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

The Padres (61-64) scored fewer runs than the Washington Nationals (63-61), 8-3, last night in the first of three games at Nationals Park.

James Shields (9-6, 3.89) threw 121 pitches in just five and two-thirds innings, giving up five runs on eight hits and four walks with two strikeouts. Wilson Ramos hit a two-run home run with two outs in the second inning. After being relieved by Marc Rzepczynski in the sixth with two outs and one base runner, Bryce Harper appeared to ground to first base to end the inning. The umpire called it foul however after Harper feigned like the ball hit his foot. Harper drew a walk. Rzepczynski was taken out in favor of Bud Norris, who then walked Yunel Escobar.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a morning at the McDonald’s drive-thru, trying to get there before they stop serving breakfast. Because your McGriddle addiction is real. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (11-14) dropped another game to the Washington Nationals (14-11) yesterday, losing 4-0. Andrew Cashner was pulled after pitching 6 innings, with 4 runs on 9 hits and 1 walk with 5 strikeouts. If it wasn’t for the official scorer’s change of heart on a ball that Jedd Gyorko misplayed that probably would have resulted in a double play, the Padres would have had 4 errors on defense instead of 3. Tanner Roark looked like Greg Maddux out there, pitching a complete game on 105 pitches with 3 hits, 1 walk, and 8 strikeouts.

All told, the entire game was just a case of ugly baseball from the Friars.

We get some more breakfast baseball this morning at 10:35 am PDT when Ian Kennedy faces off against Taylor Jordan in the series finale from Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.
