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

The Padres (56-61) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (47-68) last night at Coors Field, 7-5.

Andrew Cashner (4-12, 4.20) gave up four runs on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts over five innings. Carlos Gonzalez ground-out in the first inning to score Charlie Blackmon. In the third inning, Nolan Arenado‘s two-run single plated Jon Gray and Jose Reyes. Cashner started the sixth inning, but walked Gonzalez and Arenado singled. Pat Murphy brought in Marc Rzepczynski who proceeded to let both runners advance on a wild pitch. A Ben Paulsen sacrifice fly brought Gonzalez in to score. Bud Norris then replaced Rzepczynski. DJ LeMahieu singled and Arenado was called out after the ball hit him as he ran to third base. LeMahieu stole second base, reaching third base on an error, and then scored on former Padre Nick Hundley‘s single to left field.

Gray (0-0, 2.40) shut the Padres down in his five innings, giving up just one run on four hits and no walks with five strikeouts. Rockies’ manager Walt Weiss pulled Gray after just 69 pitches. And that’s when the Padres struck. The Friars scored three runs off reliever Gonzalez Germen in the sixth inning on a Justin Upton RBI single and Jedd Gyorko‘s two-run double. In the ninth inning, Melvin Upton Jr. reached on a throwing error by Hundley, bringing Derek Norris home. Pinch-hitter Brett Wallace then singled to score Cory Spangenberg, who reached on a pinch-hit bunt single. Upton Jr. then scored on a Yangervis Solarte sacrifice fly.

This afternoon Ian Kennedy (7-10, 4.37) starts the final game of the three-game series at Coors Field against Chris Rusin (3-5, 4.43). First pitch is scheduled for 1:10pm PDT.
