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).
