Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an evening at the pub. Especially when you are subbing in for Scott and are nowhere near the multi-media linking guru. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

Adrian Gonzalez drove in a Corey Seager and then Yasmani Grandal drove in three with a long home run to center in the fourth inning. Josh Reddick added to the scoring with a solo shot in the sixth.

The Padres (49-64) scored more runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (56-55) in the second game of three at PNC Park, 4-0.

Edwin Jackson (3-2, 4.19) did not allow a hit for the first five innings, until Jordy Mercer singled to lead off the sixth inning.

In the seventh inning, Alexei Ramirez hit a single to drive in Ryan Schimpf, who made a perfect slide to get by the tag. Travis Jankowski stole home in the eighth while Alex Dickerson was at bat.

The game started strange, as Yangervis Solarte was pulled before the Padres took the field in the bottom of the first inning, apparently for not running out an infield pop fly.
