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 (17-15) scored more runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (13-16) last night at Chase Field, 6-4, in twelve innings.

Tyson Ross (1-3, 3.98) pitched what was arguably his best game of the season thus far, lasting six innings and giving up just two runs on five hits and two walks with six strikeouts. Craig Kimbrel gave up the other two Diamondbacks’ runs in the ninth inning for his first blown save of the season, which then sent the game into extra innings.

Chase Anderson (0-1, 2.97) pitched seven innings while only giving up one run on five hits and two walks with two strikeouts. Alexi Amarista and Jedd Gyorko had back-to-back highlight defensive plays in the bottom of tenth inning to preserve the tie. Randall Delgado earned the loss when Justin Upton led off the twelfth inning with a solo home run to give the Padres a 5-4 lead. Amarista then hit a RBI single to left field with two outs to give the Padres an insurance run.

This afternoon at 1:10pm PDT, Andrew Cashner (1-5, 3.16) takes the hill in the final game of the series in Phoenix against the Diamondbacks and the always difficult To Be Determined.
