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 (7-12) scored fewer runs than the St Louis Cardinals (10-8), 8-5, in the finale of their three game series at Petco Park.

Colin Rea (1-1, 5.06) pitched five innings, giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hit and two walks while striking out two. The Padres had a two-run lead when Kevin Quackenbush came into relieve Rea in the sixth inning, and Quackenbush gave up back-to-back solo home runs to Jedd Gyorko and Aldemys Diaz with no outs. Ryan Buchter pitched the next two inning without a run scored. Then Brandon Maurer came in to pitch the eighth inning and proceeded to give up three runs.

Mike Leake (0-2, 5.64) also pitched five innings, but gave up five runs (three earned) on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts. Christian Bethancourt hit a sacrifice fly in the first inning for one RBI and a solo home run in the fourth inning for another. Melvin Upton Jr.‘s RBI groundout in the second inning and an RBI single in the fifth inning added two more, before he was ejected for arguing balls & strikes in the seventh inning. An RBI single by Alexei Ramirez in the fifth inning was the final time a Padre crossed home plate for the rest of the afternoon.

Tonight, the Friars travel to AT&T Park to face the San Francisco Giants (9-11) for three games. Drew Pomeranz (2-1, 2.04) takes on Madison Bumgarner (1-2, 3.91) tonight at 7:15pm PDT.
