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

The Padres (11-11) scored a lot fewer runs than the Houston Astros (13-7), 14-3, last night at Petco Park. Tyson Ross (1-2, 4.55) lasted five innings, giving up four runs on five hits and two walks with nine strikeouts. Evan Gattis hit a two-run home run with two outs in the first inning to start the Astros off. Chris Carter hit a solo shot in the sixth inning and George Springer had a two-run home run in the seventh, both off of Odrisamer Despaigne. The Padres’ bullpen continued the disturbing trend of throwing gasoline on the fire, as the Astros scored seven runs off Despaigne, Kevin Quackenbush, and Cory Mazzoni.

Roberto Hernandez (1-2, 3.80) meanwhile pitched six innings for the Astros, surrendering all three Padres’ run on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts. Wil Myers and Justin Upton had solo home runs off of Hernandez, in the fifth and sixth innings, respectively. Other than that, whatever the Padres hit seemed to be right at an Astros player.

This afternoon will have Andrew Cashner (1-2, 2.63) taking the mound against the Astros and Dallas Keuchel (2-0, 0.62) at 12:40pm PDT in the final game of the series at Petco Park. It’s the first of five Way Back Wednesday afternoons of the 2015 season, in which the Friars will be wearing the brown pinstriped uniforms originally worn from 1985-90.
