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

The Padres (15-28) scored fewer runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (24-18), 4-2, yesterday at Petco Park.

Jarred Cosart (0-1, 2.70) gave up just one run on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in five innings pitched, a Eric Sogard single to drive in Orlando Arcia in the fifth inning, but the Padres’ bullpen blew it once again. This time, Ryan Buchter allowed two runs that were charged to Kevin Quackenbush to cross the plate. In the seventh inning, Sogard doubled in Keon Broxton and Arcia.  Broxton scored again in the ninth inning on a Jonathan Villar groundout.

Zach Davies (5-2, 5.44) pitched six innings, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three. Hunter Renfroe hit a solo home run in the second inning. Luis Torrens ground into a double play in the fifth inning and Cory Spangenberg scored from third base.
