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

The Padres (3-5) scored fewer runs than the Philadelphia Phillies (3-5), 3-0, last night at Citizens Bank Park.

Robbie Erlin (1-1, 0.93) pitched six innings, allowing just one run on three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts. Unfortunately for Erlin, Charlie Morton (1-1, 5.23) shut the Padres out over six and two-thirds innings on three hits, four walks, and seven strikeouts. The Phillies bullpen kept the Padres off the board.

The Phillies’ Odubel Herrera tripled in Tyler Goeddel for the first run with two outs in the sixth inning. The other two runs were scored in the eighth inning on an error after the Padres challenged the slide into second by Herrera that was upheld.

Tonight Colin Rea (0-0, 12.46) takes the mound against Jerad Eickhoff (0-1, 3.60) starting at 4:05pm PDT.

The Padres (24-27) scored fewer runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (26-23) last night, 5-2.

Tyson Ross (2-5, 3.76) allowed three runs (two earned) in six innings on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts. The Pirates took advantage of Ross’ tendency to not hold runners on with three stolen bases, all in the second inning.

Charlie Morton (2-0, 1.93) pitched seven innings, allowing both Padres’ runs (one earned) on three hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Yangervis Solarte had the hardest hit ball against Morton, with his RBI-double in the first inning.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy when you spend the morning at a Sunday champagne brunch.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (54-62) beat the Pittsburgh Pirates (62-55) handily yesterday by a score of 8-2.  Tyson Ross (11-10, 2.63) gave up both Pittsburgh runs in the first inning on a home run by Gregory Polanco.  Then he settled down to record the win after six innings on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts.

The Pirates’ Charlie Morton‘s (5-11, 3.62) day was pretty much the exact opposite of Ross’, striking out the side to begin the game in the first inning, and only surrendering a single run in the fourth inning.  But Morton gave up four runs in the fifth, three on a bases loaded triple by Seth Smith, who then scored on a wild pitch to the next batter.  Morton pitched five innings, giving up five earned runs on five hits and a walk with five strikeouts.  The Friars also received two RBI apiece from Yonder Alonso and Jedd Gyorko.

The Padres come home to Petco Park for three games against the Colorado Rockies starting tonight at 7:10 pm PDT.  Jesse Hahn (7-3, 2.28) takes the hill versus Jordan Lyles 6-1, 3.72).

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  Then the game takes four hours and four minutes to complete nine innings, a Padres’ record for a home game.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (26-32) lost a snoozer of a game last night to the Pittsburgh Pirates (27-30) by a score of 10-3.  Tim Stauffer (2-2, 4.73) had his second bad game in a row as a starter, giving up 2 runs in 2 2/3 innings on 4 hits and 2 walks with 4 strikeouts.  Meanwhile, Pirates’ starter Charlie Morton (2-7, 3.31) had a no-hitter until the fifth inning, when Alexi Amarista broke it up with a leadoff single.

The Padres’ seven pitchers threw a total of 249 pitches, a new Padres record for a nine-inning game.  There were 6 batters hit by pitches, 3 per team, another Padres record.  Both teams combined to leave 27 men on base.  It was just a long night of bad baseball all around.

Tonight the Friars will send out rookie Jesse Hahn to make his Major League debut against the Bucs and Gerrit Cole (5-3, 3.80) at 7:10 pm PDT.  It’s Taco Tuesday, so we’ve got that going for us.  Which is nice.
