Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening at the pub. So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (28-36) dropped the first of three to the Philadelphia Phillies (26-36), 5-2. A.J. Burnett (4-5, 4.24) hadn’t given up a hit through the first 2 2/3 innings until Will Venable hit a solo home run off him with two outs in the third.
Ian Kennedy (5-7, 3.63) was not on his game, giving up all five Phillies runs in his seven innings on seven hits and no walks with three strikeouts. The nail in the coffin was a three-run home run by Marlon Byrd with one out in the fourth inning. Once again, the Padres’ offense was unable to compensate and adapt, with their only other run coming on a Yonder Alonso sacrifice fly to score Carlos Quentin in the sixth inning.

“It’s something that’s just hard to put into words. I feel like we’re right there. I don’t really know what else to say about it, other than we feel like we put ourselves in a good position as far as approach. We’re going out there and trying to get the job done, but it just doesn’t always happen.”

This #Phillies team would be really intimidating if it was 2009

The Padres and Phillies are playing baseball. Ryan Howard just played croquet.

73 with 92% humidity at Citizens Bank Park right now. No wonder Kennedy's jersey looks drenched. #PPLive

The @Padres only have two starters today with OBP above .300. Seriously.

Guys getting vasectomies grimace less than Carlos Quentin.

Top quality bat flip from Quentin. #PPLive

Any adult who pulls out some form of "Little League chatter" at a major league game should be dragged out of the stadium by his uvula.

At least someone had fun yesterday: Grandal, Cabrera slide on tarp
Rollins avoids tag, aka Cabrera’s derp
Pretty much sums this season up:
