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

The Padres (20-24) were once again shutout by the Los Angeles Dodgers (26-16), 2-0, last night in the second game of the weekend series at Dodger Stadium. Will Middlebrooks made his first professional start at shortstop for the Padres, for some reason.

Mike Bolsinger (3-0, 0.71) and Kenley Jansen combined to throw a one-hitter — a first inning leadoff single by Yangervis Solarte, who was then part of a double play ground into by Cory Spangenberg — and face the minimum 27 batters. Justin Upton was ejected for arguing about a strike call in the eighth inning.

Ian Kennedy (2-4, 6.11) pitched six innings, giving up both Dodgers’ runs on six hits and no walks with six strikeouts. Kennedy was pretty good, the offense just wasn’t there for him. Joc Pederson hit his twelfth home run to give the Dodgers a 1-0 lead in the first inning.

This afternoon at 1:10pm PDT has James Shields (5-0, 3.74) taking the mound against Carlos Frias (3-1, 2.55) in the final game of the series.

    I’m not worried (yet), but it surely looks like the team needs to shake things up, and Middlebrooks at SS isn’t enough. I recommend the Padres and Lake Elsinore swap teams for a series.
