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 (62-65) scored fewer runs than the Washington Nationals (64-62) in the finale of their three game series at Nationals Park.

Andrew Cashner (5-13, 4.05) threw 121 pitches in five and two-thirds innings, giving up three runs on nine hits and three walk with six strikeouts. In the fifth inning, Jayson Werth scored after Cashner loaded the bases and then hit Yunel Escobar with a pitch. Ryan Zimmerman‘s RBI single followed, scoring Anthony Rendon. Werth hit a two-out solo home run in the sixth inning. And Zimmerman hit a solo home run off Kevin Quackenbush in the seventh inning.

Joe Ross (5-5, 3.24) pitched six innings while allowing one run on one hit and two walks with seven strikeouts. A Yangervis Solarte sacrifice fly scored Cory Spangenberg in the fourth inning. Yonder Alonso added an RBI single in the ninth inning against Jonathan Papelbon.

The Friars head 134 miles Northeast to take on the Philadelphia Phillies for three games at Citizens Bank Park starting tonight at 4:05pm PDT. Ian Kennedy (8-11, 4.01) goes up against Aaron Nola (4-1, 3.59) in the first game.
