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

The Padres (36-40) scored more runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (35-38) last, 4-2.

Tyson Ross (5-7, 3.57) gave up both Diamondbacks runs in the third inning, on a Paul Goldschmidt two-RBI single. Ross ended his night after six innings with two hits, five walks, and seven strikeouts.

The Friars’ pecked away at Robbie Ray (2-3, 1.98), scoring in the first inning on a double by Yonder Alonso. Alonso was then caught in a rundown between second base and third base for his 9,958th TOOTBLAN of the 2015 season so far [Editor’s Note: Actual number may be a little off]. In the third inning, the Padres tied the game as Cory Spangenberg stole third base and Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo‘s throw to third sailed into the left field corner, allowing Spangenberg to score. In the fifth inning, the Padres took the lead on Matt Kemp‘s sacrifice fly to center field scored Spangenberg again. Justin Upton‘s RBI single in the eighth inning scored Kemp and added the Padres final run.

Tonight’s matchup has Andrew Cashner (2-9, 4.35) taking the mound against Jeremy Hellickson (5-4, 4.94) at 7:10pm PDT.

    Take it easy on Yonder’s base running. While on the DL, he worked out, lost weight, and slimmed down, and somehow got the impression he gained foot speed. He overruns the bag toward the next base like the other guys do, but doesn’t yet realize they can do that because they’re fast enough to avoid a rundown (and keep their eye on the ball). Yonder is valiantly testing his limits, hoping to shed the “slug on the basepaths” label that’s unfortunately tattooed on his now-slimmer behind. You can’t blame him for wanting to get rid of the label, it’s a difficult tag to accept, though accept it he must, eventually.
