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 (62-77) scored fewer runs than the St Louis Cardinals (71-67), 8-4, last night at Petco Park.

Harrison Bader hit a three-run home run in the second inning. In the third inning, Paul DeJong scored on a fielder’s choice hit into by Yadier Molina and a throwing error by Yangervis Solarte and Stephen Piscotty singled Martinez in. Martinez hit a solo home run in the seventh inning.
