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.

The Padres (15-28) scored fewer runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (24-18), 4-2, yesterday at Petco Park.

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.

Zach Davies (5-2, 5.44) pitched six innings, giving up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out three. Hunter Renfroe hit a solo home run in the second inning. Luis Torrens ground into a double play in the fifth inning and Cory Spangenberg scored from third base.

The Arizona Diamondbacks (24-18) come to Petco Park for three games starting at 7:10pm PDT tonight. Jered Weaver (0-4, 6.05) takes the mound against Taijuan Walker (3-3, 3.91) in the first game.

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 (17-22) scored fewer runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (16-22) in the finale of their four game series at Miller Park, 3-2, splitting the series.

Cesar Vargas (0-2, 3.55) gave up two runs on eight hits and no walk with seven strikeouts in six innings. Chris Carter and Jonathan Lucroy each hit a solo home run in the third inning and fifth inning, respectively. Kevin Quackenbush got the loss after giving up a double to Carter in the seventh inning that scored Lucroy for the go-ahead run.

Zach Davies (1-3, 5.58) pitched five and a third innings, giving up two runs on three hits and no walks with six strikeouts. Travis Jankowski led off the fourth inning with a triple and scored on a Derek Norris sacrifice fly. In the seventh inning, Brett Wallace hit a solo home run to center field.

The Padres are off today as they travel back to San Diego to face the San Francisco Giants (22-18) for three games. Colin Rea (3-1, 4.24) starts on Tuesday against Madison Bumgarner (4-2, 2.72) starting 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 may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (73-85) scored fewer runs than the Milwaukee Brewers (68-90) last night, 5-0. The loss guarantees the Padres will not finish with a better record than last year. And, before the game, Matt Kemp was shut down for the remaining five games of the season with a torn tendon in his right middle finger. I’ll let Vocal Minority Nate handle the obvious joke.

Andrew Cashner (6-16, 4.34) actually pitched fairly well for the first five innings. It was the sixth inning that did him in. The Brewers scored all five runs in the sixth inning, all charged to Cashner, who struck out seven against five hits and two walks.

Justin Upton hit his head on the left field wall while trying to field a ball hit by Logan Schafer that ended up a triple in the first inning and was removed from the game.

Zach Davies (3-2, 3.71) pitched seven innings, giving up five hits and two walks with six strikeouts.

This afternoon is the last home game of the 2015 season for the Padres. Ian Kennedy (8-15, 4.38) gets the start versus Taylor Jungmann (9-7, 3.64) with first pitch scheduled for 3:40pm PDT.
