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

The Padres (57-73) scored fewer runs than the Miami Marlins (66-63), 6-2, at Marlins Park yesterday.

Clayton Richard (6-13, 4.96) gave up five runs on eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in seven-plus innings. In the third inning, Dee Gordon scored on Giancarlo Stanton‘s double and Stanton went to third base on the throw home then scored on a wild pitch to Christian Yelich. Stanton hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning, Yelich tripled and scored on a throwing error, and Derek Dietrich hit a solo home run off of Carter Capps, who had relieved Richard after the Yelich little league home run.

Dan Straily (8-8, 3.80) allowed two runs in six innings on six hits and three walks while striking out fives. Richard hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning. Yes, that Richard.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening at the Tilted Kilt Downtown for the Fox Sports San Diego viewing party, sponsored in part by Montalvo Tequila, who kept handing out free shots of their product. Here’s what you might have missed while I was — I mean — you were drinking.

The Padres (50-53) scored more runs than the Miami Marlins (42-61), 8-3 in 11 innings, in the first of three games at Marlins Park.

Ian Kennedy (6-9, 4.44) pitched seven innings and allowed just two runs on four hits and two walk with five strikeouts, but did not get the win. Craig Kimbrel blew the save with two outs in the ninth inning by giving up a solo home run to Derek Dietrich to tie the game up at 3. Kennedy’s two runs came on a two-run home run by Christian Yelich in the first inning. Kennedy was originally scratched to allow him to fly back to San Diego to witness the birth of his new daughter, but weather forced him to cancel those plans and he came back to start the game.

David Phelps (4-7, 3.93) also came away with a no-decision, pitching five innings and allowing three runs on seven hits and one walk with two strikeouts. Kennedy scored on a Yangervis Solarte single in the third inning for the Padres’ first run. In the fourth inning, a Jedd Gyorko single scored Yonder Alonso and a sacrifice fly from Alexi Amarista allowed Derek Norris to score.

Flash forward to the eleventh inning, when back-to-back bases-loaded walks to Alonso and Norris scored two runs. A single from Gyorko scored Justin Upton and Alonso. Will Venable then singled to bring Norris across the plate again.

Tonight has Odrisamer Despaigne (4-7, 4.76) scheduled to start against Jose Urena (1-4, 4.04) at 4:10pm PDT in the second game at Marlins Park.
