Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an evening at the cantina. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (12-17) scored more runs than the New York Mets (17-10) last night, 5-3, at Petco Park in the first of four games.

Colin Rea (3-1, 3.82) allowed just a walk to David Wright in the first inning and had a no-hitter going through six and two-thirds innings. Yoenis Cespedes hit a ground ball single to right field with two outs in the seventh to deny the Padres their first no-hitter in their history. In the ninth inning, Rea gave up a leadoff solo home run to Curtis Granderson. He was relieved by Brad Hand, who walked Wright and then retired Michael Conforto before surrendering a two-run home run to Cespedes. Fernando Rodney then came in and got the last two outs for his seventh save. Rea left having pitched eight innings and allowing one run on three hits and a walk with five strikeouts.

Jacob deGrom (3-1, 1.99) gave up three runs on eight hits and a walk with two strikeouts in five innings pitched. Wil Myers hit a solo home run with one out in the first inning. Derek Norris was a triple short of the cycle, hitting a double in the second inning and scoring on Rea’s RBI single. In the third inning, Alexei Ramirez doubled to bring Brett Wallace home. Norris hit a solo home run with one out in the sixth inning, followed by an RBI-double by Jon Jay to score Jemile Weeks on a throwing error by Conforto.

Tonight’s second game of the series at 7:40pm has Drew Pomeranz (2-3, 2.48) up against Noah Syndergaard (2-1, 2.51).
