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

An unscheduled home run derby occurred yesterday afternoon as the Padres (37-41) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (36-39), 6-4 at Petco Park.

Matt Kemp led off the game with his sixth home run of the season. Derek Norris hit two home runs, a two-run shot in the fourth inning and a solo home run in the sixth inning. For the Diamondbacks, Welington Castillo hit a three-run home run in the second inning, David Peralta had a solo home run in the third inning, and John Lamb added a two-run home run in the sixth inning.

Odrisamer Despaigne (3-6, 4.94) pitched five and two-third innings, giving up five runs (four earned) on three hits and no walks with six strikeouts. Padres manager Pat Murphy pulled Despaigne with one on and two outs in the sixth to bring in left-handed reliever Frank Garces to pitch to Lamb. That didn’t work out so well.

Chase Anderson (4-2, 3.66) gave up all four Padres’ runs over seven innings on five hits and a walk with one strikeout.

The Padres have a day off tomorrow before finishing up the Vedder Cup with two games against the Seattle Mariners (34-42) on Tuesday night. Ian Kennedy (4-6, 5.09) is penciled in to start against Mike Montgomery (2-2, 2.04) at 7:10pm PDT at Petco Park.

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 (17-15) scored more runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (13-16) last night at Chase Field, 6-4, in twelve innings.

Tyson Ross (1-3, 3.98) pitched what was arguably his best game of the season thus far, lasting six innings and giving up just two runs on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts. Craig Kimbrel gave up the other two Diamondbacks’ runs in the ninth inning for his first blown save of the season, which then sent the game into extra innings.

Chase Anderson (0-1, 2.97) pitched seven innings while only giving up one run on five hits and two walks with two strikeouts. Alexi Amarista and Jedd Gyorko had back-to-back highlight defensive plays in the bottom of tenth inning to preserve the tie. Randall Delgado earned the loss when Justin Upton led off the twelfth inning with a solo home run to give the Padres a 5-4 lead. Amarista then hit a RBI single to left field with two outs to give the Padres an insurance run.

This afternoon at 1:10pm PDT, Andrew Cashner (1-5, 3.16) takes the hill in the final game of the series in Phoenix against the Diamondbacks and the always difficult To Be Determined.

The Padres (6-4) once again scored more runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (4-5) last night at Petco Park, winning 3-2. Justin Upton extended his hitting streak to start the season to 10 games with a single in the second inning and then scored the Friars’ first run on a double by Yonder Alonso. He then hit another monster shot to left field in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie. Craig Kimbrel then came in to close out the game in the ninth inning for his third save.

Brandon Morrow (0-0, 1.20) had some trouble early, giving up a two-run home run in the first inning to Paul Goldschmidt. But he settled down and pitched well through the seventh, retiring 10 in a row before Aaron Hill singled. Morrow relieved by Joaquin Benoit in the eighth and Benoit was the pitcher of record when Upton hit his bomb.

Chase Anderson (0-0, 4.09) pitched six innings for the D-Backs. Newly called-up Yasmany Tomas made his Major League debut, pinch-hitting for Anderson in the seventh and grounding out in his only appearance of the game.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon at the pub watching the one tiny TV in the very back that the bartender begrudgingly graciously switched from the Local NFL Team’s practice preseason game to the Padres’ game.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (60-69) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks (55-76) 7-4 yesterday in Phoenix to prevent a sweep and get Bud Black his 600th win as a Major League manager.  Ian Kennedy (10-11, 3.72) earned the win while giving up three runs in five and two-thirds innings on eight hits and three walks with six strikeouts.  The Diamondbacks’ Chase Anderson (7-5, 3.71) wasn’t so lucky, giving up four runs in his five innings.

Yasmani Grandal hit a three-run home run in the fifth off of Anderson.  Will Venable hit a two-run home run in the eighth off of former Padre Matt Stites while pinch-hitting for Cameron Maybin.  Dale Thayer actually batted in the eighth inning, striking out on three pitches.  Joaquin Benoit pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning for his eighth save.
