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

The Padres (5-8) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (5-6), 9-2, yesterday at SunTrust Park.

Trevor Cahill (0-2, 4.76) pitched five and two-thirds innings, giving up four runs on four hits and three walk while striking out eight. Adonis Garcia scored on Tyler Flowers‘ single in the fifth inning. In the sixth inning, a single by Brandon Phillips drove in Ender Inciarte and Freddie Freeman. After Miguel Diaz balked in a run in the seventh inning, Inciarte hit a solo home run. In the eight inning, Freeman scored on a Nick Markakis double, Markakis scored on a Phillips single, and Phillips scored on Johan Carmago’s single.
