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 (6-10) scored fewer runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (8-8), 11-1, at Petco Park last night.

James Shields (0-3, 4.15) gave up three runs in six innings on five hits and two walks with five strikeouts. The real problem happened in the seventh inning, when Leonel Campos took over for Shields. Campos gave up seven runs (five earned) on four hits and a walk with only one strikeout, which was the only out Campos got. Brad Hand relieved Campos and the Pirates scored another run off him before the inning finally ended. Hand pitched the eighth inning as well. Brandon Maurer was the lucky one, pitching the ninth inning in mop-up duty.

Gerrit Cole (1-2, 2.70) also pitched two innings, but with only four hits and no walks against seven strikeouts, the Padres were unable to score. Their one run came in the eighth inning on a Jon Jay single to score Adam Rosales, who reached base after getting hit with a pitch and advanced on Jabari Blash‘s groundout.

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 (5-9) scored more runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (7-7), 5-4, in the first of three games at Petco Park last night.

Colin Rea (1-1, 5.51) did not have his best stuff, giving up three runs on seven hits and a walk with six strikeouts in five innings of work. David Freese put the first run on the board in the first inning, hitting a single to knock in Andrew McCutchen. In the third inning, McCutchen scored again on a balk called on Rea that was then reversed after an umpire conference, then reversed again after Pirates’ manager Clint Hurdle came out to argue. Then Padres’ manager Andy Green came out of the dugout to argue about the reversal of the reversal, and Green was ejected. In the fourth inning, Francisco Liriano singled to score Jordy Mercer. Josh Harrison scored the Pirates’ final run in the eighth inning when John Jaso reached on a error by Adam Rosales, his second error of the game at third base.

Oh, and Cory Spangenberg strained his quadriceps after sliding headfirst into first base. So that happened too.

Liriano (1-1, 4.11) had an even worse night, lasting just four and a third innings while surrendering four runs on six hits and five walk with four strikeouts. Wil Myers hit a two-run home run with two outs in the fourth inning off Liriano. Derek Norris hit another two-run home run with one out in the fifth inning. Then Rosales followed Norris with a monstrous solo home run into the third deck of the Western Metal building off reliever Arquimedes Caminero.

Tonight at 7:10pm PDT, Drew Pomeranz (1-1, 3.27) takes the mound versus Jeff Locke (0-1, 2.53) in the second game.
