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

The Padres (8-12) scored less runs than the Miami Marlins (10-8) in the finale of three games at Petco Park, 7-3.

Luis Perdomo (0-0, 6.97) shut the Marlins out for five innings, but began the sixth inning with a single by Martin Prado, a walk to Christian Yelich, and an RBI single to Giancarlo Stanton. Craig Stammen relieved Perdomo and gave up a double to Marcell Ozuna that scored Yelich, a single to score Stanton, and Justin Bour topped it all off with a three-run home run. All with no outs. Kevin Quackenbush replaced Stammen and retired the next three batters to finish the inning. Perdomo’s final line was five innings pitched with four hits, three walks, and five strikeouts. In the ninth inning, Dee Gordon led off with a triple and scored two batters later on Yelich’s sacrifice fly.

Tom Koehler (1-1, 5.14) gave up three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out seven in six innings pitched. Manuel Margot led off the first inning with single, and after Erick Aybar ground out he took second base. Wil Myers struck out and Yangervis Solarte singled to drive in Margot. In the fourth inning, Hunter Renfroe hit a two-run home run to dead center field.

Padres’ manager Andy Green was ejected after the eighth inning for arguing with the home plate umpire about his terrible, horrible, no-good strike zone.

The Padres head to Phoenix for four games against the Arizona Diamondbacks (12-8) starting tonight at 6:40pm PDT. Jhoulys Chacin (2-2, 4.70) goes tonight against Zack Greinke (1-2, 3.28).

In the eleventh inning, Justin Bour singled off Jose Torres and Dee Gordon hit a ground ball to the pitcher that Torres threw into the right field corner, where Hunter Renfroe had trouble picking it up, allowing Gordon to run all the way around the bases for a little league home run. Prado then singled, but was forced out on a fielder’s choice by Christian Yelich. Stanton then hit his second home run of the night, a two-run shot.

Dan Straily (1-1, 3.92) surrendered two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out fourteen. Yes, I said fourteen. Austin Hedges hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning.

That’s the question Padres ownership will have to answer for a solution to the problem they’re facing: what to do about AJ Preller. The Padres were investigated by Major League Baseball for a complaint filed by the Boston Red Sox for withholding information in the Drew Pomeranz trade.

Preller was suspended for 30 days, which isn’t a huge deal in and of itself since major moves don’t usually happen between now and the end of the World Series. What is a big deal has less to do with MLB’s investigation and more to do with how other teams view Preller. Will anyone trust him after this?

As reported by Buster Olney, the accusations boil down to the reporting of player injury information to a central database. According to Olney, teams are required to record all information regarding any kind of treatment players receive. The Padres apparently didn’t include everything that was required. Ken Rosenthal reports that Drew Pomeranz “and others” were taking oral medications that weren’t disclosed, which led to the suspension. The Padres admit to the behavior, but say it wasn’t “malicious” which I guess means they claim they didn’t know it was against the rules.
