Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon at Gameday Sports Bar & Grill at Sycuan Casino. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (34-38) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (34-34), 7-2, yesterday in the final game of three at Chase Field.

Andrew Cashner (2-9, 4.35) gave up seven runs (three earned) — all coming in the second inning — while pitching four innings with four hits, two walks, and five strikeouts. The second inning was a mess, and I don’t feel like typing all of that, so here’s a screenshot of what exactly happened via


As you can see, it was ugly. On a positive note, Frank Garces, Shawn Kelley, and Joaquin Benoit combined to throw four perfect innings of relief. So they have that going for them. Which is nice.

Jeremy Hellickson (5-4, 4.94) gave up both Padres runs in six innings pitched on six hits, no walks, and seven strikeouts. Brett Wallace, pinch-hitting for Cashner in the fifth inning, hit an RBI double to score Will Venable. And, in the sixth inning, Yonder Alonso scored on a Matt Kemp sacrifice fly to right field.

The Padres have today off as they travel back to the Bay Area (Seriously. The schedule makers are idiots.) for three games against the San Francisco Giants (38-32) at AT&T Park. Odrisamer Despaigne (3-5, 4.92) gets the nod Tuesday night against Madison Bumgarner (7-4, 3.09) at 7:15pm PDT.
