Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub, especially when you have to be up at 4:30am to take someone to the airport. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (5-10) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (10-5), 11-2, in the first of three games last night at Petco Park.

Jarred Cosart (0-1, 3.24) came out after three and two-thirds innings with a right hamstring strain, after giving up three runs (one earned) on two hits and two walk while striking out two. Craig Stammen, Zach Lee, Christian Bethancourt, and Erick Aybar (yes, that Erick Aybar) combined to give up another eight runs (six earned) over the last five and a third innings.

Shelby Miller (2-1, 3.50) pitched seven and a third innings, surrendering one run on four hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Wil Myers‘ single drove in Travis Jankowski in the third inning for the Padres’ first run. The Padres’ other run came in the ninth inning when Luis Torrens singled – his first Major League hit – to drive in Allen Cordoba for his first Major League RBI. That’s it.

Tonight’s game at Petco Park, starting at 7:10pm PDT, has Jhoulys Chacin (1-2, 7.80) taking the mound against Zack Greinke (1-1, 4.32).

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 (37-48) scored more runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (38-49), 13-6, to win two games out of a three at Chase Field.

Colin Rea (5-3, 4.95) pitched four and two-thirds innings, giving up four runs on eight hits and three walks with four strikeouts. A Chris Herrmann RBI single in the first inning scored Paul Goldschmidt. In the third inning, Yasmany Tomas‘ single drove in Herrmann and Brandon Drury hit a two-run home run. Jake Lamb hit a two-run home run with Goldschmidt on base in the ninth inning.

Shelby Miller (2-9, 7.14) surrendered six runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out five over five innings. In the fourth inning, Yangervis Solarte singled to score Wil Myers, Melvin Upton Jr. doubled to drive in Matt Kemp, Derek Norris ground out to bring Solarte home, and Ryan Schimpf hit a two-run home run while Upton Jr. was on base. A Solarte double in the fifth inning drove in Travis Jankowski. Myers’ double brought Alex Dickerson in for another run and a single by Kemp brought Jankowski home in the seventh inning. In the ninth inning, Solarte hit a three-run home run with Myers and Kemp on base and Schimpf added a solo home run.

Tonight the Padres are in Los Angeles to begin a four game series against the Dodgers (48-39). Drew Pomeranz (7-7, 2.65) starts the first game against Hyun-jin Ryu, making his first Major League appearance since 2014. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10pm PDT at Dodger Stadium.

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 (4-8) scored more runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (4-8) last night, 5-3, in 14 innings at Petco Park.

Neither Andrew Cashner (0-1, 5.40) nor Shelby Miller (0-1, 8.53) had anything to do with the decision. Cashner pitched six innings and allowed one run on four hit and two walks with five strikeouts. Miller pitched just one and two-thirds innings, allowing two runs on two hits and three walks with one strikeout, before coming out of the game in the second inning after opening up a blister on his pitching hand or something. The point is he was bleeding and couldn’t pitch.

Melvin Upton Jr. hit a two-run home run to straightaway center field with two outs in the bottom of the 14th inning to win the game. Matt Kemp had a solo home run to lead off the third inning. For the rest, just read the recaps below, because I’m so very tired and just want to go to bed.

This afternoon’s series finale at 1:40pm PDT, Robbie Erlin (1-1, 0.93) gets the start against Patrick Corbin (0-1, 3.46). It’s Military Opening Day and the Padres will be wearing the new camouflage uniforms. Which they did in that Wednesday’s game during Opening Week. But I guess now it’s official? Whatever.

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

The Padres (30-29) scored more runs than the Atlanta Braves (27-30), 5-3 in 11 innings yesterday. Neither Ian Kennedy (3-5, 6.48) nor Shelby Miller (5-2, 1.84) figured in the decision.

Kennedy allowed three runs on eight hits and no walk with six strikeouts in five innings. Cameron Maybin, Freddie Freeman, and Nick Markakis each had one RBI for the Braves.

Miller pitched seven innings giving up just one run on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts. Cory Spangenberg had two RBI and Justin Upton, Matt Kemp, and Alexi Amarista each added one RBI apiece for the Padres.

Craig Kimbrel pitched the eleventh inning for his 14th save on the season and 200th of his career.

Tonight at 4:10pm PDT will see James Shields (7-0, 3.58) going against Mike Foltynewicz (3-2, 4.29) at Turner Field. Join us at Mike Hess Brewing in North Park to watch the game and stay for a live Padres And Pints taping with Jesse Agler of Padres Social Hour and broadcasting legend Bob Chandler.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending your evening at the pub — only to find out the pub doesn’t have Fox Sports One on their TV package either.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were watching Jaws: The Revenge on Spike…and drinking.

The Padres (58-63) defeated the St Louis Cardinals (64-57) in a rain-delayed game last night, 9-5.  Starters Jesse Hahn (7-3, 2.96) and Shelby Miller (8-9, 4.25) were left with no decisions, as the Padres came back from deficits of 4-0 and 5-4 to win.

Jake Goebbert hit a bases-loaded triple in the Padres’ four-run third inning.  Jedd Gyorko had five RBI, four of which came via his second grand slam home run of the year and third of his career to put the Friars ahead for good in the seventh inning.  After a one hour and 45 minute rain delay, Seth Smith added the ninth and final run in the eighth with an RBI single to drive in Yangervis Solarte.  And then Smith was thrown out trying to stretch that single into a double.  But, in the end, it didn’t matter.

Today at 11:15 am PDT the Padres will go up against Adam Wainwright (14-7, 2.34) in the final game of the series.  Hopefully, Odrisamer Despaigne (3-3, 2.72) can overcome his recent troubles and help the Padres split the series.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy when you spend an afternoon at work, eyes transfixed to your screen trying to figure out what other Padres are going to be on another team by the 1:00 pm PDT trading deadline.  Then you give up, leave work early, and go drinking.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (48-60) dropped the final game of their three-game series against the St Louis Cardinals (57-50) 6-2 and were denied a series sweep once again.  Odrisamer Despaigne (2-3, 2.68) was hit hard, giving up all six earned runs in 5 2/3 innings on nine hits and a walk with three strikeouts.

The Cardinals’ Shelby Miller (8-8, 4.14) was the winning pitcher after six innings of two-run ball — both runs coming off solo home runs by Jedd Gyorko and Will Venable in the second inning — on three hits and no walks with five strikeouts.

Tonight, the Atlanta Braves come to town for three games starting at 7:10 pm PDT.  Tonight is Wine Fest, which is appropriate, as Eric Stults (3-13, 5.22) is starting for the Friars against the Braves’ Mike Minor (4-6, 5.23).  So get your buzz on before the game.  You’ll likely need it.
