Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during a morning at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (50-70) scored fewer runs than the Tampa Bay Rays (50-69) in the series finale at Tropicana Field, 2-0.

Christian Friedrich (4-9, 4.69) pitched six and two-thirds innings, giving up both Rays’ runs on a two-run home run by Brad Miller in the first inning. Friedrich finished with five strikeouts, six hits against, and a walk.

Chris Archer (7-16, 4.18) struck out nine over his seven and a third innings. The Padres managed just four hits – all singles – and a walk against Archer.

The Padres come back to Petco Park for four games with the Arizona Diamondbacks (49-70) starting tonight at 7:10pm PDT. Paul Clemens (2-2, 4.73) get the start tonight against Archie Bradley (4-8, 4.91).
