Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon at the pub, sitting in a dark corner in the very back that has the only TV not tuned to the Local NFL Team’s first regular season game. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (67-77) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (75-68), 10-3, yesterday afternoon.

Odrisamer Despaigne (5-9, 5.79) got the start due to Colin Rea‘s sore forearm. Rea is expected to be limited to bullpen duty for the rest of this season. Despaigne went three and a third innings, giving up four runs on five hits and a walk with four strikeouts. All four runs charged to Despaigne came in the second inning, on a Ehire Adrianza RBI single followed by a Mike Leake (yes, the pitcher) three-run home run.
The Giants added two more in the fifth inning on a Matt Duffy RBI single and Buster Posey‘s RBI double. They added two more in the seventh inning on a bases-loaded walk to Posey followed by a sacrifice fly by Marlon Byrd. Against Frank Garces in the eighth inning, the Giants added their final runs on an Angel Pagan RBI single and a Duffy RBI single.

Leake (10-8, 3.72) pitched six innings, allowing three runs on four hits and two walk with two strikeouts. In the first inning, Yangervis Solarte tripled to lead off the game and scored on a Jedd Gyorko groundout. Justin Upton then tripled and scored on a Brett Wallace double. Travis Jankowski hit his first Major League home run in the second inning. That was it. Nothing else happened for the Friars.

The Padres travel to Phoenix for three games against the Arizona Diamondbacks (68-75) starting tonight at 6:40pm PDT. James Shields (11-6, 3.90) takes the hill against Jeremy Hellickson (9-8, 4.60).
