Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.
The Padres (59-74) scored more runs than the San Francisco Giants (53-82) last night, 5-0, in the finale of their three-game series at Petco Park.
Travis Wood (3-4, 5.70) pitched four and a third shutout innings, allowing six hits and four walks with one strikeout. Craig Stammen, Buddy Baumann, Kirby Yates, and Brad Hand combined to shut the Giants out over the final four and two-thirds innings.
Ty Blach (8-11, 4.68) gave up three runs on five hits and two walks while striking out one in five and two-thirds innings. Wood hit a solo home run in the third inning. Jose Pirela hit a solo home run, Wil Myers scored on a wild pitch by Kyle Crick, and Austin Hedges single drove in Jabari Blash in the sixth inning. Blash hit a single in the eighth inning to drive in Myers.
The Los Angeles Dodgers (91-39) come to Petco Park for four games beginning tomorrow at 7:10pm PDT. Dinelson Lamet (7-5, 4.60) starts tomorrow against Clayton Kershaw (15-2, 2.04), who comes off the disabled list to make his first start since July.

63 pitches. This is fine.

The Padres have three hits, and two of them are by different pitchers.

Teams have combined for nine total hits. Four by pitchers. And a pitcher (Wood) has driven in and scored the only run of the night so far.
