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

The Padres (61-64) scored fewer runs than the Washington Nationals (63-61), 8-3, last night in the first of three games at Nationals Park.

James Shields (9-6, 3.89) threw 121 pitches in just five and two-thirds innings, giving up five runs on eight hits and four walks with two strikeouts. Wilson Ramos hit a two-run home run with two outs in the second inning. After being relieved by Marc Rzepczynski in the sixth with two outs and one base runner, Bryce Harper appeared to ground to first base to end the inning. The umpire called it foul however after Harper feigned like the ball hit his foot. Harper drew a walk. Rzepczynski was taken out in favor of Bud Norris, who then walked Yunel Escobar. Ryan Zimmerman then came up and hit a Grand Slam. Pat Murphy stewed over the Harper call for about a half-inning before he was tossed in the top of the seventh inning.

Stephen Strasburg (8-6, 4.14) pitched six innings, surrendering two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out seven batters. Jedd Gyorko was the Padres’ entire offense, hitting a two-run home run off Strasburg with no outs in the second inning and a solo shot with two outs in the seventh inning.

Tonight at 4:05pm PDT, Tyson Ross (8-9, 3.92) takes the mound versus Gio Gonzalez (9-6, 3.98).
