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 (32-33) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (37-26), 4-2 in 12 innings, after a couple of pitchers out of the Padres’ bullpen imploded.

James Shields (7-0, 3.59) was pulled after seven innings, despite throwing just 86 pitches, allowing one run on five hits and three walks with six strikeouts. The one run was from a Andre Ethier home run in the seventh inning. The Dodgers tied the game in the eighth inning when Joaquin Benoit walked Yasiel Puig with two outs and then Adrian Gonzalez doubled to right field, allowing Puig to score. In the twelfth inning, Dale Thayer loaded the bases with one out. After Alex Guerrero lined out for the second out, Gonzalez singled to center field to score Alberto Callaspo and Enrique Hernandez.

Mike Bolsinger (4-1, 2.25) allowed two runs on six hits and three walks with seven strikeouts while pitching just four and two-third innings. In the fifth inning, Justin Upton singled with two outs and the bases loaded to score Shields and Will Venable.

The Oakland A’s come to town for two games starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Tyson Ross (3-6, 3.81) takes the hill tonight against Jesse Hahn (3-5, 3.84).
