterday afternoon’s series finale at Dodger Stadium, 10-2.

Jered Weaver (0-1) pitched five innings, giving up four runs on five hits — all four runs came from two two-run home runs by Yasiel Puig — and three walks while striking out just two. Puig’s first home run came with no outs in the second inning, driving in Chase Utley. Puig hit his second one in his next at-bat, in the fourth inning, with Joc Pederson on base. The Padres’ wheels came off after Weaver was taken out of the game, as the Dodgers scored two in the sixth inning and four in the seventh inning. Christian Bethancourt came in to pitch in the seventh inning and got Utley to ground out. However, Bethancourt walked the next four batters before being relieved by Brad Hand.

Brandon McCarthy (1-0) surrendered two runs on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts in six innings. Both Padres runs came on a Wil Myers two-run home run in the sixth inning.

Today, the Padres’ home opener starts at 3:40pm PDT, with Luis Perdomo (0-0) getting his first start of 2017 against the San Francisco Giants (1-3) and Matt Cain (0-0).

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

The Padres (10-9) scored less runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (11-6) last night, 11-8, and it wasn’t even that close. Ian Kennedy (0-1, 10.80) was hit hard and hit early, lasting just four and a third innings [which was probably two innings more than he should have been in there] giving up eight runs on eight hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Andre Ethier hit two home runs off of Kennedy. Adrian Gonzalez and Howie Kendrick did too. Juan Uribe hit one off of Chris Rearick, who finished the fifth inning for Kennedy.

Brandon McCarthy (3-0, 5.87) pitched five innings, surrendering six runs on six hits and a walk with four strikeouts before leaving with what was later reported as tightness in his right elbow. Wil Myers led off the bottom of the first inning with his third home run. Justin Upton hit two home runs off of McCarthy.

This afternoon will have Brandon Morrow (0-0, 3.15) taking the mound against the Dodgers and Scott Baker (0-0, 0.00) at 1:10pm PDT in the final game of the series at Petco Park.

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

The Padres (1-2) were defeated by Adrian Gonzalez and the Los Angeles Dodgers (2-1), 7-4, last night. Seriously, Gonzalez pretty much was the Dodgers offense by himself, hitting three solo home runs and an RBI single to cap off his 4-for-4 night.

Andrew Cashner (0-1, 9.00) was hit hard, giving up all three of Gonzalez’s home runs. Cashner gave up six runs (five earned) on eight hits and three walks with six strikeouts in five innings. Dodgers starter Brandon McCarthy (1-0, 7.20) also pitched five innings, surrendering four runs on nine hits and a walk with nine strikeouts.

Justin Upton hit his first home run of the season with a two-run moon shot in the first inning, scoring Matt Kemp from first base. Will Middlebrooks added a solo home run in the sixth inning.

This afternoon is the home opener at Petco Park. Ian Kennedy (0-0, 0.00) gets the start against Tim Hudson (0-0, 0.00) and the San Francisco Giants at 3:40pm PDT.

The Padres (34-46) dropped the first game of their three-game series against the Arizona Diamondbacks, 2-1, last night at PETCO Park.  Tyson Ross (6-8, 3.18) was once again left to fend for himself offensively, driving in the lone Padres run with a sacrifice fly in the fifth to drive in Cameron Maybin.
