Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon at the pub, melting into a pile of viscous goo. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (67-74) scored fewer runs than the Colorado Rockies (58-82), 4-3, yesterday afternoon in the Rockies final game at Petco Park for 2015. The temperature at first pitch registered as 93°, the hottest game-time temperature since Petco Park opened.

Tyson Ross (10-10, 3.24) gave up three runs in seven innings of work on four hits — including three solo home runs — and no walks with six strikeouts. Nolan Arenado hit a home run in the first inning, Corey Dickerson hit another in the sixth inning, and Carlos Gonzalez connected for one in the seventh inning. Daniel Descalso then led off the eighth inning with a solo home run off Joaquin Benoit for the go-ahead run.

Jorge De La Rosa (9-6, 4.28) pitched five innings, surrendering three runs on six hits and three walks with six strikeouts. In the fourth inning, Matt Kemp led off with a solo home run. De La Rosa then loaded the bases on singles by Derek Norris and Yangervis Solarte and a walk to Melvin Upton Jr. After Clint Barmes struck out, Ross hit a sacrifice fly to score Norris. De La Rosa loaded the bases again in the fifth inning with singles by Wil Myers and Jedd Gyorko and a walk of Kemp. Myers then scored on a sacrifice fly from Norris.

The Padres begin a nine-game road trip tonight in San Francisco at 7:15pm PDT as Andrew Cashner (5-14, 4.11) takes on Jake Peavy (5-6, 4.41) and the San Francisco Giants (72-68).
