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 (15-20) scored more runs than the Chicago Cubs (25-8) at Wrigley Field last night, 1-0, to sweep the day-night doubleheader and win the three-game series.

Drew Pomeranz (4-3, 1.80) had ten strikeouts in six shutout innings, allowing three hits and three walks. Kevin Quackenbush, Brad Hand, and Fernando Rodney pitched the last three innings in relief. Rodney recorded his tenth save of the season after getting his ninth in yesterday’s early game of the doubleheader.

John Lackey (4-2, 3.54) pitched eight innings, surrendering the Padres’ only run on a Christian Bethancourt solo home run with two outs in the fifth inning. Lackey ended his night with seven strikeouts while giving up three hits and no walks.

The Friars start four games against the Milwaukee Brewers (14-20) at Miller Park tonight at 5:10pm PDT. James Shields (1-5, 3.60) gets the start with Jimmy Nelson (4-2, 3.74) going for the Brewers.

    Is it too early to print playoff tickets? Kidding aside, the Padres are playing good teams tough. Now we get to see how they play against not so good teams. I know, there was a series against the Phillies that ended badly, but the Phils are all kids who don’t know they’re supposed to be bad, and go out trying to win ballgames. They should wake up eventually, though the power arms on that staff make me think the Phil’s rebuilding will be shorter than expected. The Padres, though, might be hurting for starters in a year or two.
