Joe Panik scored on Buster Posey‘s double, Posey scored on a single by Brandon Crawford, and Crawford scored on Pablo Sandoval‘s double in the first inning. In the fourth inning, Panik doubled in Hunter Pence, Posey’s ground-rule double drove in Panik, and Crawford singled to drive in Denard Span & Posey. Pence came home in the sixth inning on Posey’s double.

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

The Padres (1-3) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (2-2) in the first of three at Coors Field, 13-6, ending their scoreless innings streak at thirty.

Colin Rea (0-0, 12.46) had a shaky start, giving up five runs on six hit and four walks with five strikeouts in just three and a third innings. Newly called-up Robbie Erlin received credit for the win after relieving Rea and shutting the Rockies down for three and two-thirds innings. Rookie shortstop Trevor Story hit two home runs — a two-run shot off Rea in the fourth inning and a solo shot in the ninth inning off Ryan Buchter — to make it five six home runs in four games this season.

Jordan Lyles (0-1, 13.50) lasted three and a third innings, surrendering five runs on seven hits and three walk with four strikeouts. Matt Kemp went 4-for-6 with a three-run home run in the fifth inning off Justin Miller to go with an RBI single that scored Cory Spangenberg in the fourth inning. Yangervis Solarte went 3-for-5 with four RBI. Spangenberg and Melvin Upton Jr. added two RBI each, Upton Jr.’s coming on a two-run home run in the sixth inning.

Tonight, starting at 5:10pm PDT, Drew Pomeranz makes his first start of 2016 against Jorge De La Rosa (0-0, 9.64).

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

The Padres (10-7) scored one less run, 2-1, than the Colorado Rockies (9-7) yesterday at Coors Field, splitting the series and ending the road trip with a 4-3 record.

Tyson Ross (1-1, 3.97) had a tough couple of innings, loading the bases in the first and third innings. Yet the only runs scored on him were on a bases-loaded walk of Daniel Descanso in the first inning and a solo home run by 2015 Padre-killer Corey Dickerson to lead-off the fifth inning. Ross ended up pitching five full innings with six hits, four walks, and seven strikeouts.

Jordan Lyles (2-1, 2.92) pitched six and two-third innings, giving up just the one run on a Yonder Alonso RBI single to score Matt Kemp from second base in the fourth inning. Lyles also allowed six hits and two walks with four strikeouts.

Tonight at 7:10pm has the Friars returning to San Diego and Petco Park for the first of three games against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Andrew Cashner (1-2, 2.65) gets the start versus Zack Greinke (2-0, 1.83). It’s also the first Padres Beerfest of the season. So I would fully expect to see a lot of drunk tweets in the recap tomorrow.

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

The Padres (55-62) beat the Colorado Rockies (46-72) 4-3 last night in the first game of three at Petco Park.  Neither starting pitcher, the Padres’ Jesse Hahn (7-3, 2.52) or Colorado’s Jordan Lyles (6-1, 3.70), figured in the decision, as the Friars came back from a 3-1.  A 2-run home run from Yangervis Solarte  in the seventh capped the comeback.

Rymer Liriano made his major league debut with a start in right field, going 0-for-2 with a strikeout and a sacrifice fly that yielded his first RBI.

Kevin Quackenbush struck out all three Rockies in the eighth inning and Joaquin Benoit struck out the side in the ninth for his sixth save.

Tonight at 7:10 pm PDT the Padres will send Odrisamer Despaigne (2-3, 3.10) out on the hill to face the Rockies and Yohan Flande (0-4, 5.77).  It’s Taco Tuesday sponsored by Cholula Hot Sauce, which seems to be rivaling National University and Sycuan Casino in the sheer number of Padres sponsorships.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub trying to get past the thought of Cashner going on the DL with elbow soreness.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.  And crying.

The Padres (21-23) played a little Colorado Baseball in Denver, defeating the Colorado Rockies (24-20) by a score of 8-5.  Seth Smith and Carlos Quentin each had 2-run home runs.  Yonder Alonso hit 2 doubles and added 2 RBI.  Robbie Erlin (3-4, 4.53) pitched 5 innings of 4-run (4 earned) baseball on 9 hits and no walks with 2 strikeouts.

For the Rockies, starter Jordan Lyles pitched just 3 1/3 innings, giving up 6 runs (all earned) on 5 hits and 6 walks with 3 strikeouts.  Troy Tulowitzki hit a solo shot off of Erlin in the first inning and Carlos Gonzalez had 2 doubles & 3 RBI.

This afternoon at 1:10 pm PDT, the Padres’ Donn Roach makes his first Major League start against Juan Nicasio of the Rockies in the rubber game of the series in Coors Field.  Roach is getting the start in place of Andrew Cashner, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list with elbow soreness.  Cashner will have a MRI on his elbow on Monday.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. Especially when Jedd Gyorko signs a “monster” extension earlier in the day and some fans inexplicably get upset about the suite on the road he’s guaranteed now. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (6-7) won last night’s game against the Colorado Rockies (6-8) in the most Padres way ever: scoring not one, but two runs on a wild pitch and an error on the same play to go ahead in the 8th inning.

Starter Eric Stults continued his slow start, giving up all 4 of the Rockies runs in his 5 innings on 9 hits and 2 walks with 3 strikeouts. Rockies starter Jordan Lyles didn’t fare much better, giving up 3 runs in 5 innings on 6 hits and 2 walks, also with 3 strikeouts.

In the bottom of the 8th, the Padres loaded the bases with 2 outs. Then Rockies reliever Rex Brothers threw a wild pitch, allowing Xavier Nady to score. Then catcher Wilin Rosario made a throwing error trying to get the ball to Brothers covering the plate, allowing Seth Smith to score the go-ahead run.

Tonight at 7:10 pm PDT, Robbie Erlin takes the mound for the Friars against the Rockies’ Juan Nicasio. At this time, it’s not any particular Opening Day/Night, but that could change.
