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

The Padres (30-31) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (29-30), 4-1, yesterday at Turner Field.

Tyson Ross (3-6, 3.81) really only had one bad inning of his six innings pitched, as the Braves scored two in the second. Ross gave up three runs on nine hits and two walks with five strikeouts. A Kelly Johnson single scored Nick Markakis and Andrelton Simmons singled to score A.J. Pierzynski in the second inning. In the third inning, Freddie Freeman ground into a bases-loaded double play that scored Williams Perez. The Braves scored their fourth run in the seventh inning when Cameron Maybin hit a bases-loaded single off Shawn Kelley to score Pierzynski.

Perez (2-0, 2.78) pitched seven innings, allowing just the one run on four hits and two walks with five strikeouts. The Padres were unable to do much of anything against Perez. Cory Spangenberg‘s RBI double to score Ross in the fifth inning was all the offense could manage.

This morning at 9:10am PDT, Andrew Cashner (2-8, 4.05) takes the mound in the final game of the four game series at Turner Field versus Julio Teheran (4-2, 4.87).
