Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (67-77) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (82-63) by a score of 6-3 last night in Dodger Stadium.  Andrew Cashner (3-7, 2.40) helped his own cause at the plate as well as throwing seven innings and giving up just 2 runs on nine hits and one walk with two strikeouts.

Roberto Hernandez (8-11, 4.04) meanwhile lasted just three innings.  The Padres scored five runs (two earned) off Hernandez on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts.  Cashner opened up the scoring in the second inning with a two-RBI double, taking third on a fielding error by Hanley Ramirez.  Cashner then scored on Cory Spangenberg‘s single to center field.  Jedd Gyorko followed up in the third with a two-run home run.  Adrian Gonzalez had the only big hit off of Cashner, a two-run home run in the sixth.

The Friars wrap up their season series with the Dodgers tonight at 7:10 pm PDT with Ian Kennedy (10-12, 3.75) facing Dan Haren (12-10, 4.17) at Dodger Stadium.
