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 (25-40) scored more runs than the Cincinnati Reds (29-34) last night, 9-3, in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Luis Perdomo (1-3, 5.16) finally recorded his first win of 2017, giving up three runs on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in six and two-thirds innings. Scott Schebler hit an two-run single in the first inning. Scooter Gennett‘s RBI single in the seventh inning drove in Schebler for the Reds’ third and final run.

Bronson Arroyo (3-5, 7.01) pitched four and two-thirds innings, surrendering nine runs on thirteen hits and no walks while striking out two. Yangervis Solarte drove in Jose Pirela with a single in the first inning. In the second inning, the Padres beat up on Arroyo with Austin Hedges‘ two-run double, an RBI single by Pirela, a two-run home run by Franchy Cordero (his first in the Major Leagues), and a Solarte home run. Wil Myers hit an RBI single in the fourth inning. In the fifth inning, Hedges singled but was thrown out trying to take second and Cory Spangenberg scored in the process.

Tonight, Clayton Richard (4-7, 4.54) takes the mound against Scott Feldman (5-4, 4.09) with first pitch set for 7:10pm PDT.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at Padres Beerfest. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (13-17) were defeated by the Arizona Diamondbacks (10-22) in a 2-0 shutout last night. The Friars offensive woes continued against Bronson Arroyo, who kept the Padres to just 3 singles in 7 innings. Andrew Cashner pitched 6 innings, the D-Backs’ only runs coming from a 2-run single by Aaron Hill in the third inning.

Good thing it was Beerfest and most of us were too “preoccupied” to care. If you don’t drink, this game would have been a good moment to start.

This evening at 5:40 pm PDT, Ian Kennedy takes the mound for the Padres. Maybe the offense will get a jump start against the D-Backs’ Brandon McCarthy. Or maybe we’ll all be crying into our beach blankets courtesy of Jerome’s.
