The Padres (23-35) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (25-31) last night at Petco Park, 10-3, in a game that started at 6:10pm PDT due to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon street closures downtown earlier in the day.

Luis Perdomo (1-2, 10.38) allowed six runs on eight hit and a walk with three strikeouts in four and a third innings pitched. Perdomo started because it was decided that yesterday’s game would be another Bullpen Day, thanks to the trade of starter James Shields to the Chicago White Sox on Saturday. Carlos Gonzalez hit the snot out of two, two-run home runs in the game, the first coming in the first inning and the second coming in the ninth inning. Nolan Arenado was on base both times and also hit a two-run home run of his own in the fifth inning.

Jon Gray (4-2, 5.33) struck out a personal best twelve batters in seven innings, allowing two runs on five hits and a walk. Wil Myers hit an RBI double in the fourth inning to score Jon Jay.

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

The Padres (22-34) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (24-30) last night, 4-0, in the first game of three at Petco Park.

Drew Pomeranz (5-5, 2.22) pitched seven shutout innings, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out eight batters. The Rockies only had two men reach base in an inning twice. In the second inning. Mark Reynolds reached on an error by Yangervis Solarte with two out and Gerardo Parra walked. In the third inning, Charlie Blackmon walked with one out and Nolan Arenado singled with two outs. Both times, Pomeranz got out of the inning.

Chris Rusin (1-4, 4.62) gave up four runs (three earned) on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts in seven innings pitched. With no outs and Jon Jay & Wil Myers on base, Matt Kemp hit a towering three-run home run to left field. The Padres measured the home run at 458 feet while MLB had it at 451 feet. Either way, Kemp hit it a long, long way. In the fourth inning, Melvin Upton Jr. stole home with Pomeranz up to bat. Upton avoided the tag by catcher Nick Hundley and was called safe.

Andrew Cashner (2-5, 4.79) gets the start in tonight’s second game of the series against Chad Bettis (4-4, 4.56). First pitch is at 7:10pm PDT.

The Padres (11-17) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (13-14), 2-0, to drop the third of three games at Petco Park yesterday. The Friars are 0-9 so far in the final game of a series this season. That’s probably not ideal.

Cesar Vargas (0-1, 1.10) gave up one run in six innings, striking out three with four hits and three walks. Cristhian Adames ground into a fielder’s choice to score Tony Wolters in the fifth inning. In the ninth inning, with Brad Hand pitching, a sacrifice squeeze from DJ LeMahieu brought Mark Reynolds home for the second and final run.

Tyler Chatwood (4-2, 2.15) struck out seven in eight innings on three hits and a walk. The closest the Padres came to scoring a run came in the seventh inning. With two outs, Brett Wallace doubled and Adam Rosales came into pinch run for him. Melvin Upton Jr. then walked, but Alexei Ramirez grounded out to end any threat.

The New York Mets (17-9) come to Petco Park for four games starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Colin Rea (2-1, 4.61) takes the hill against Jacob deGrom (3-0, 1.02).
