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

The Padres (70-81) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (79-71) last night, 4-2, in a game that featured a combined 27 strikeouts by both teams, 16 by the Giants’ batters and 11 by the Padres.

Tyson Ross (10-11, 3.17) struck out eleven in six innings, allowing two runs on four hits and two walks. Trevor Brown‘s RBI double in fifth inning put San Francisco on the board. Brandon Crawford singled in the sixth inning to score Alejandro De Aza. In the seventh inning, Angel Pagan hit a two-run home run.

Chris Heston (11-10, 3.51) shutout the Padres over four and a third innings, striking out seven with two hits and five walks. Heston loaded the bases with one out in the fifth inning and was pulled. But George Kontos got Matt Kemp to pop out to first base in foul territory and Justin Upton to fly out to center field. Cory Spangenberg hit a solo home run in the sixth inning and Brett Wallace added a pinch-hit solo home run in the seventh inning.

Andrew Cashner (6-15, 4.25) gets the start tonight against Jake Peavy (7-6, 4.08) at 7:10pm PDT.

    Well, you know, chances of beating out the Zonies for third place are fading, so we may as well give the Giants what little hope they have left, and give the Padres a chance to have a protected pick in next June’s draft. Then, if A.J. can clear enough payroll, he can maybe sign a free agent pitcher without losing the number one pick again. I’m just looking for a sliver of silver in that black cloud overhead.
