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 (75-82) were defeated 3-2 by the Colorado Rockies (66-92) last night, another season with more losses than wins* guaranteed.

*I’m trying to stay somewhat positive and not just say “another losing season,” alright?

Robbie Erlin (4-4, 4.53) pitched four innings to start the game, giving up two runs on six hits and two walks with two strikeouts.  Justin Morneau and DJ LeMahieu each had RBI singles, in the third and fourth respectively, off of Erlin.

Jorge De La Rosa (14-11, 4.10) pitched six innings and also gave up two runs on seven hits and four walks with seven strikeouts.  Rymer Liriano and Alexi Amarista had back-to-back RBI singles in the sixth inning off of De La Rosa.

The big blow came in the Rockies’ eighth inning, when Drew Stubbs led off the inning with a home run to right field off of Dale Thayer (4-4, 2.09).  The Padres were unable to get past second base in their half of the eighth.  After Will Venable walked and stole second base, LaTroy Hawkins retired the final three batters for his 23rd save.

This evening is the final home game of 2014.  Joe Wieland (0-0, 9.00) gets the start against Yohan Flande (0-5, 4.91) and the Rockies at 6:10 pm PDT.
