Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub throwing shade at those dirty, stinking Mariners. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking from the Vedder Cup.

The Padres (17-17) scored fewer runs, 11-4, than the Seattle Mariners (15-17) yesterday at Safeco Field. And, quite frankly, it wasn’t even that close of a game. The Mariners tied a club Safeco Field record with six home runs in the game. Kyle Seager, Logan Morrison, Justin Ruggiano, and Nelson Cruz all had one home run. Mike Zunino had two in the game.

Ian Kennedy (2-2, 5.93) gave up four quick runs in the first inning, two of which came off Seager’s home run with two outs. In the third inning, Morrison’s home run put the Mariners up 5-0, and that would have been enough to win the game. Kennedy’s night was over after four and two-thirds innings after surrendering five runs on eight hits and three walks with five strikeouts.

James Paxton (1-2, 4.31) shut out the Padres over six innings, giving up three hits and five walks with five strikeouts. Danny Farquhar came in to start the seventh inning and gave up three runs (one earned) on one hit and two walks in just one-third of an inning.

This evening at 7:10pm PDT from Safeco Field, James Shields (4-0, 4.25) tries to stop the bleeding versus Taijuan Walker (1-3, 8.13).
