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

The Padres (41-53) scored fewer runs than the St Louis Cardinals (49-44), 4-2, in the second game of four at Busch Stadium. This game was the first of a day/night doubleheader necessitated by Tuesday night’s rainout.

Colin Rea (5-4, 5.01) gave up four runs in six innings on eight hits and three walks while striking out two. In the second inning, Matt Holliday hit a leadoff solo home run. Jedd Gyorko hit a two-run home run with Matt Adams on base in the fourth inning. And Yadier Molina hit a solo home run to lead off the sixth inning.

Carlos Martinez (9-6, 2.85) pitched seven inning, surrendering two runs on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts. The Padres’ two runs came in the first inning on Ryan Schimpf‘s two-run home run. Travis Jankowski led off the game with a double.

This evening at 5:15pm PDT, Paul Clemens makes his Padres debut against Jaime Garcia (6-6, 4.11) at Busch Stadium.
