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

The Padres (28-42) scored fewer runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (38-33) at Miller Park yesterday, 2-1.

Luis Perdomo (1-4, 4.97) gave up two runs on eight hits and two walks in six innings with four strikeouts. In the sixth inning, solo home runs by Hernan Perez and Manny Pina were all the Brewers needed.

Jimmy Nelson (4-3, 3.67) pitched a complete game, allowing one run on six hits and two walks while striking out ten. Erick Aybar singled in the fifth inning and advanced to second on a fielding error by Keon Broxton as Cory Spangenberg scored the lone Padres’ run.

The Padres head to Wrigley Field for three games against the Chicago Cubs (34-34). Clayton Richard (5-7, 4.30) gets the start tonight at 5:05pm PDT against Jon Lester (4-4, 3.89).

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (24-26) scored more runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (25-23), 6-2, on a walk-off grand slam from Derek Norris last night in the second of their four-game series at Petco Park.

James Shields (6-0, 3.69) and Francisco Liriano (2-4, 3.47) both pitched six full innings. Shields allowed two runs on six hit and two walks with six strikeouts. Liriano shutout the Padres on three hits and a walk with eleven strikeouts.

Jared Hughes allowed two runs while only getting one batter out in the seventh inning when Abraham Almonte hit a two-RBI double.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, Jedd Gyorko, Almonte, and Cory Spangenberg loaded the bases with no outs. Alexi Amarista ground into a Fielder’s Choice to the shortstop to get Gyorko running home. With the bases still loaded, Yangervis Solarte then ground into almost the exact same play to the shortstop, who once again threw home to get Almonte. Then Norris — with four strikeouts so far on the night, a “Golden Sombrero” — came up and blasted 1-0 pitch into the Padres bullpen in center field.

Tonight at 7:10pm PDT, Tyson Ross (2-4, 3.84) takes the mound versus Charlie Morton (1-0, 2.57) at Petco Park. It’s Matt Kemp Replica Camouflage Jersey Night.
