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 (68-91) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (91-68), 9-4, in the Padres’ final game of 2016 at Petco Park. The Padres ended with a losing record at home in 2016 at 39-42.

Christian Friedrich (5-12, 4.66) gave up five runs in five and two-thirds innings on seven hits and a walk with three strikeouts. Joc Pederson‘s double in the fifth inning drove in Rob Segedin and put the Dodgers on the board. A single by Justin Turner in the sixth inning scored Charlie Culberson, Turner scored on a wild pitch by Jose Torres, and Yasiel Puig and Segedin scored on a Pederson double. Carlos Ruiz‘ two-run double in the seventh inning scored Turner and Puig. Andrew Toles scored on a Andre Ethier single in the eighth inning. And Toles’ single in the ninth inning drove in Micah Johnson

Julio Urias (5-2, 3.39) was pulled after three innings — to help keep him fresh for the postseason — while giving up one hit and three walks and striking out five. Jesse Chavez pitched the fourth inning and gave up two runs. Carlos Asuaje drove in Hunter Renfroe with a single and Derek Norris scored on Luis Sardinas single. Three Dodger pitchers shutout the Padres until the ninth inning, when Jon Jay‘s single scored Manuel Margot and a Yangervis Solarte double drove Jay in.

The Padres wrap up the season with three games at Chase Field against the Arizona Diamondbacks (66-93). Edwin Jackson (5-6, 5.77) gets the start tonight at 6:40pm PDT against Braden Shipley (4-5. 5.26).
