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

The Padres (74-88) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (92-70), 6-3, at Dodger Stadium in the final game of the season.

Frank Garces (0-1, 5.21) started “Bullpen Day” with two innings and giving up a two-run home run in the second inning to Joc Pederson. Marc Rzepczynski pitched an inning, followed by Bud Norris for two innings, and Jon Edwards, Kevin Quackenbush, & Nick Vincent for one inning each. Edwards surrendered two home runs in the sixth inning, a leadoff shot from Corey Seager and a two-out, two-run home run by pinch-hitter Chris Heisey. Ronald Torreyes singled in Pederson for the Dodgers’ sixth run in the eighth inning.

Clayton Kershaw (16-7, 2.13) pitched three and two-thirds innings in what amounted to a tune-up for the postseason. Kershaw struck out seven, getting his 301st strikeout for 2015, while giving up two hits and no walks. The Padres’ only runs came via a three-run home run by Travis Jankowski in the seventh inning off Luis Avilan.

The Padres’ next regular season game is April 4, 2016 against the Dodgers at Petco Park.
