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

The Padres (43-58) scored fewer runs than the Toronto Blue Jays (57-44) in twelve innings, 7-6, in the second game of three at the Rogers Centre.

Andrew Cashner (4-7, 4.76) pitched six innings, allowing three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six. Josh Donaldson hit a two-run home run with Jose Bautista on base in the first inning. Justin Smoak led off the Blue Jays’ fifth inning with a solo home run. A wild pitch on a Bautista strikeout brought Russell Martin across the plate in the seventh inning. In the twelfth inning, Bautista drew a bases-loaded walk from Paul Clemens to bring Kevin Pillar home, then a ground out by Donaldson drove in Darwin Barney, and another wild pitch by Clemens scored Devon Travis for the game-winning run.

Marcus Stroman (8-4, 4.92) gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in six and two-thirds innings. Ryan Schimpf‘s RBI double in the second inning scored Yangervis Solarte. Alex Dickerson hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning, driving in Travis Jankowski and Matt Kemp. Kemp hit a two-run home run in the top of the twelfth inning with Wil Myers on base.

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 (43-57) scored fewer runs than the Toronto Blue Jays (56-44), 4-2 last night, in the first of three games at the Rogers Centre.

In the fifth inning, Devon Travis hit a double scored Kevin Pillar and Travis scored on a Josh Donaldson single. Pillar doubled in Tulowitzki in the eighth inning.

Tonight at 4:07pm PDT, Andrew Cashner (4-7, 4.79) will start (if he’s still a Padre, that is) against Marcus Stroman (8-4, 4.90) in the second game at the Rogers Centre.
