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

The Padres (7-13) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (10-11), 5-4, in the first of three games at AT&T Park.

Drew Pomeranz (2-2, 2.86) pitched just four and a third innings, surrendering four runs (three earned) on seven hit and three walks with six strikeouts. Solo home runs by Hunter Pence in the fourth inning off Pomeranz and Buster Posey in seventh inning off Carlos Villanueva cemented the win for the Giants.

Madison Bumgarner (2-2, 3.64) gave up two runs on six hits and two walks with nine strikeouts in six and two-thirds innings. Jon Jay‘s RBI single in the third put the Friars on the board. And Derek Norris hit an RBI double off Bumgarner in the sixth inning. The Padres started to rally against the Giants’ bullpen, scoring two runs off Hunter Strickland in the eighth inning on an RBI single by Alexei Ramirez and another RBI single by Brett Wallace. But it wasn’t enough.
