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 were drinking.

The Padres (62-85) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (70-77) in the first of three games at Coors Field last night, 8-7, on a walk-off single in the bottom of the ninth inning.

Christian Friedrich (5-10, 4.78) gave up four runs on six hits and two walks in five innings while striking out five. Tyler Chatwood‘s single in the second inning scored Stephen Cardullo and Cristhian Adames, Chatwood, and Charlie Blackmon scored on a DJ LeMahieu double. Blackmon scored on a Carlos Gonzalez groundout in the seventh inning. In the ninth inning, with Brandon Maurer coming in to close out the game, a Gonzalez single drove in LeMahieu, David Dahl reached on a single, Nick Hundley singled to drive in Gonzalez and tie the game, and Daniel Descalso hit a walk-off single for the win.

Chatwood (11-9, 4.13) gave up all seven Padres’ runs on eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in five innings. Wil Myers opened the scoring in the first inning with a two-run home run with Jon Jay on base. Alex Dickerson hit a bases-loaded single in the third inning to drive in Travis Jankowski and Jay and a groundout by Luis Sardinas scored Ryan Schimpf. Jankowski scored on a Jay single in the fourth inning, but Jay was thrown out trying to take second base to end the inning. In the sixth inning, Sardinas led off with a solo home run.

Tonight’s second game will have Edwin Jackson (4-5, 5.32) taking the mound versus Jon Gray (9-8, 4.69) starting at 5:10pm PDT.

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 (58-82) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (67-73), 14-1, last night at Petco Park in the first of four games.

Clayton Richard (2-3, 2.78) shutout the Rockies over seven innings while striking out eight on six hits and two walks. The Rockies only run came in the ninth inning, when Cristhian Adames hit a solo home run.

Jeff Hoffman (0-3, 5.60) lasted just two and two-thirds innings, giving up seven unearned runs on six hits and two walks with three strikeouts. The Padres scored those seven unearned run in the third inning. It was crazy.

In the fifth inning, Alex Dickerson scored on a groundout by Richard and a two-RBI single by Travis Jankowski drove in Ryan Schimpf and Derek Norris. Yangervis Solarte scored on a Ryan Schimpf double and a bases-loaded walk of Luis Sardinas scored Dickerson in the sixth inning. Norris hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning.

Tonight’s second game of the series has Luis Perdomo (7-8, 5.92) taking the mound versus Tyler Chatwood (10-9, 3.94) starting at 7:40pm PDT.

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

The Padres (11-17) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (13-14), 2-0, to drop the third of three games at Petco Park yesterday. The Friars are 0-9 so far in the final game of a series this season. That’s probably not ideal.

Cesar Vargas (0-1, 1.10) gave up one run in six innings, striking out three with four hits and three walks. Cristhian Adames ground into a fielder’s choice to score Tony Wolters in the fifth inning. In the ninth inning, with Brad Hand pitching, a sacrifice squeeze from DJ LeMahieu brought Mark Reynolds home for the second and final run.

Tyler Chatwood (4-2, 2.15) struck out seven in eight innings on three hits and a walk. The closest the Padres came to scoring a run came in the seventh inning. With two outs, Brett Wallace doubled and Adam Rosales came into pinch run for him. Melvin Upton Jr. then walked, but Alexei Ramirez grounded out to end any threat.

The New York Mets (17-9) come to Petco Park for four games starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Colin Rea (2-1, 4.61) takes the hill against Jacob deGrom (3-0, 1.02).
