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 (30-43) scored fewer runs than the Baltimore Orioles (41-30) last night, 7-2, splitting their two game series in Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Erik Johnson (0-5, 8.54) gave up six runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out three over four innings. Mark Trumbo led off the second inning with a solo home run. In the third inning, a Jonathan Schoop RBI double scored Adam Jones. A Matt Wieters RBI single in the fourth inning brought Trumbo in for another run. Johnson gave up a leadoff home run to Ryan Flaherty and loaded the bases with no outs in the fifth before being pulled for Carlos Villanueva. Villanueva hit Chris Davis with a pitch to bring Jones across the plate and Wieters’ sacrifice fly drove in Schoop. Hyun Soo Kim singled in the sixth inning to drive in Flaherty.

Ubaldo Jimenez (4-7, 6.97) pitched six innings, allowing two runs on four hits and four walks with seven strikeouts. RBI singles by Matt Kemp to drive in Travis Jankowski in the first and fifth innings accounted for both Padres’ runs.

The Padres tonight face the Cincinnati Reds (28-43) at 4:10pm PDT at Great American Ballpark. Christian Friedrich (3-2, 3.15) faces off against John Lamb (1-4, 4.75) in the first of four games.
