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

The Padres (33-48) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (55-28), 8-0, last night at Petco Park.

Dillon Overton‘s Padres debut was a forgettable one. Overton (0-1, 6.65) lasted four and two-thirds innings, giving up four runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out three. Logan Forsythe‘s first inning single to drive in Chris Taylor was all the Dodgers needed, but they didn’t stop there. Starting pitcher Rich Hill drove in Forsythe with a single in the fourth inning. Corey Seager and Justin Turner hit back-to-back solo home runs to lead off the fifth inning. In the seventh inning, Taylor hit a grand slam, the second in two nights for the Dodgers.

Hill (5-4, 4.00) shutout the Padres over seven innings, giving up four hits and a walk with eleven strikeouts. Manuel Margot was 2-for-3 with a walk. Austin Hedges and Erick Aybar each had one of the other two hits for the Padres.

Jhoulys Chacin (6-7, 4.76) starts this afternoon’s series finale against Kenta Maeda (6-3, 4.15) beginning at 1:40pm PDT.

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

The Padres (33-47) scored fewer runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (54-28) last night, 10-4, in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Clayton Richard (5-8, 4.85) pitched four and a third innings, allowing seven runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out three. Austin Barnes hit a grand slam home run in the first inning. Justin Turner hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. The Dodgers loaded the bases in the fifth inning and Chris Taylor walked to bring Logan Forsythe home. Barnes hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning.

Dodgers’ starter Alex Wood took offense to what he thought was Jose Pirela attempting to steal signs in the first inning and the umpires warned both dugouts. When Andy Green and Dave Roberts came out to talk to the umpires about their warning, Green and Roberts started arguing with each other. As Green started to walk away, Roberts charged him. Both benches cleared and Green and Roberts were both ejected.

Wood (9-0, 1.83) gave up one run on two hits and three walks with eight strikeouts in six innings. Manuel Margot scored on Cory Spangenberg‘s ground out in the fourth inning. In the seventh inning, Allen Cordoba‘s sacrifice fly drove in Matt Szczur. Hector Sanchez hit a pinch-hit two-run home run in the ninth inning.

Tonight Dillon Overton (0-0, 6.38) makes his Padres debut against Rich Hill (4-4, 4.60) with first pitch scheduled for 7:10pm PDT.
