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.
