Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an afternoon at the pub, watching the Local NFL Team’s home opener (because, if the crowd photos are any sort of accurate, you weren’t at Qualcomm Stadium). Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were were drinking.

The Padres (62-87) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (72-77) yesterday, 6-3, in the final game of 2016 at Coors Field.

Jarred Cosart (0-4, 5.63) couldn’t get past the fourth inning, giving up five runs on five hits and four walks in three and two-thirds innings with four strikeouts. In the fourth inning, Mark Reynolds hit a two-run home run, a bases-loaded walk of DJ LeMahieu scored Tony Wolters, and a single by Carlos Gonzalez drove in Chad Bettis and Charlie Blackmon. Wolters’ single in the fifth inning scored Gerardo Parra.

Bettis (13-7, 4.79) surrendered three runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three in five and a third innings. Adam Rosales put the Padres on the board in the second inning with a solo home run. A Wil Myers double in the sixth inning scored Travis Jankowski and Jon Jay.

The Padres come back to Petco Park to take on the Arizona Diamondbacks (63-86) for three games starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Clayton Richard (2-3, 3.00) gets the start tonight against Braden Shipley (4-3, 5.56). The game will be on Fox Sports 1, not Fox Sports San Diego.
