Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub at a mile high of elevation. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (10-5) once again scored more runs, 7-6, than the Colorado Rockies (7-7) at Coors Field yesterday. Padres’ starter Brandon Morrow (0-0, 3.15) made it through six innings, giving up five runs on six hits and a walk with three strikeouts. Nick Hundley, DJ LeMahieu, Charlie Blackmon (2), and Troy Tulowitzki all had RBI while facing Morrow. Hundley added another with a solo home run in the ninth inning against Craig Kimbrel, who then retired the side for his fifth save.

Tyler Matzek (1-0, 2.40) lasted five innings while surrendering just two runs on four hits and six walks with three strikeouts. The Friars managed to run themselves out of a couple of scoring opportunities. Clint Barmes had a solo home run off of Matzek leading off the third inning. Barmes was then caught between third and home after ignoring the stop sign from the third base coach.

The Padres were down by two, 5-3, going into the eighth inning. Pinch-hitter Yangervis Solarte singled to right field with two men on, scoring Will Middlebrooks. Alexi Amarista then tried a safety squeeze that didn’t work, as Yonder Alonso was out when the pitcher threw home, as Amarista reached on a Fielder’s Choice. Wil Myers then hit a single that scored Solarte to tie up the game at five. Derek Norris then hit a double that scored Amarista and Myers to put the Padres ahead for good.

Tonight at 5:40pm PDT, the third game of the series from Coors Field has James Shields (2-0, 2.84) taking the mound versus Kyle Kendrick (1-2, 7.56).
