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 (36-49) scored fewer runs than the Cleveland Indians (45-39) in the series finale at Progressive Field, 11-2.

Dinelson Lamet (3-3, 5.93) allowed six runs (five earned) in four innings pitched on six hits and four walks with five strikeouts. Michael Brantley tripled drove in Francisco Lindor and Jose Ramirez hit a two-run home run in the first inning. And it just kept going from there. Brantley scored on a Lonnie Chisenhall sacrifice fly and Edwin Encarnacion scored on Bradley Zimmer‘s sacrifice fly in the third inning. Encarnacion led off the fifth inning with a home run. In the sixth inning, Yan Gomes hit a lead off home run, Encarnacion drove in Jason Kipnis with a double, and Ramirez’ single scored Encarnacion. Chisenhall doubled in the eighth inning to drive in Brantley and Encarnacion.

Josh Tomlin (5-9, 5.90) gave up two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out six in seven innings. After a leadoff double by Hunter Renfroe for the Padres first baserunner of the night, Cory Spangenberg singled, Renfroe scored on Erick Aybar‘s ground rule double, and Spangenberg came home on Allen Cordoba‘s sacrifice fly.

The Padres start a three-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies (28-56) at Citizen’s Bank Park beginning this evening at 3:35pm PDT. Clayton Richard (5-8, 4.85) starts tonight against Nick Pivetta (2-4, 4.85) .

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

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a day at work. Especially when there’s two baseball games you’d love to complain about. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking…er, working.

Game 1

In Game 1 of the doubleheader, the Padres bats were once again ineffective in a 2-0 loss to the Indians. Eric Stults gave the Padres 5 solid innings, but stumbled a bit in the sixth by allowing a two-run home run to Jason Kipnis. It was not without assistance, however, as Alexi Amarista made a throwing error that allowed lead runner Nick Swisher to reach base to begin with. Despite out-hitting Cleveland 6-5, the Padres were a combined 0-8 with runners in scoring position.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. Especially after the previous game was rained out and you burned through everything recorded on your TiVo instead of watching baseball. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (2-5) were defeated by the Cleveland Indians (4-3) at Progressive Field last night by a score of 8-6. Tyson Ross was all over the place, giving up 7 runs (but only 2 earned) on 5 hits, 5 walks, and one wild pitch in 5 1/3 innings with only 2 strikeouts. Former Padres farmhand Corey Kluber pitching 6 innings while giving up 3 runs on 9 hits with no walks and 8 strikeouts.

Alexi Amarista had a TOOTBLAN and a caught stealing. Jedd Gyorko and Tyson Ross each were charged with an error. It was just a all-around poorly played game of baseball. If it wasn’t for Vinnie Pestano‘s poor showing in the 9th inning, it would have been even worse.

Tomorrow, Eric Stults gets the start in the first game of the rain-delay rescheduled double header against Zach McAllister at 9:05 am PDT. A half-hour after that game ends, Robbie Erlin takes the mound against Trevor Bauer.

Nate of the Vocal Minority had a fantastic post this morning about the Padres and Indians off-season. Two comparable cities/franchises but with two entirely different off-seasons. This led Twitter follower @PointerDave to comment:
