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 (41-51) scored more runs than the San Francisco Giants (57-36) yesterday afternoon, 5-3, to complete a three-game series sweep at Petco Park. It was the first series sweep of 2016 for the Padres.

Edwin Jackson (1-1, 4.76) had a no-hitter through six and a third innings in his Padres debut, until Conor Gillaspie hit a three-run home run with one out in the seventh inning. That was the only hit against Jackson, who struck out four with five walks and two batters reaching on errors, for three runs (two earned). Ryan Schimpf had a throwing error in the second inning and Jackson misplayed a soft chopper in the seventh inning.

Johnny Cueto (13-2, 2.64) pitched five innings, giving up four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four. Matt Kemp led off the fourth inning with a solo home run and Christian Bethancourt added his own solo home run two outs later. RBI singles in the sixth inning by Schimpf and Jackson added two more runs. Yangervis Solarte hit a solo home run in the seventh inning.

The Friars begin a ten-game road trip tonight at 5:15pm PDT against the St Louis Cardinals (47-44). Christian Friedrich (4-5, 4.50) gets the start against Mike Leake (6-7, 4.14) in the first of four games at Busch Stadium.
