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 (11-16) scored more runs than the San Francisco Giants (9-17), 5-2, in twelve innings yesterday at AT&T Park.

Clayton Richard (2-3, 4.29) gave up two runs on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts in five and a third innings pitched. Joe Panik scored on a Ty Blach sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. In the sixth inning, Michael Morse‘s RBI double drove in Hunter Pence.

Blach (0-1, 2.55) shut out the Padres over seven innings on three hits and two walks while recording just one strikeout. The Giants’ bullpen imploded again, with Mark Melancon giving up a two-run home run by Hector Sanchez to tie the game in the ninth inning. And George Kontos surrendered a go-ahead three-run home run by Wil Myers in the twelfth inning.

The Padres are off today as they travel back home to Petco Park for three games against the Colorado Rockies (16-10). Trevor Cahill (1-2, 4.50) gets the start tomorrow at 7:10pm PDT versus Tyler Chatwood (2-3, 4.88).

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

The Padres (9-16) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (9-15), 4-3, last night in the first of three games at AT&T Park.

Luis Perdomo (0-0, 4.96) is still looking for his first victory of 2017. Perdomo pitched six innings, giving up three runs (one earned) on six hits and no walks while striking out five. In the first inning, Christian Arroyo reached on an error, allowing Joe Panik to score, and Brandon Belt scored on a Conor Gillaspie single. Belt scored on a Michael Morse sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. Arroyo led off the eighth inning with a home run.

Jeff Samardzija (0-4, 7.40) is also looking for his first victory of 2017. Samardzija surrendered three runs (two earned) in seven innings on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts. Ryan Schimpf hit a two-run home run and Cory Spangenberg scored on a Austin Hedges single in the fifth inning.

At AT&T Park tonight, starting at 6:05pm PDT, Jhoulys Chacin (2-3, 5.90) gets the start versus Matt Cain (2-0, 2.42).

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub listening to the dulcet tones of Matt Vasgersian and dreaming of a day when he would triumphantly return to the Padres to take his rightful place back from Dick Enberg in the television broadcast booth.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (39-48) had their five-game winning streak snapped on national TV last night with a 5-3 loss in ten innings to the San Francisco Giants (48-39).  Huston Street blew his first save in 24 chances when he gave up a game-tying ninth-inning home run to Michael Morse.  Brandon Belt then hit a 2-run home run off of Dale Thayer in the tenth inning to give the Giants their final lead of the evening.

Odrisamer Despaigne walked four batters as he struggled a little with his control. He allowed two hits and one run with two strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision.  Tim Hudson faced the minimum through the first five innings of his six innings, allowing three hits and one run with no walks and four strikeouts.

This afternoon Jesse Hahn takes on Tim Lincecum and the Giants in the third and final game of the series.  Gary Sinise and the Lt Dan Band are performing a post-game concert, so we can expect to see a lot of Gary Sinise during the Fox Sports San Diego broadcast.  Because those of us who aren’t able to be there want to see a lot of promotion for a concert we likely can’t see.
