Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were (day) drinking.
The Padres tried their best to avoid the sweep at the hands of the Dodgers. But their best wasn’t good enough.
For the second day in a row, the Padres wasted a stellar pitching performance from their starter. Tyson Ross threw 5 innings, striking out 10 while giving up 1 run on 5 hits and one walk. The only run came in the third when Alexi Amarista drove in Reymond Fuentes, who had both his first Major League stolen base and hit on Sunday.
Yasiel Puig broke a 1-1 tie with his 14th home run in the 6th inning. That proved to be the difference.
The Padres start a 3-game series this afternoon with the San Francisco Giants. Ian Kennedy goes against Barry Zito at 12:40pm PDT. Tomorrow night it’s Robbie Erlin against Madison Bumgarner. And Wednesday afternoon pits Eric Stults against Tim Lincecum.

“The back is still bothering him. He was making progress and that has sort of reached a plateau. He didn’t quite make the progress in the next 24 hours that he did the first 24.”

Fans at the Dodger Padre game look really hot. They probably wish Headley was batting, so they could get a nice breeze.

Enberg is stoked about on those dollar hot dogs. He has good taste. Foooood. #PPLive

Trying to follow Enberg's storytelling is difficult.

Padres lineup is so depleted that it is pointless to get too concerned about Wins and Losses. Pads starting rotation development is focus

Quick check of Gameday reveals that Ronny Cedeño hasn't homered. #sadface

#Padres Reymond Fuentes earlier recorded his first MLB stolen base, now he has his first Major League hit. Memorable day for Fuentes.

So Tyson Ross strikes out 10 in 5.0 IP and only gives up 1 ER and a single walk, but Grienke is the star of the game? Got it, FSSD.
