Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an evening at the pub, soaking up all the hot Vedder Cup action. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (21-33) scored more runs than the Seattle Mariners (30-22). A lot more runs. Like 14-6. Like put a really bad beating on them. Like.

Christian Friedrich (2-1, 2.53) pitched five innings, giving up four runs (three earned) on nine hits and four walks while striking out four. Robinson Cano hit a three-run home run with no outs in the first inning to put the Mariners on the board first. Kyle Seager scored in the fifth inning on a Luis Sardinas‘ double play with runners on first and third base. A Seth Smith RBI double in the eighth scored Sardinas. In the ninth inning, Chris Iannetta‘s RBI double brought Seager around to score the Mariners’ sixth and final run.

Felix Hernandez (4-4, 2.86) James Paxton (0-1, 7.32) came up from AAA Tacoma to replace Hernandez, who was placed on the disabled list before the game. Paxton surrendered eight runs (three earned) on ten hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in three and two-thirds innings pitched. The Padres decimated the Mariners’ pitchers, hitting four home runs. A solo shot from Wil Myers and a two-run from Adam Rosales came in the first inning. And Alexei Ramirez added two two-run home runs himself, one in the fourth inning and the other in the sixth inning. Myers ended up with three RBI and Ramirez had five.

Colin Rea (3-2, 4.47) gets the start tonight against Wade Miley (5-2, 4.95) in the final game of this year’s Vedder Cup. First pitch is scheduled for 6:10pm PDT.

    The Vedder Cup is a jockstrap, you can’t/shouldn’t drink from it. Seriously, Eddie Vedder is from Chicago. He lived in San Diego an learned to surf and play guitar. Then he moved to Seattle to join a band. Now he’s back in Chicago and is a CUBS fan, with no real connection to San Diego or Seattle. Why should we (both cities) care about Eddie Vedder? The Padres played against the Seattle Indians in the PCL, so it should be the PCL cup.
