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

The Padres (35-47) scored fewer runs than the New York Yankees (40-41) yesterday afternoon, 6-3. The Padres were denied yet again for their first sweep of 2016 remaining 1-for-∞ on Sundays.

Andrew Cashner (3-6, 4.42) came off the disabled list and threw ninety pitches in six innings. Cashner allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out six. Didi Gregorius reached on an error by Alexei Ramirez in the second inning. and eventually came around to score on Ronald Torreyes’ double play ground ball. Gregorius hit a solo home run in the fourth inning. Mark Teixeira hit two home runs — the 400th and 401st of his Major League career — a solo one in the eighth and a two-run one with Brett Gardner on base in the ninth. Gardner knocked in Jacoby Ellsbury on his ninth inning single.

Chad Green (1-1, 4.09) earned his first win, surrendering one run in six innings on three hits and no walks with eight strikeouts. Yangervis Solarte went 4-for-4, coming a triple short of the cycle, and put the Padres on the scoreboard with his solo home run in the second inning. Solarte then scored in the ninth inning on Alex Dickerson‘s two-run home run.

The Friars travel to Phoenix to face the Arizona Diamondbacks (37-47) for three games starting tonight at 6:10pm PDT. Luis Perdomo (2-3, 8.49) gets the start in the first game against Archie Bradley (3-3, 4.50).

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 (34-46) scored more runs than the New York Yankees (39-40) in the first game of three, 7-6, last night at Petco Park.

Colin Rea (5-3, 4.79) pitched six innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts. In the second inning, a Jacoby Ellsbury single drove-in Didi Gregorius. Brian McCann hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. In the ninth inning, the Padres nearly threw the game away, literally. Matt Thornton started the inning by walking McCann and hitting Starlin Castro with pitch. Pinch-hitter Alex Rodriguez then singled to bring McCann in. Brandon Maurer then came in to pitch — and give up a double to Gregorius that drove-in Castro. Aaron Hicks ground out to shortstop, but Rodriguez scored. The Yankees then had Carlos Beltran pinch-hit for Anthony Swarzak, and Maurer threw a wild pitch that allowed Gregorius to score. After Beltran doubled, Maurer got the last two outs for his first Major League save.

Nathan Eovaldi (6-6, 5.54) surrendered six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two in four and one-third innings. In the first inning, a single by Melvin Upton Jr. scored Wil Myers and Derek Norris followed that up with a double to bring Yangervis Solarte and Upton Jr. across the plate. Ryan Schimpf hit his first major league home run, a solo shot to right center field, in the second inning. Myers hit a two-run home run with Travis Jankowski on base in the fifth inning. With Swarzak pitching to Norris in the seventh inning, a passed ball by McCann let Solarte come in from third base.

Tonight starting at 7:10pm PDT, Drew Pomeranz (7-7, 2.76) takes the mound against former Padres’ farmhand Ivan Nova (5-5, 5.32) in the second game at Petco Park.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy wishing you could spend your evening at the pub.  But your car is still at the mechanic’s until at least Tuesday.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.  Alone.  At your house.

The Padres (59-69) lost 5-2 to the Arizona Diamondbacks (55-75) last night.  Neither Andrew Cashner (2-6, 2.43) nor Vidal Nuno (0-3, 4.66) figured in the decision.  Kevin Quackenbush (2-3, 2.90) gave up a three-run home run to Didi Gregorius in the eighth inning to take the loss.

Yangervis Solarte hit a bases loaded single in the top of the eighth to score Rymer Liriano and Cameron Maybin, tying the game.  Then the bottom of the same inning happened.

This afternoon at 1:10 pm PDT the Padres will send Ian Kennedy (9-11, 3.72) to the mound against Chase Anderson (7-5, 3.71) in the final game of the series in Phoenix.
