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

The Padres (68-94) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (69-93), 3-2, in yesterday afternoon’s season finale at Chase Field.

Paul Clemens (4-5, 4.04) pitched six innings, allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out seven. Brandon Drury scored on a second inning Chris Owings groundout. Drury hit a solo home run in the eighth inning. In the ninth inning, Philip Gosselin‘s single drove in Socrates Brito to win the game for the Diamondbacks.

Matt Koch (1-1, 2.00) gave up one run in six innings on five hits and no walks with three strikeouts. Hunter Renfroe hit an RBI double to score Wil Myers in the fourth inning. Back-to-back doubles by Austin Hedges and Luis Sardinas in the seventh inning resulted in the Padres’ last run scored.

The Padres are off for the next 182 days as they travel to Los Angeles for four games against the Dodgers (0-0) at Dodger Stadium on April 3, 2017.

    Now just left with the hangover from the season. Don’t even know if the GM we have been going steady with for the past two years will be here past the next few days. I sure wouldn’t mind if his dadDEE left town, though. Here’s to hope for the offseason, a new CBA that gets us back in the international market sooner, and better play in 2017.
