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 (62-66) scored fewer runs than the Philadelphia Phillies (51-78), 7-1, in the first of three games at Citizens Bank Park.

Ian Kennedy (8-12, 3.94) threw 118 pitches in six and two-thirds innings, allowing two runs on two hits and five walks with seven strikeouts. Bud Norris finished the seventh inning by getting Cesar Hernandez to ground out. Marc Rzepczynski started the eighth inning and gave up a single to Odubel Herrera, an RBI triple to Aaron Altherr, struck out Ryan Howard, and hit Andres Blanco with a pitch. Odrisamer Despaigne came in to pitch and pinch-hitter Jeff Francoeur hit an RBI double and Cameron Rupp hit a monstrous three-run home run.

Aaron Nola (5-1, 3.26) allowed the one Padres’ run on two hits and two walk with six strikeouts in seven innings. Justin Upton hit a solo home run with one out in the fourth inning. Jerome Williams recorded the save by pitching two scoreless innings.

Colin Rea (2-1, 5.52) gets the start tonight at 4:05pm PDT against Adam Morgan (4-4, 4.43) in the second game.
