Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (26-31) failed in their attempt to sweep the Chicago White Sox (29-29), losing the series finale yesterday afternoon 4-1 at US Cellular Field.  White Sox starter Chris Sale (5-0, 1.59) was nearly unhittable, pitching a 9-strikeout complete game with just two baserunners, both coming in the fifth inning: a solo home run from Chase Headley followed by a single from Tommy Medica.

Meanwhile, Eric Stults (2-6, 5.03) pitched six innings for the Padres, giving up all four runs on 5 hits — including solo home runs from Paul Konerko and Tyler Flowers — and a walk with 6 strikeouts.

Tonight, the Padres come home to Petco Park to start a three-game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates.  Tim Stauffer (2-1, 4.50) takes the mound against Charlie Morton (1-7, 3.29) at 7:10 pm PDT.
