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 (15-29) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (25-18), 10-1, last night in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Jered Weaver (0-5, 7.44) stunk. Seven earned runs on five hits and two walks in two-thirds of an inning. In fact, he surpassed Edinson Volquez‘ Padres record for futility.*

Fortunately, Dustin has already written a summation of Weaver’s not-even-an-inning of work, so I won’t bother with that. Craig Stammen pitched three and a third innings of relief, with David Peralta leading off the sixth inning with a solo home run and Jake Lamb hit his second bomb of the night one out later. In lighter news, Luis Sardinas pitched a shutout ninth inning of relief. So at least they had that going for them. Which is nice.

Taijuan Walker (4-3, 3.46) shut out the Padres over six innings on two hits and three walks while striking out three. Allen Cordoba scored the Padres lone run in the ninth inning on Ryan Schimpf‘s single.

Tonight’s second game pits Luis Perdomo (0-0, 4.19) against Robbie Ray (2-3, 4.57) starting at 7:10pm PDT.

*I have no idea if that’s actually a record. But it was the worst pitching performance I’ve ever seen from a Padre, until last night that is.
