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 (55-77) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (50-83), 8-1, last night at Turner Field.

Paul Clemens (2-4, 4.93) lasted just three innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits and four walks with two strikeouts. Clemens walked the first three Braves’ batters in the fourth inning before he was pulled. Keith Hessler was the only Padres pitcher — of the five that appeared in the game — to not have a run scored against him. In the first inning, with Matt Kemp at the plate, Ender Inciarte on a balk from Clemens. An Adonis Garcia double scored Matt Wisler in the third inning. In the sixth inning, a double by Gordon Beckham drove in Nick Markakis and Tyler Flowers and a single by Inciarte scored Beckham. Inciarte scored on Freddie Freeman‘s single and a sacrifice fly by Kemp drove in Garcia in the eighth inning.

Former Padre Wisler (6-11, 4.76) pitched six innings and set a new career high for strikeouts with ten, allowing one run on four hits and three walks. Oswaldo Arcia hit a solo home run in the fourth inning for the Padres’ only run.

The Padres try to avoid a sweep today, with Jarred Cosart (0-1, 4.23) getting the start versus Mike Foltynewicz (7-5, 4.30). First pitch is set for 9:10am PDT.
