Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending your morning drinking coffee and eating Cocoa Puffs before heading to the pub before it opens. And then waiting for the game to resume at lunchtime. And then realizing it’s time to think about dinner after the game finally is done. Oh, and the whole time watching to see if Padres’ GM AJ Preller makes any trades. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking AFTER doing all of that.

The Padres (49-53) scored more runs than the New York Mets (52-50), 8-7, in the final rain-delayed game of three at Citi Field.

Andrew Cashner (4-10, 4.13) did not get the decision after pitching five and a third innings and allowing all seven Mets’ runs (five earned) on six hits and two walk with three strikeouts. Curtis Granderson hit a three-run home run with one out in the fifth inning. Juan Uribe had a solo home run to lead off the sixth inning.

Jon Niese (5-9, 3.63) also did not figure into the decision after giving up one run in six innings on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts. Matt Kemp drove in Melvin Upton Jr. with no outs in the sixth. Derek Norris hit a grand slam off Hansel Robles with one out in the seventh inning to make the score 7-5.

The ninth inning started with the Padres down by two runs. With two outs, Norris fell behind 0-1 when the game was delayed for 44 minutes. When play resumed, Norris hit a bloop single to right field off Jeurys Familia, followed by Kemp’s single past the shortstop. Justin Upton then sent a ball over the right field fence for a three-run home run to give the Friars the lead.

The rain started back up again, stopping play, and the grounds crew had trouble getting the tarp back out over the infield. Since this was the last game of the season between these two teams they had to finish the ninth inning after a two-hour and 52 minute delay. Craig Kimbrel retired the Mets in order to record his 30th save of 2015.

Tonight at 4:10pm PDT, the Padres start a three game series against the Miami Marlins (42-60) at Marlins Park. Ian Kennedy (6-9, 4.58) is the scheduled starter with David Phelps (4-7, 3.86) scheduled for the Marlins.
