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

The Padres (29-44) scored more runs than the Chicago Cubs (36-35) yesterday, 3-2, at Wrigley Field.

Miguel Diaz (1-1, 6.82) didn’t allow a run before being pulled because of a forearm strain after two and a third innings. Craig Stammen gave up two runs on an Ian Happ 2-run home run in the fourth inning. Phil Maton recorded his first Major League win after a perfect seventh inning.

Eddie Butler (3-2, 4.19) pitched four innings, allowing one run on five hits and three walks while striking out four. Jose Pirela‘s RBI single in the fifth inning drove in Stammen. Erick Aybar hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. In the eighth inning, Luis Torrens drew a bases-loaded walk to score Wil Myers with the go-ahead run.

The Padres travel back to San Diego today and start three games against the Detroit Tigers (32-38) tomorrow at 7:10pm PDT. Dinelson Lamet (2-2, 7.50) starts Friday night against Michael Fulmer (6-5, 3.45).
