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 (22-34) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (24-30) last night, 4-0, in the first game of three at Petco Park.

Drew Pomeranz (5-5, 2.22) pitched seven shutout innings, allowing two hits and two walks while striking out eight batters. The Rockies only had two men reach base in an inning twice. In the second inning. Mark Reynolds reached on an error by Yangervis Solarte with two out and Gerardo Parra walked. In the third inning, Charlie Blackmon walked with one out and Nolan Arenado singled with two outs. Both times, Pomeranz got out of the inning.

Chris Rusin (1-4, 4.62) gave up four runs (three earned) on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts in seven innings pitched. With no outs and Jon Jay & Wil Myers on base, Matt Kemp hit a towering three-run home run to left field. The Padres measured the home run at 458 feet while MLB had it at 451 feet. Either way, Kemp hit it a long, long way. In the fourth inning, Melvin Upton Jr. stole home with Pomeranz up to bat. Upton avoided the tag by catcher Nick Hundley and was called safe.

Andrew Cashner (2-5, 4.79) gets the start in tonight’s second game of the series against Chad Bettis (4-4, 4.56). First pitch is at 7:10pm PDT.

    Nick Canepa said Upton’s steal of home was the first since Bobby Doerr, who was with the PCL Padres only in their first year, 1936, before starting a HOF career for Boston in ’37. Can that be true? No Padre has succeeded in EIGHTY YEARS?
    BTW: Bobby Doerr is still alive, age 98.
