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

The Padres (57-73) scored fewer runs than the Miami Marlins (66-63), 6-2, at Marlins Park yesterday.

Clayton Richard (6-13, 4.96) gave up five runs on eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in seven-plus innings. In the third inning, Dee Gordon scored on Giancarlo Stanton‘s double and Stanton went to third base on the throw home then scored on a wild pitch to Christian Yelich. Stanton hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning, Yelich tripled and scored on a throwing error, and Derek Dietrich hit a solo home run off of Carter Capps, who had relieved Richard after the Yelich little league home run.

Dan Straily (8-8, 3.80) allowed two runs in six innings on six hits and three walks while striking out fives. Richard hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning. Yes, that Richard.

The Padres come back to Petco Park for three games against the San Francisco Giants (52-79) beginning tonight at 7:10pm PDT with Jhoulys Chacin‘s (11-9, 4.10) turn in the rotation coming against Jeff Samardzija (8-12, 4.67).

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 (8-11) scored less runs than the Miami Marlins (9-8), 6-3 in 11 innings, last night at Petco Park.

Jered Weaver (0-1, 3.91) pitched six innings, giving up two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out three. Giancarlo Stanton hit a solo home run to lead off the second inning and Martin Prado hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. In the eleventh inning, Justin Bour singled off Jose Torres and Dee Gordon hit a ground ball to the pitcher that Torres threw into the right field corner, where Hunter Renfroe had trouble picking it up, allowing Gordon to run all the way around the bases for a little league home run. Prado then singled, but was forced out on a fielder’s choice by Christian Yelich. Stanton then hit his second home run of the night, a two-run shot.

Dan Straily (1-1, 3.92) surrendered two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out fourteen. Yes, I said fourteen. Austin Hedges hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. With runners at the corners in the eleventh inning, Hedges hit into a fielder’s choice, which brought Wil Myers in from third base.

In the rubber game this afternoon, starting at 1:40pm PDT, Luis Perdomo (0-0, 8.44) gets the start against Tom Koehler (0-1, 5.40).
