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

The Padres (14-12) scored less than 14 runs against the Colorado Rockies (11-13) yesterday afternoon, yet still emerged victorious with a score of 8-6 to sweep the three-game series at Petco Park. The game featured a total of seven homers: three for the Padres and four for the Rockies. Nolan Arenado and Charlie Blackmon had two apiece for the Rockies. Justin Upton, Derek Norris, and Jedd Gyorko each had one for the Friars.

James Shields (3-0, 3.72) struggled through five and a third innings, giving up five runs on nine hits and no walks with seven strikeouts. Arenado hit both of his home runs off Shields. Blackmon hit one off Shields and his second one off of Craig Kimbrel, who earned his eighth save of the season after closing out the game in the ninth inning.

Kyle Kendrick (1-4, 8.73) pitched five innings, giving up six runs on six hits and no walks with two strikeouts. Upton’s home run came in the first inning off of Kendrick while Norris’ connected off of Kendrick in the fourth inning. Gyorko’s came in the sixth inning off of Brooks Brown.

The Friars travel to San Francisco to take on the Giants for three games starting tonight at 7:15pm PDT. Tyson Ross (1-2, 4.55) takes the mound against Madison Bumgarner (2-1, 3.73).
