Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending the evening at the movies, watching an advanced screening of Everest, then hanging out at Islands during their late night Happy Hour. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (68-78) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (69-76), 6-4, last night at Chase Field.

Tyson Ross (10-10, 3.18) pitched six innings, throwing 106 pitches and allowing a run on four hits and three walks with nine strikeouts. The only run charged to Ross came in the sixth inning. After walking Paul Goldschmidt and giving up a single to David Peralta, Welington Castillo hit an RBI single to score Goldschmidt. The Padres’ bullpen literally lost this game, giving up five runs in the seventh inning. With Bud Norris starting the inning, Chris Owings led off with a walk and scored on Nick Ahmed‘s triple. Aaron Hill then walked and was pinch-ran for by Socrates Brito. Norris was relieved by Kevin Quackenbush and A.J. Pollock then hit a three-run home run. Ender Inciarte singled then stole second base and Goldschmidt walked. Marc Rzepczynski came in to pitch and Peralta struck out for the first out of the inning. Nick Vincent came into the game and got Castillo to fly out for the second out, then Brandon Drury singled to score Inciarte.

Jhoulys Chacin (0-1, 2.95) pitched five innings, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks with three strikeouts. Justin Upton hit his 26th home run to lead off the second inning. Yangervis Solarte ground into a double-play with the bases loaded and no outs in the third inning, allowing Ross to score from third base. In the seventh inning, an RBI single from Travis Jankowski scored Austin Hedges from second base. And in the eighth inning, a wild pitch to pinch-hitter Brett Wallace let Upton come home from third base.

Tonight at 6:40pm PDT, Andrew Cashner (5-15, 4.27) will start against the Diamondbacks’ Robbie Ray (4-11, 3.54) in the final game of the season at Chase Field.
