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

The Padres (43-56) scored more runs than the Washington Nationals (58-41), 10-6 yesterday, to take two out of three games at Nationals Park.

Christian Friedrich (4-6, 5.00) lasted just three innings, giving up five runs on six hits and a walk while striking out none. Carlos Villanueva pitched the next three innings in relief, giving up one run on two hits and no walks with four strikeouts. Daniel Murphy‘s sacrifice fly in the first inning brought Trea Turner in to put the Nationals on the board. In the third inning, a sacrifice fly by Jayson Werth scored Lucas Giolito, Turner scored again on a single by Murphy, and Wilson Ramos hit a two-run home run. Ramos hit a single in the fifth inning to drive in Murphy again, but Ramos was thrown out trying to take second base.

Giolito (0-0, 4.91) didn’t fare much better than Friedrich, surrendering four runs (two earned) in three and a third innings on four hits and three walks, also with no strikeouts. Wil Myers‘ two-RBI single scored Derek Norris and Travis Jankowski in the third inning, but Myers was thrown out trying to take second base. Ryan Schimpf‘s RBI single in the fourth inning scored Alex Dickerson. Dickerson and Schimpf then hit back-to-back solo home runs to begin the eighth inning. Yangervis Solarte drove in Myers with a single and Alexei Ramirez hit a bases-loaded double to drive in Solarte, Dickerson, and Schimpf in the ninth inning.

The Padres travel to Toronto for the first time ever to take on the Blue Jays (55-44) for three games at Rogers Centre. Colin Rea (5-4, 5.01) starts tonight at 4:07pm PDT against Aaron Sanchez (10-1, 2.87).
