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 (57-82) scored fewer runs than the Boston Red Sox (78-61), 7-2, in the finale of their three game series at Petco Park.

Jarred Cosart (0-3, 5.16) was removed after three and a third innings after straining his hamstring and groin while covering first base on a ground ball. Cosart gave up three runs (two earned) on two hits and two walk with one strikeout. Travis Shaw hit a two-run home run in the second inning. Shaw then singled in the fourth inning to drive in Jackie Bradley Jr. and later scored on Dustin Pedroia‘s two-run double. Hanley Ramirez hit a solo home run in the eighth inning and Brock Holt‘s pinch-hit solo home run in the ninth inning closed out the scoring.

David Price (15-8, 3.92) surrendered two runs on six hits and no walks in seven innings while striking out eight. Yangervis Solarte‘s RBI double to drive in Wil Myers in the first inning put the Padres on the scoreboard. Myers hit a sacrifice fly in the third inning to drive in Cosart.

The Colorado Rockies (67-72) come to Petco Park for four games starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Clayton Richard (1-3, 3.29) gets the start in the first game against Jeff Hoffman (0-2, 6.60).

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during a holiday afternoon 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 an evening in the pub, pleading with the waitress to change the TV in your line of sight from Monday Night Football to the Padres game.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (66-77) lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers (82-62) by a score of 9-4 last night, despite the Dodgers making three errors on the same play in the sixth inning.

Odrisamer Despaigne (3-6, 3.55) lasted just four and a third innings, surrendering seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and three walks with three strikeouts.  A Juan Uribe solo home run in second inning was merely one of Despaigne’s problems on the night.

Clayton Kershaw (18-3, 1.67) pitched eight innings, giving up three runs, just one of which was earned thanks to a fly ball to center in the sixth inning that Yasiel Puig threw away towards first base trying to double up Rymer Liriano.  A.J. Ellis then threw it away trying to get Liriano at second base.  And then Hanley Ramirez erred on the throw home trying to get Yangervis Solarte.  At this point, Liriano managed to slide safely into home.  It was all very confusing to watch, not to mention type out after the fact.

Rene Rivera had an RBI single in the fourth inning.  Yasmani Grandal hit a solo home run in the ninth inning off of Pedro Baez.  Carl Crawford hit a three-run home run off of reliever Frank Garces in the fifth inning for the Dodgers.

Tonight’s matchup in Dodger Stadium features Andrew Cashner (2-7, 2.39) versus Roberto Hernandez (2-2, 4.61) at 7:10 pm PDT.
