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

The Padres (7-15) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (12-11), 13-9, yesterday afternoon at AT&T Park.

Andrew Cashner (1-2, 4.92) lasted just two and two-thirds innings while throwing 89 pitches, giving up six runs (three earned) on four hits and four walks with two strikeouts. Michael Kirkman came in in relief and surrendered another four runs in his one and a third innings. Then Luis Perdomo gave up another three runs in his two innings. Brad Hand and Fernando Rodney finally stopped the bleeding to close out the game, but it was much too late at that point.

Jeff Samardzija (3-1, 3.86) gave up five runs on five hits and two walks over five and two-thirds innings. Matt Kemp hit a two-run home run off Samardzija in the third inning. Wil Myers hit a three-run home run in the seventh inning to extend his hitting streak to twelve games. And Adam Rosales hit a solo home run in the ninth inning.

The Padres have the day off today as they travel to Chavez Ravine to take on the Los Angeles Dodgers (12-10) for three games at Dodger Stadium. Friday’s game will pit Cesar Vargas (0-0, 1.80) against Alex Wood (1-2, 6.00) starting at 7:10pm PDT.
