Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an evening at the pub. Especially when you were also running the brewery operations of the pub and may have sampled too much of the new marzen being prepared for Octoberfest. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while we were drinking.

The Padres (59-83) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (67-74) last night at Petco Park, 6-3, in the third game of four.

Christian Friedrich (5-10, 4.67) probably had the best start of nhis career as he surrendered only two hits and one walk and allowing no runs while striking out a personal best ten Rockies. Jose Dominguez and Brad Hand worked a sloppy eighth inning to give up three runs and Brandon Maurer pitched a clean ninth to close it out and earn a save.

Jon Gray (9-8, 4.69) gave up six runs (five earned) on eight hits in four innings, while also striking out and walking three batters. Eddie Butler and Chad Qualls blanked the Padres over the final four frames. Wil Myers, looking to break out of his second half funk, went two for three with a walk and drove in two runners. Yangervis Solarte had three hits and also drove in three runs.

Today in the finale will have Edwin Jackson (4-5, 5.55) taking the mound against Chad Bettis (12-7, 4.88) starting at 1:40pm PDT.
