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

The Padres (14-25) scored fewer runs than the Chicago White Sox (17-17), 9-3, yesterday at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Jered Weaver (0-4, 6.05) allowed one run on five hits and two walk in six innings with three strikeouts. Leury Garcia scored in the first inning when Avisail Garcia hit into a double play with the bases loaded. Weaver shut out the White Sox in the last five innings he pitched. And then came the eighth inning…

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (26-31) failed in their attempt to sweep the Chicago White Sox (29-29), losing the series finale yesterday afternoon 4-1 at US Cellular Field.  White Sox starter Chris Sale (5-0, 1.59) was nearly unhittable, pitching a 9-strikeout complete game with just two baserunners, both coming in the fifth inning: a solo home run from Chase Headley followed by a single from Tommy Medica.

Meanwhile, Eric Stults (2-6, 5.03) pitched six innings for the Padres, giving up all four runs on 5 hits — including solo home runs from Paul Konerko and Tyler Flowers — and a walk with 6 strikeouts.

Tonight, the Padres come home to Petco Park to start a three-game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Tim Stauffer (2-1, 4.50) takes the mound against Charlie Morton (1-7, 3.29) at 7:10 pm PDT.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (26-30) handed the Chicago White Sox (28-29) a loss yesterday afternoon, 4-2, at US Cellular Field that meant the Friars won a rare road series.  Tyson Ross (6-4, 2.85) surrendered just one earned run on 5 hits and 3 walks with 5 strikeouts in six innings to earn the win.  White Sox starter Andre Rienzo lasted just 3 1/3 innings, giving up 3 runs on 7 hits and 2 walks with 4 strikeouts.

Will Venable led the Padres offensively with a 4-for-4 afternoon, including 2 doubles and 2 RBI.  Rene Rivera added two doubles of his own along with another RBI.  Chris Denorfia made an rather amazing catch in the fourth inning that — quite frankly — did not look the least bit athletic.  But it got the job done.

The Padres try for the rarest of the rare this season this afternoon at 11:10 am PDT: a sweep on the road.  Eric Stults (2-5, 4.92) takes the mound against Chris Sale (4-0, 1.73) before heading back to San Diego for three against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening looting the soon-to-be-closed Randy Jones All-American Sports Grill as a favor to RJ’s Fro.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (25-30) defeated the Chicago White Sox (28-28) by a score of 4-1 last night in the series opener at US Cellular Field.  Cameron Maybin and Yonder Alonso each had home runs.  Maybin’s solo shot coming in the third inning gave the Padres an early lead.  And Alonso added a 2-run homer in the eighth inning to put the nail in the White Sox’ coffin.

Ian Kennedy (4-6, 3.42) pitched six innings, giving up the one White Sox run on 4 hits and 3 walks with 9 strikeouts.  White Sox starter John Danks (3-5, 4.66) pitched seven innings, surrendering only 2 runs on 8 hits and a walk with 4 strikeouts.

Today the Padres send Tyson Ross (5-4, 2.97) to the hill to face the White Sox and Andre Rienzo (4-1, 3.95) at 11:10 am PDT.
