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

The Padres (33-36) scored more runs than the Oakland A’s (29-40), 3-1 yesterday at O.co Coliseum, to prevent a sweep and end their four game losing streak.

Ian Kennedy (4-5, 5.43) allowed just the one Athletics’ run in six innings on four hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Josh Phegley hit a solo home run with no outs in the sixth inning.

Kendall Graveman (3-4, 4.02) arguably pitched a better overall game than Kennedy, allowing two runs in seven innings on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts. Graveman’s only mistakes were solo home runs from Matt Kemp with two outs in the fourth inning and Derek Norris‘ leadoff shot in the sixth inning. The Padres third run came in the seventh inning when Justin Upton flied out to the first baseman in foul territory and Melvin Upton Jr. tagged up from third base.

The Friars travel to Phoenix to play three games against the Arizona Diamondbacks (32-33) at Chase Field. James Shields (7-0, 3.59) takes the hill at 6:40pm PDT against Rubby De La Rosa (5-3, 5.27) this evening.
