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 (56-69) scored more runs than the St Louis Cardinals (63-62) last night, 12-4, in the first of three games at Busch Stadium.

Clayton Richard (6-12, 4.89) gave up four runs over five and two-thirds innings on six hits and a walk while striking out six. Back-to-back home runs in the fourth inning by Jedd Gyorko (two-runs) and Stephen Piscotty (solo) put the Cardinals on the scoreboard. Yadier Molina hit a solo home run in the sixth inning.

Lance Lynn (10-6, 3.17) allowed four runs on six hits and a walk with four strikeouts in six innings. In the third inning, a bases-loaded double by Yangervis Solarte scored Richard, Manuel Margot, and Jose Pirela. Solarte doubled again in the fifth inning, driving in Margot. In the seventh inning, Margot scored on a Pirela single, Matt Szczur‘s single drove in Carlos Asuaje and Pirela, and Austin Hedges hit a three-run home run. Solarte hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning.

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

The Padres (39-45) scored fewer runs than the St Louis Cardinals (53-28) yesterday, 3-1, to split the four game series at Busch Stadium.

Ian Kennedy (4-8, 4.84) gave up all three Cardinals’ runs in six innings on seven hits and no walks with four strikeouts. Tommy Pham went 2-for-4 with a 2-run home run in the third inning and an RBI double in the fifth inning — both with starting pitcher Lance Lynn on base — to account for all three runs.

Lynn (6-4, 2.53) surrendered the Padres’ only run on a Matt Kemp RBI single in the third inning to score Yangervis Solarte. However, Lynn shutout the Padres through the rest of his seven innings pitched, with three hits, three walks, and eight strikeouts.

James Shields (7-3, 4.14) gets the start versus A.J. Burnett (7-3, 2.05) tonight at 4:05pm PDT as the Padres start a three game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates (47-34) at PNC Park.

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending your evening at the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (57-63) lost the second game of their four-game series to the St Louis Cardinals (64-56), 4-2, last night at Busch Stadium.  Padres starter Tyson Ross (11-11, 2.70) was shaky in the first inning for the second start in a row, giving up two runs, before settling down once again.  But the Padres’ batters were unable to figure out how to get to Lance Lynn (13-8, 2.91).

The Padres only runs came on a Will Venable RBI double in the fifth inning to score Jace Peterson and a Yasmani Grandal home run to straightaway center field in the ninth inning.  Chris Nelson then doubled and Venable came up representing the tying run, but struck out on a pitch well outside to end the game.

This evening at 4:15 pm PDT Jesse Hahn (7-3, 2.52) takes the hill against Shelby Miller (8-9, 4.17) in the third game in St Louis.  The game is being broadcast nationally on Fox Sports One, so don’t flip by Fox Sports San Diego looking for the game.  If your TV package doesn’t include Fox Sports One (like mine), you’ll be listening to the game on Mighty 1090 (like me).
