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

The Padres (54-61) scored fewer runs than the Cincinnati Reds (50-62), 7-3, in the series finale yesterday afternoon at Petco Park.

James Shields (8-5, 3.89) had a rough first inning as Billy Hamilton led off the game with a single, Eugenio Suarez was hit by a pitch, and Hamilton then scored on a Joey Votto single. After striking out Todd Frazier, a Jay Bruce triple cleared the bases and made it 3-0 before anyone knew what was going on. In the third inning, Shields balked in Votto from third base while facing Bruce. In the seventh inning, Shields loaded the bases with one out and was pulled for Shawn Kelley. Frazier then hit a sacrifice fly to score Brandon Phillips. Shields ended his day after six and one-third innings, allowing five runs on six hits and four walks with seven strikeouts. Frank Garces gave up a two-run home run to Votto in the ninth inning.

Raisel Iglesias (3-4, 4.70) pitched six innings, with three runs on three hits, a walk, and eight strikeouts. In the Padres’ first, Yangervis Solarte was hit by a pitch, Yonder Alonso singled, and Matt Kemp hit a three-run home run to left field with no outs. That was all the Padres could manage.

The Friars travel to Denver for three games against the Colorado Rockies starting tomorrow at 5:40pm PDT. Tyson Ross (8-9, 3.39) gets the first start versus Yohan Flande (2-1, 3.86).
