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

The Padres (0-2) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (2-0), 3-0, in the second of three games to open the 2016 season. The Friars debuted their new brown uniforms that will be worn during Friday home games this year. And that was the extent of the Padres highlights.

James Shields (0-1, 4.50) pitched six innings with six hits, a walk, and six strikeouts, giving up all three runs in the fourth inning. Yasiel Puig scored Corey Seager and Adrian Gonzalez with a one-out triple to center field. Carl Crawford then drove in Puig from third with a single to left field.

Scott Kazmir (1-0, 0.00) pitched six innings, giving up one infield hit to Cory Spangenberg in the first inning, with no walks and five strikeouts. The Padres then went hitless until a two-out infield single by Jon Jay in the ninth inning off of Kenley Jansen.

Tonight at 6:10pm PDT, Andrew Cashner starts the series finale against Kenta Maeda. The Padres will be wearing their new Navy blue camo uniforms.

    Well, I never expected to see Cash in position to be the stopper, but if he wants another contract, here’s his chance.
