Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (32-43) lost 4-2 to the Los Angeles Dodgers (41-35) last night at PETCO Park, in the process snapping their 3-game winning streak. Tyson Ross (6-7, 3.22) took the loss, despite pitching seven innings with only two earned runs on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts. Dodgers’ starter Josh Beckett (5-4, 2.28) earned the win, also pitching seven innings. The difference was Beckett didn’t allow a run.
The Friars scored their two runs in the eighth inning on 2-out RBI singles from Tommy Medica and Rene Rivera. Medica’s single scored pinch-hitter Cameron Maybin, who led off the eighth with a triple to right field. Rivera plated Seth Smith, who walked with two out. But it wasn’t enough.
This afternoon, the Padres wrap up this series with the Dodgers at 1:10pm PDT. Eric Stults takes the hill against Hyun-Jin Ryu and the Dodgers. It’s U.S. Coast Guard Appreciation Day and Kids Fest Sunday.

Pretty sure Cabrera could have ran to first before Gonzalez got there.

I think Beckett wanted to go to the Padres dugout. Even he can’t tell who’s who with these blue Padres jerseys.

There's an energy in Petco Park… And it's being used to power the scoreboard over the visiting dugout

Brown and yellow in the crowd sure pops out in a sea of Dodger blue. #PPLive

The @Dodgers get two in the third, Petco Park erupts. Pro-LA crowd on "Beat LA" giveaway T-shirt night.

Dodger fans spotted wearing shirts saying "She Wants The D". The D is in Dodger script, which only makes it worse.

The San Diego Padres are hitting .214 while Mario Mendoza actually hit .215 for his career, therefore…

I feel for Padres fans. This team lacks talent and/or cast of characters. I mean they don't even have a guy w/ a neck tattoo. I don't think-

I'd like to see Edinson Volquez in a hat like that. Not with the same logo on it, though.

There's something weird about Sweeney and Enberg making fun of a hat worn for safety.
