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

The Padres (57-73) scored fewer runs than the Miami Marlins (66-63), 6-2, at Marlins Park yesterday.

Clayton Richard (6-13, 4.96) gave up five runs on eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in seven-plus innings. In the third inning, Dee Gordon scored on Giancarlo Stanton‘s double and Stanton went to third base on the throw home then scored on a wild pitch to Christian Yelich. Stanton hit a two-run home run in the eighth inning, Yelich tripled and scored on a throwing error, and Derek Dietrich hit a solo home run off of Carter Capps, who had relieved Richard after the Yelich little league home run.

Dan Straily (8-8, 3.80) allowed two runs in six innings on six hits and three walks while striking out fives. Richard hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning. Yes, that Richard.
