Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an afternoon at the office, sneaking peeks at the Padres game from work as you also sneak sips from the bottle of bourbon you keep in your desk drawer. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (3-4) scored more runs than the Philadelphia Phillies (2-5), 4-3, yesterday afternoon in the Phillies 2016 home opener at Citizens Bank Park.

Andrew Cashner (0-1, 8.00) went five innings, giving up three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out five. Cesar Hernandez scored on a Odubel Herrera single in the fourth inning. Peter Bourjos hit an RBI double in the fifth inning to plate Cameron Rupp. And, in the sixth inning, a strange play involving the infield fly rule allowed Hernandez to score the Phillies’ third run.

Aaron Nola (0-1, 3.21) pitched seven innings, surrendering four runs on six hits and no walk with nine strikeouts. In the third inning, a Jon Jay double scored Alexei Ramirez and a ground ball out by Cory Spangenberg brought Alexi Amarista home. Wil Myers hit a solo home run leading off the fourth inning. An Amarista sacrifice squeeze bunt with one out in the seventh inning drove Derek Norris home with the eventual winning run.

The Padres and Phillies play the second of four games tonight. Robbie Erlin (1-0, 0.00) starts his first game of 2016 versus Charlie Morton (0-1, 14.73) with first pitch scheduled for 4:05pm PDT.
