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 (12-17) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (17-11), 11-3, last night at Petco Park.

Jered Weaver (0-3, 5.51) gave up ten runs (five earned) on ten hits and no walks in four innings while striking out two.

Yeah, you read that right. Ten hits and ten runs, with just five of those earned. Weaver gonna weave, man.

Charlie Blackmon led off the game with a double and scored on a single by DJ LeMahieu, who took second base on the throw from Hunter Renfroe. Nolan Arenado doubled, scoring LeMahieu, and Ian Desmond hit a two-run home run.

In the fourth inning, Dustin Garneau and Antonio Senzatela got on base and Blackmon hit a ball to first base that Wil Myers couldn’t handle, allowing two runs to score and Blackmon to get to third base on Renfroe’s throw. Blackmon scored on an Arenado sacrifice fly.

Desmond led off the fifth inning with his second home run of the night. Gerardo Parra reached on a throwing error by Ryan Schimpf, took third base on a single by Alexi Amarista, and scored on a Garneau single. Amarista later scored on a LeMahieu single.

In the seventh inning, Blackmon drove in Garneau with a double.

Senzatela (4-1, 2.84) pitched six innings, surrendering three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Cory Spangenberg scored on a Yangervis Solarte sacrifice double play (I don’t know, but it happened) in the first inning. Erick Aybar hit a solo home run and Jabari Blash scored on a Myers double in the fifth inning.

Saturday was the annual Padres FanFest. Originally, I was going to write a recap of my day. But I was so bored there I didn’t even bother taking any notes and only took a couple of photos. I’ll let Ryan sum up the rest of my feelings on the last few FanFests:

Now that we have that (not unexpected) disappointment out of the way, I ended up going to Bub’s at the Ballpark with your good friend and mine, Nathan Zack. The plan was to meet Dave and Laura Perek there, which has become sort of an annual tradition for Nathan whenever he’s in town. I had never met Dave or Laura before, even though we’ve followed each other on Twitter for years, so I was excited to finally get to do that.

Over the course of the two hours we spent at Bub’s, I was introduced to a little game the three of them play amongst themselves where they make predictions about the upcoming season. I was intrigued, to say the least, so I joined them for this year’s edition.

What follows is all of our selections for this game. We don’t know how it’s going to end yet, but I’m pretty sure I nailed every category. I’ve put my selections in bold.

There are no stakes. There is no prize. It’s all for fun.

So, relax, let’s have some fun out here! This game’s fun, OK?

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an afternoon at the pub, watching the Local NFL Team’s home opener (because, if the crowd photos are any sort of accurate, you weren’t at Qualcomm Stadium). Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were were drinking.

The Padres (62-87) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (72-77) yesterday, 6-3, in the final game of 2016 at Coors Field.

Jarred Cosart (0-4, 5.63) couldn’t get past the fourth inning, giving up five runs on five hits and four walks in three and two-thirds innings with four strikeouts. In the fourth inning, Mark Reynolds hit a two-run home run, a bases-loaded walk of DJ LeMahieu scored Tony Wolters, and a single by Carlos Gonzalez drove in Chad Bettis and Charlie Blackmon. Wolters’ single in the fifth inning scored Gerardo Parra.

Bettis (13-7, 4.79) surrendered three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three in five and a third innings. Adam Rosales put the Padres on the board in the second inning with a solo home run. A Wil Myers double in the sixth inning scored Travis Jankowski and Jon Jay.

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. Myers then hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. And, finally, Brett Wallace hit a solo home run in the ninth inning.
