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

The Padres (4-9) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (5-8), 7-3, in yesterday’s series finale at Petco Park.

Robbie Erlin (1-2, 4.02) got hit and hit hard in his six innings pitched, giving up six runs on eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Of the eight hits, three were home runs — two of those by Yasmany Tomas, a two-run in the first inning and a solo in the sixth inning. Brandon Drury hit the other one off Erlin in the fourth with one man on base. Philip Gosselin added another solo one to lead off the eighth inning against Kevin Quackenbush.

Patrick Corbin (1-1, 2.75) pitched six and two-thirds innings, giving up three runs (one earned) on six hits and three walk with seven strikeouts. Wil Myers scored the first Padres’ run in the first inning — the first run scored in the first inning this season by a Padre — on a Cory Spangenberg bunt single that Corbin threw into right field for an error, allowing Spangenberg to get to third base. Spangenberg then scored when Matt Kemp hit a sacrifice fly to left field that Rickie Weeks misplayed, but Kemp was then thrown out at third base by Weeks. In the third inning, Melvin Upton Jr. tripled to plate Kemp, who had singled.

The Padres are off today. Their next game is Tuesday at 7:10pm PDT, with the Pittsburgh Pirates (7-6) in town for three games. Colin Rea (0-1, 5.56) takes the hill against Francisco Liriano (1-0, 2.45).
