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 (5-9) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (6-6), getting swept in four games with a walkoff loss yesterday at SunTrust Park.

Jered Weaver (0-1, 4.24) pitched six innings, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits and no walks with three strikeouts. Brandon Phillips scored on Kurt Suzuki‘s ground out in the second inning, after singling, taking second base on Luis Sardiñas error, and moving to third base on a sacrifice fly. Freddie Freeman two home runs: a two-run shot in the third inning and a solo in the eighth inning. The Braves won when Brandon Maurer loaded the bases in the ninth inning and Dansby Swanson hit a single to left field that Allen Cordoba couldn’t catch.

Jaime Garcia (0-1, 4.67) surrendered two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four in six and a third innings. Manuel Margot, Wil Myers, and Yangervis Solarte began the game with three straight singles, driving in Margot for the first run. Cordoba hit a pinch-hit solo home run to lead off the seventh inning before playing left field. And Austin Hedges hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning.

The Friars head home to Petco Park to begin three games against the Arizona Diamondbacks (9-5) tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Jarred Cosart (0-0, 3.86) gets the first start of the series against Shelby Miller (1-1, 5.06).
