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 (33-44) scored fewer runs than the Cincinnati Reds (29-46), 3-0, yesterday at Great American Ballpark. The Padres remain 1-for-infinity during Sunday games.

Luis Perdomo (2-3, 8.49) gave up all three runs on seven hits and three walks in six innings while striking out five. In the second inning, Jose Peraza scored on a double by Tucker Barnhart. Jay Bruce led off the fourth inning with a solo home run. Anthony DeSclafani singled in the sixth inning to drive in Adam Duvall.

DeSclafani (2-0, 1.52) shutout the Padres over eight innings, surrendering five hits and no walks with five strikeouts. The Padres left just three men on base. Alexei Ramirez was caught stealing in the first inning. Melvin Upton Jr. was caught on the basepaths twice: caught stealing in the second inning and picked off first base in the fifth inning.

The Padres come back home to play the Baltimore Orioles (45-30) for another two games starting tomorrow at 7:10pm PDT. Erik Johnson (0-5, 8.54) takes the hill versus Ubaldo Jimenez (4-7, 6.97).

The Head-First Slide

Everth Cabrera really likes to slide into bases head-first. I mean, REALLY likes to do it.

So, just to be clear, Jeff Pearlman of SI writing for Esquire, wearing an ’84 Padres cap is the equivalent to working at a Taco Bell? The hell kinda thing is that to say? BP from Lobshots here, that’s an article from last summer, and I take issue with almost everything Pearlman said. Everything except the part about Tony Gwynn being a legend and the ’84 Padres hat being the best all-time. As fans, we are fully immersed in the era of the throwback. More now than ever, our jerseys, our hats, our everything is throwback. We happen to live in the best city in America, and our two professional sports teams just happen to have the best throwback gear, the Padres’ brown and mustard, and the Bolts’ powder blues. The hats you see above were a rarity at Padres games just a few years ago, and now, they’re everywhere… might as well learn a little bit about ’em.
