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 were drinking.

The Padres (62-86) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (71-77), 8-0, last night at Coors Field.

Edwin Jackson (4-6, 6.00) gave up all eight runs in four and a third innings on ten hits and two walks with four strikeouts. Nolan Arenado and Tom Murphy each hit a two-run home run in the first inning. Daniel Descalso scored on a Charlie Blackmon triple in the fourth inning. And Murphy hit a three-run home run in the fifth inning.

Jon Gray (10-8, 4.42) pitched a complete game shutout with four hits and no walks while setting a Rockies record with sixteen strikeouts. Wil Myers singled in the first inning, but was picked off of first base for the third out. Jon Jay struck out in the second inning, but reached on a passed ball. Travis Jankowski singled in the third inning. Jay singled in the fourth inning and again in the seventh inning. That was it for the Padres.

Derek Norris had to leave the game with a sprained middle finger in the fifth inning after taking a foul ball off of his hand.

The series finale this afternoon has Jarred Cosart (0-3, 5.16) going up against Chad Bettis (12-7, 4.78). First pitch is at 1:10pm PDT.
