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

The Padres (74-85) scored more runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (68-91), 3-1, yesterday afternoon in the final home game of the 2015 season at Petco Park.

Ian Kennedy (9-15, 4.28) — making his last start of 2015, and possibly his last in a Padres’ uniform — pitched six innings, allowing the one run and striking out eleven with five hits and no walks. Shane Peterson hit a pinch-hit solo home run to lead off the sixth inning.

Taylor Jungmann (9-8, 3.77) lasted just three innings, giving up three runs on four hits and four walks with two strikeouts. Yangervis Solarte hit a two-run home run in the third inning. Cory Spangenberg‘s RBI single in the fourth added an insurance run.

Wil Myers left the game in the fourth inning because of left wrist soreness. The same wrist he had surgery on earlier this season that caused him to miss 98 games during his recovery.

The Padres travel all the way to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers (89-70) for the final three-game series of 2015. Casey Kelly (0-1, 9.00) gets another start and will face Alex Wood (4-6, 4.55) tonight at 7:10pm PDT.

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

The Padres (52-56) scored fewer runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (46-63) in the third of four games at Miller Park, 8-5, last night.

Ian Kennedy (6-10, 4.49) had trouble right at the start, giving up four runs in the first inning, but settled down and shut the Brewers down, allowing seven hits and no walks with seven strikeouts. In that first inning, Jonathan Lucroy hit a two-run home run with no outs. After Ryan Braun flied out, Adam Lind singled, Khris Davis hit a ground-rule double, and Shane Peterson tripled to knock in the other two runs. Marcos Mateo relieved Kennedy to start the eighth inning, and proceeded to pour gasoline on Kennedy’s performance. Mateo gave up the other four runs (three earned) on four hits and a walk in that inning.

Taylor Jungmann (6-3, 2.26) gave up two runs on six hits and no walks with eight strikeouts in seven innings. In the first, a sacrifice fly by Matt Kemp scored Alexi Amarista. In the seventh inning, Yonder Alonso scored on a Will Venable single. In the ninth inning, the Padres had a mini-rally going after an RBI double by Venable scored Justin Upton and Brett Wallace homered to right field. But it wasn’t enough.

 

Today at 11:10am PDT, the Friars will try to leave Milwaukee with a split series. Odrisamer Despaigne (5-7, 4.75) gets the call against Matt Garza (5-12, 5.17).

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

The Padres (52-55) scored fewer runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (45-63) last night at Miller Park, 4-1.

Andrew Cashner (4-11, 4.08) pitched six innings, allowing two runs on eight hits and four walks with five strikeouts. In the third inning, Cashner walked Ryan Braun, who then stole second, advanced to third on a fielder’s choice, and scored on a single from Khris Davis. In the fourth inning, Shane Peterson tripled to lead off the inning and scored on an Elian Herrera single. Braun scored another run in the seventh inning, as did Adam Lind.

Jimmy Nelson (9-9, 3.57) gave up one unearned run in his six and two-thirds innings on three hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Matt Kemp reached on a two-base error to lead off the fourth inning, advanced to third on a wild pitch, and scored on a sacrifice fly by Yonder Alonso. That’s all she wrote.

In tonight’s third game of the series at Miller Park, Ian Kennedy (6-9, 4.44) gets the start versus Taylor Jungmann (5-3, 2.23) beginning at 5:10pm PDT.

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

The Padres (52-54) scored more runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (44-63), 13-5, last night in the first game of four at Miller Park.

The Padres teed off on Wily Peralta (2-5, 3.90), who surrendered six runs on eight hits and three walks with two strikeouts in three and a third innings. And then they teed off on the Brewers’ bullpen, scoring seven runs on five hits and three walks with six strikeouts. Yangervis Solarte had two home runs and four RBI in four at-bats. Jedd Gyorko went 3-for-5 with two RBI, including a solo home run. Alexi Amarista went 2-for-5 with three RBI. Even Tyson Ross got into the act with his RBI single in the second inning.

Ross (8-8, 3.37) gave up three runs (two earned) in six innings on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts. In the first inning, a single by Adam Lind drove in Jonathan Lucroy and put Ryan Braun at third base. After striking out Khris Davis, a Ross throwing error to third allowed Braun to score. In the sixth inning, a run scored on a combination of singles by Shane Peterson and Jean Segura, a wild pitch, and a single by Hernan Perez that scored Peterson. Scooter Gennett connected off Marcos Mateo in the ninth inning for a solo home run.

Tonight at Miller Park, Andrew Cashner (4-10, 4.13) gets the start versus the Brewers’ Jimmy Nelson (8-9, 3.76) starting at 5:10pm PDT.
