The Padres (55-77) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (50-83), 8-1, last night at Turner Field.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after calling in sick from work to get a late breakfast at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (31-31) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (29-31), 6-4 in 11 innings yesterday, to split the series at Turner Field and finish up the road trip with a 4-3 record.

Jace Peterson had an RBI single and Cameron Maybin hit a sacrifice fly to right field in the seventh to cap the Braves scoring.

Julio Teheran (4-2, 4.78) surrendered four runs in seven innings on four hits and three walk with seven strikeouts. The Friars got out to an early 1-0 lead on Derek Norris‘ single to score Matt Kemp, who reached base after being hit by a pitch which then cleared both teams’ benches in the first inning. In the eighth inning, Alexi Amarista scored on a passed ball, Yangervis Solarte then came in on a Yonder Alonso RBI single, and Cory Spangenberg reached on catcher’s interference with the bases loaded.

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 (30-31) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (29-30), 4-1, yesterday at Turner Field.

Tyson Ross (3-6, 3.81) really only had one bad inning of his six innings pitched, as the Braves scored two in the second. Ross gave up three runs on nine hits and two walks with five strikeouts. A Kelly Johnson single scored Nick Markakis and Andrelton Simmons singled to score A.J. Pierzynski in the second inning. In the third inning, Freddie Freeman ground into a bases-loaded double play that scored Williams Perez. The Braves scored their fourth run in the seventh inning when Cameron Maybin hit a bases-loaded single off Shawn Kelley to score Pierzynski.

Perez (2-0, 2.78) pitched seven innings, allowing just the one run on four hits and two walks with five strikeouts. The Padres were unable to do much of anything against Perez. Cory Spangenberg‘s RBI double to score Ross in the fifth inning was all the offense could manage.

This morning at 9:10am PDT, Andrew Cashner (2-8, 4.05) takes the mound in the final game of the four game series at Turner Field versus Julio Teheran (4-2, 4.87).

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy when you are working during the game that started at 9:10 am PDT.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking orange juice and/or coffee.

The Padres (46-59) were shutout by the Atlanta Braves (57-48) 2-0 at Turner Field yesterday.  Jason Lane (0-1, 0.87) was tagged with the loss despite only giving up one run in six innings on six hits and no walks with two strikeouts.  That one run came off a home run by Evan Gattis in the seventh.  Lane was called up from AAA El Paso to start for Ian Kennedy, who has a sore oblique but is expected to make his next scheduled start on Saturday.

Ervin Santana (10-6, 3.63) shut the Padres’ batters down in his eight innings.  Santana struck out a personal best eleven batters while giving up just five hits and no walks.  But he had some defensive help from Andrelton Simmons, who made a couple of great plays at shortstop.

Tonight, the Friars are back home at Petco Park to take on the St Louis Cardinals for three games.  Tyson Ross (9-10, 2.65) starts the opener tonight at 7:10 pm PDT against Lance Lynn (11-7, 3.05) on Taco Tuesday.  It’s also the Dog Days of Summer, so there will probably be more poop than usual in the Park at the Park.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (46-58) lost 8-3 to the Atlanta Braves (57-48) yesterday at Turner Field.  Eric Stults (3-13, 5.22) had a horrible third inning, giving up six earned runs, but shutout the Braves the two innings before and the three after.  And for once, Stults left a game without surrendering a home run, which is nice, I suppose.

Braves’ starter Mike Minor gave up all three Padres runs in his six and two-thirds innings.  Two of which came from solo home runs by Yangervis Solarte and Rene Rivera.

It’s Baseball for Breakfast this morning at 9:10 am PDT as Jason Lane (0-0, 0.00) gets the call-up from AAA El Paso and the start in place of Ian Kennedy, who has a sore oblique.  The Braves will send Ervin Santana (9-6, 3.87) out to the mound in the series finale at Turner Field.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub after seeing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes instead of watching the game.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.  And watching monkeys fight.

The Padres (46-57) lost 5-3 to the Atlanta Braves (56-48) at Turner Field.  Odrisamer Despaigne (2-2, 1.66) had the first bad game of his short major league career, giving up all five runs (two earned) on six hits and five walks with three strikeout in just 3 2/3 innings.  On a positive note, the bullpen kept the Braves from scoring for the rest of the game.

Julio Teheran (10-6, 2.71) lasted six innings, surrendering three earned runs on nine hits and no walks with five strikeouts.  Yasmani Grandal had two RBI and Yangervis Solarte had the other.

The third game of the four-game series at Turner Field pits Eric Stults (3-12, 5.00) against Mike Minor (3-6, 5.32) at 2:05 pm PDT.  The weird start time is so the Braves can show the Hall of Fame induction ceremony for former Braves players Tony LaRussaGreg Maddux Tom Glavine, former Braves manager Bobby Cox, Georgia native Frank Thomas, and Joe Torre.
