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

The Padres (18-32) scored fewer runs than the Washington Nationals (29-18), 5-1, last night in the first of three games at Nationals Park.

Luis Perdomo (0-2, 5.61) gave up three runs on six hits and two walks in six innings while striking out six. Trea Turner hit a leadoff home run in the first inning. Michael Taylor hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. And Bryce Harper hit a monstrous two-run home run into the right field upper deck in the seventh inning.

Max Scherzer (5-3, 2.77) was on fire, giving up just three hits and two walks with thirteen strikeouts in eight and two-thirds innings. The lone Padres’ run came on a Ryan Schimpf solo home run in the fourth inning. The Padres did load the bases in the ninth inning off Scherzer, but Koda Glover struck out pinch-hitter Hunter Renfroe to end the game.

Matt Harvey (3-3, 5.36) gave up two runs on three hits and four walks in five inning while striking out six. Cory Spangenberg drove in Ryan Schimpf with a single and Hunter Renfroe scored on Austin Hedges‘ groundout in the second inning. Schimpf hit a solo home run in the sixth inning.

The Padres (15-30) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (26-18) last night at Petco Park, 9-1.

Luis Perdomo (0-1, 5.79) finally got his first decision of 2017, but he did it the hard way. Perdomo lasted just three innings, giving up eight runs on eleven hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Chris Owings and David Peralta scored on a Paul Goldschmidt single, Goldschmidt scored on a Jake Lamb double, and Chris Herrmann hit a two-run home run, all in the first inning. In the second inning, Yasmany Tomas‘ bases loaded single drove in Peralta and Goldschmidt. Peralta scored again in the fourth inning on Lamb’s single. In  the ninth inning, Brandon Maurer threw a wild pitch to Rey Fuentes, allowing Lamb to score.

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

The Padres (15-29) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (25-18), 10-1, last night in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Jered Weaver (0-5, 7.44) stunk. Seven earned runs on five hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning. In fact, he surpassed Edinson Volquez‘ Padres record for futility.*

Fortunately, Dustin has already written a summation of Weaver’s not-even-an-inning of work, so I won’t bother with that. Craig Stammen pitched three and a third innings of relief, with David Peralta leading off the sixth inning with a solo home run and Jake Lamb hit his second bomb of the night one out later. In lighter news, Luis Sardinas pitched a shutout ninth inning of relief. So at least they had that going for them. Which is nice.

Taijuan Walker (4-3, 3.46) shut out the Padres over six innings on two hits and three walks while striking out three. Allen Cordoba scored the Padres lone run in the ninth inning on Ryan Schimpf‘s single.

Tonight’s second game pits Luis Perdomo (0-0, 4.19) against Robbie Ray (2-3, 4.57) starting at 7:10pm PDT.

*I have no idea if that’s actually a record. But it was the worst pitching performance I’ve ever seen from a Padre, until last night that is.

Jarred Cosart (0-1, 2.70) gave up just one run on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in five innings pitched, a Eric Sogard single to drive in Orlando Arcia in the fifth inning, but the Padres’ bullpen blew it once again. This time, Ryan Buchter allowed two runs that were charged to Kevin Quackenbush to cross the plate. In the seventh inning, Sogard doubled in Keon Broxton and Arcia.  Broxton scored again in the ninth inning on a Jonathan Villar groundout.
