Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (70-86) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (84-72) yesterday, 8-4, in their four-game series finale and final home game at Petco Park for 2017.

Luis Perdomo (8-11, 4.65) gave up four runs on six hits and two walks with four strikeouts over five innings. Charlie Blackmon scored on Mark Reynolds‘ single in the first inning. In the third inning, a single by Gerardo Parra drove in Blackmon and Ian Desmond‘s single drove in DJ LeMahieu. Pat Valaika doubled in the sixth inning to drive in Trevor Story. Valaika and Blackmon hit back-to-back solo home runs and a Reynolds double drove in Ryan McMahon in the ninth inning.

German Marquez (11-7, 4.38) allowed two runs over five innings on five hits and three walks with three strikeouts. Wil Myers and Yangervis Solarte hit back-to-back solo home runs in the first inning. Christian Villanueva hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning.

The Padres start a three-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers (99-57) at Dodger Stadium tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Travis Wood (4-6, 6.55) gets the start tonight against Yu Darvish (9-12, 3.96).
