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

The Padres (55-76) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (49-83) in the first of three games at Turner Field, 7-3.

Edwin Jackson (3-5, 6.26) gave up five runs in two and two-thirds innings on seven hits and three walks with no strikeouts. The third inning did Jackson in, as you can see:


In the fifth inning, Dansby Swanson‘s double drove in Tyler Flowers and Jace Peterson.

Julio Teheran (4-9, 3.12) pitched seven innings, allowing two runs on six hits and no walks while striking out eight. Oswaldo Arcia hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. Ryan Schimpf scored the third and final Padres’ run after hitting a triple and coming home on Arcia’s groundout in the ninth inning.

Tonight’s game has Paul Clemens (2-3, 5.06) taking the mound against Matt Wisler (5-11, 4.92) starting at 4:10pm PDT.

    What happened to that other pitcher named Jackson, who had some good starts early in the month? Did Preller trade him too?
