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 (62-64) scored more runs than the Washington Nationals (63-62) last night, 6-5, at Nationals Park.

Tyson Ross (9-9, 3.42) gave up four runs in six innings on six hit and two walks with nine strikeouts. In the fourth inning, Bryce Harper drew a walk, advance to second base on a groundout, stole third base, and scored when Ryan Zimmerman ground out. Zimmerman’s sacrifice fly in the sixth inning scored Anthony Rendon. In the seventh inning, Ross hit pinch-hitter Clint Robinson with a pitch then gave up a double to Denard Span. Shawn Kelley came in to pitch and walked Jayson Werth to load the bases and then walked Rendon to score Robinson. Marc Rzepczynski was then brought in to pitch to Harper, who singled to score Span and Werth. Yunel Escobar then ground into a double play to end the Nationals’ threat.

Gio Gonzalez (9-7, 4.11) lasted just four and two-thirds innings, surrendering five runs (four earned) on seven hits, two walks, and six strikeouts. Matt Kemp and Justin Upton combined to drive in four runs in the third inning; two on Kemp’s double and the other two from Upton’s home run. In the fourth inning, Austin Hedges crossed the plate on a Yangervis Solarte sacrifice fly. Upton hit a solo home run off Doug Fister in the seventh inning.

Tonight, Andrew Cashner (5-12, 4.03) gets the start in the series finale against former Padres’ prospect Joe Ross (4-5, 3.56) at 4:05pm PDT.
