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.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon at the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (64-71) were defeated rather handily in the final game of their three game series with the Los Angeles Dodgers (77-60) by a score of 7-1, denying the Friars a sweep.

Eric Stults (6-15, 4.56) was not horrible, giving up just two runs in six innings on five hits and five walks with four strikeouts.  Dodgers’ starter Hyun-Jin Ryu (14-6, 3.28) was better though, coming off the disabled list to only allow one run in seven innings on four hits and no walks with seven strikeouts.

L.A. pulled ahead in the eighth inning, scoring a total of four runs off of Blaine Boyer, Alex Torres, and Jesse Hahn, who then surrendered the Dodgers’ seventh run in the ninth inning.

This afternoon Tyson Ross (12-12, 2.64) faces the visiting Arizona Diamondbacks and Trevor Cahill (3-9, 4.98) on Labor Day at 1:10 pm PDT in the first of a four-game series.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub watching the one small TV in the back corner not tuned to the World Cup final.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.  And squinting.

The Padres (41-54) lost 1-0 to the Los Angeles Dodgers (54-43) at Dodger Stadium yesterday in the final game before the All-Star break.  Tyson Ross (7-10, 2.85) threw seven innings with nine strikeouts and one walk on six hits, giving up the only run on a Yasiel Puig single to score Dee Gordon in the sixth inning.

The Padres offense was particularly offensive against Hyun-Jin Ryu (10-5, 3.44), striking out ten times with zero walks and two hits in his six innings.  The closest the Friars came to scoring was in the ninth inning, when Carlos Quentin singled (then was lifted for pinch-runner Jace Peterson) and Yasmani Grandal singled to get Peterson to third.  But Jake Goebbert and Seth Smith each struck out to end the threat and the game.

The Padres are off for the next four days, along with every other team, for the All-Star break.  Their next game is the first of three games against the New York Mets on Friday night at 7:10 pm PDT at PETCO Park.  Ian Kennedy (7-9, 3.47) takes the hill against Bartolo Colon (8-8, 3.99).

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub watching the U.S. Men’s National Team playing in the World Cup instead of the Padres game.  Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (32-44) lost the rubber game to the Los Angeles Dodgers (42-35), 2-1, yesterday at PETCO Park.  Eric Stults (2-10, 5.49) gave up 2 runs early on, but settled down to pitch seven innings with six hits, three walks, and five strikeouts.  The offense, once again, just wasn’t there against Hyun-Jin Ryu (9-3, 3.06), with the only run coming in the sixth inning from a leadoff double by Chris Denorfia and then a one-out groundout by Carlos Quentin.

The Padres head to San Francisco for a three-game series with Giants at AT&T Park.  Odrisamer Despaigne — called up to take Andrew Cashner‘s (2-6, 2.36) turn in the rotation for some reason — gets the start in his Major League debut against Matt Cain (1-5, 4.52) tonight at 7:15 pm PDT.
