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

Jeff Hoffman (3-0, 2.61) gave up just one run on three hits and no walks while striking out nine in seven innings. Hunter Renfroe led off the fifth inning with a solo home run off the top level facade of the Western Metal Building.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an afternoon at the pub, watching the Local NFL Team’s home opener (because, if the crowd photos are any sort of accurate, you weren’t at Qualcomm Stadium). Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were were drinking.

The Padres (62-87) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (72-77) yesterday, 6-3, in the final game of 2016 at Coors Field.

Jarred Cosart (0-4, 5.63) couldn’t get past the fourth inning, giving up five runs on five hits and four walks in three and two-thirds innings with four strikeouts. In the fourth inning, Mark Reynolds hit a two-run home run, a bases-loaded walk of DJ LeMahieu scored Tony Wolters, and a single by Carlos Gonzalez drove in Chad Bettis and Charlie Blackmon. Wolters’ single in the fifth inning scored Gerardo Parra.

Bettis (13-7, 4.79) surrendered three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three in five and a third innings. Adam Rosales put the Padres on the board in the second inning with a solo home run. A Wil Myers double in the sixth inning scored Travis Jankowski and Jon Jay.

The Padres come back to Petco Park to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks (63-86) for three games starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Clayton Richard (2-3, 3.00) gets the start tonight against Braden Shipley (4-3, 5.56). The game will be on Fox Sports 1, not Fox Sports San Diego.

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

The Padres (11-17) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (13-14), 2-0, to drop the third of three games at Petco Park yesterday. The Friars are 0-9 so far in the final game of a series this season. That’s probably not ideal.

Cesar Vargas (0-1, 1.10) gave up one run in six innings, striking out three with four hits and three walks. Cristhian Adames ground into a fielder’s choice to score Tony Wolters in the fifth inning. In the ninth inning, with Brad Hand pitching, a sacrifice squeeze from DJ LeMahieu brought Mark Reynolds home for the second and final run.

Tyler Chatwood (4-2, 2.15) struck out seven in eight innings on three hits and a walk. The closest the Padres came to scoring a run came in the seventh inning. With two outs, Brett Wallace doubled and Adam Rosales came into pinch run for him. Melvin Upton Jr. then walked, but Alexei Ramirez grounded out to end any threat.

The New York Mets (17-9) come to Petco Park for four games starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Colin Rea (2-1, 4.61) takes the hill against Jacob deGrom (3-0, 1.02).
