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

The Padres (6-4) once again scored more runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (4-5) last night at Petco Park, winning 3-2. Justin Upton extended his hitting streak to start the season to 10 games with a single in the second inning and then scored the Friars’ first run on a double by Yonder Alonso. He then hit another monster shot to left field in the eighth inning to break a 2-2 tie. Craig Kimbrel then came in to close out the game in the ninth inning for his third save.

Brandon Morrow (0-0, 1.20) had some trouble early, giving up a two-run home run in the first inning to Paul Goldschmidt. But he settled down and pitched well through the seventh, retiring 10 in a row before Aaron Hill singled. Morrow relieved by Joaquin Benoit in the eighth and Benoit was the pitcher of record when Upton hit his bomb.

Chase Anderson (0-0, 4.09) pitched six innings for the D-Backs. Newly called-up Yasmany Tomas made his Major League debut, pinch-hitting for Anderson in the seventh and grounding out in his only appearance of the game.

The Padres are off today, travelling to Chicago to face the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Friday at 11:20am PDT. James Shields (1-0, 2.08) will take the mound against the Cubs and Jason Hammel (1-0, 4.50).

“You’re going to see things like this. No doubt they’ve made a statement so far early this year, and my guess is it’s going to continue. These guys are into it. New team, new teammates, a new organization. They’re embracing this.”
