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 (23-37) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (36-25), 7-4, last night at Chase Field.

Luis Perdomo (0-3, 5.47) pitched four innings, giving up five runs on five hits and four walks with one strikeout. In the third inning, a three-run home run by Jake Lamb and a two-run home run by Brandon Drury was all the Diamondbacks would need. But David Peralta scored on a wild pitch to Lamb and Lamb’s single drove in Paul Goldschmidt in the seventh inning.

Zack Greinke (8-3, 3.20) surrendered three runs on seven hit and a walk in five innings while striking out eight. Yangervis Solarte hit a solo home run in the first inning. Franchy Cordero tripled and scored on Solarte’s single in the third inning. Cordero’s single drove in Jose Pirela in the fifth inning. Pirela’s eight inning single drove in Allen Cordoba.

The series finale this afternoon at 12:40pm PDT will pit Clayton Richard (4-6, 4.36) against Patrick Corbin (4-6, 5.43).

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 (26-40) scored fewer runs than the Miami Marlins (34-31), 5-2, last night at Petco Park.

Drew Pomeranz (5-7, 2.88) gave up all five Marlins’ runs in the first inning. Chris Johnson‘s RBI single with the bases loaded and one out scored Adeiny Hechavarria. The next batter, Jeff Mathis, hit a grand slam home run with Johnson, Martin Prado, and Marcell Ozuna on base. Pomeranz ended his night after five innings, with five hits, five walks, and six strikeouts.

Tom Koehler (5-6, 4.25) pitched six innings, giving up two runs on six hits and a walk with eight strikeouts. Alexi Amarista drove in both Padres’ runs. Amarista’s RBI single scored Ryan Schimpf, who had hit a double in his first Major League at-bat, with two outs in the second inning. In the fourth inning, Amarista had another RBI single to score Christian Bethancourt, who, like Schrimpf, had reached on a double.

This afternoon’s series finale pits Luis Perdomo (1-2, 9.50) against Justin Nicolino (2-3, 4.76) starting at 12:40pm PDT.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending a Sunday afternoon in the pub. Here’s what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (51-54) scored fewer runs than the Miami Marlins (43-62), 5-2, in the series finale at Marlins Park.

Jose Fernandez (4-0, 2.13) struck out ten batters — including Justin Upton three times on nine pitches (Upton struck out a fourth time on three pitches in the eighth inning) — while not allowing a run in his six innings on four hits and two walks. In the ninth inning, Derek Norris singled and Jedd Gyorko struck out, sending Alexi Amarista to the plate. Amarista tied up the ballgame with a line drive home run to right field.

James Shields (8-4, 3.77) pitched six innings, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts. Both runs came in the first inning on back-to-back doubles to lead off the game from Ichiro Suzuki and Miguel Rojas. After reaching third on a Christian Yelich ground out, Rojas scored on a Derek Dietrich sacrifice fly. The Marlins did not score again until the ninth inning, when Brandon Maurer walked Martin Prado, Cole Gillespie ground out on a sacrifice bunt, and Jeff Mathis walked. Adeiny Hechavarria then hit a 1-0 pitch to center field for a three-run walk-off home run to end the game.

The Friars travel to Milwaukee to face the Brewers (44-62) for four games at Miller Park. Tyson Ross (7-8, 3.38) gets the start tonight at 5:10pm PDT against Wily Peralta (2-5, 3.90).
