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 (68-77) scored more runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (68-76) last night, 10-3, in the first of three from Chase Field.

James Shields (12-6, 3.80) pitched seven innings, allowing one run on four hits and two walk with six strikeouts. Shields now has 200 strikeouts for the season. In the first inning, A.J. Pollock hit a leadoff double, advanced to third on a groundball out, and scored on a Paul Goldschmidt double. Jay Jackson made his Major League debut in the ninth inning, and the Diamondbacks scored two runs off him. Jake Lamb hit a ground-rule double and scored on Phil Gosselin’s single. Gosselin took second on defensive indifference and scored on Brandon Drury‘s double.

Jeremy Hellickson (9-9, 4.78) lasted just one inning, giving up five runs (three earned) on five hits, two walks, and a strikeout. Wil Myers led off the game with a home run to right field. The Padres loaded the bases with no outs and a Jedd Gyorko sacrifice fly and Cory Spangenberg single plated two runs. A throwing error by Hellickson on an attempted pick-off move allowed Spangenberg to get to third base and Justin Upton to score. Derek Norris then singled to score Spangenberg. The Padres loaded the bases with no outs again in the fifth inning and Spangenberg doubled to score two more runs. After a Norris walk and two strikeouts, Myers hit a bases-clearing double. In the ninth inning, pinch-hitter Cody Decker popped out to first base in his first Major League at-bat.

Tyson Ross (10-10, 3.24) gets the start tonight at 6:40pm PDT against Jhoulys Chacin (0-1, 2.70) in the second game of the series.
