Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an evening at the pub. Especially when you are subbing in for Scott and are nowhere near the multi-media linking guru. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (56-79) scored less than the Los Angeles Dodgers (75-60), 5-1, last night in the second of three games at Dodger Stadium.

Luis Perdomo (7-8, 5.929) gave up five runs on nine hits and no walks with five strikeouts in six innings. Adrian Gonzalez drove in a Corey Seager and then Yasmani Grandal drove in three with a long home run to center in the fourth inning. Josh Reddick added to the scoring with a solo shot in the sixth. Keith Hessler (who?) and Jose Dominguez combined to shutout the Dodgers over the last two innings.

Rich Hill (11-3, 1.94) pitched six innings, surrendering no runs on one hit and two walks while striking out eight. Alexei Ramirez broke up the no-hitter in the sixth inning. In the eighth inning, Wil Myers singled in Luis Sardinas, who had doubled off of Casey Fien. Yay, no shut out!

Today at 1:10pm PDT, Christian Friedrich (4-10, 4.84) gets the start against Jose De Leon (0-0, 0.00) gets his debut in the final game of the series.
