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

The Padres (30-30) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (28-30), 6-5, yesterday in the second game of their four game series at Turner Field

James Shields (7-0, 3.79) came away with a no-decision again, as the Braves came back from a 5-0 deficit to tie the game in the sixth inning. Nick Markakis started the Braves’ scoring, reaching on an error to plate Jace Peterson. Juan Uribe walked and Andrelton Simmons then hit a bases-loaded double to clear the bases. Jonny Gomes then had an RBI-single to score Simmons. Shields allowed five runs (four earned) in five and one-third innings on seven hits and a walk with six strikeouts.
