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 (72-82) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (74-80), 6-3, last night in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Casey Kelly (0-1, 9.00) made his first start in a Padres’ uniform since 2012, and it didn’t start out quite according to plan. The Diamondbacks scored all six run in the first two innings, including four in the second inning on a grand slam home run from A.J. Pollock. However, after giving up that grand slam, Kelly retired the next eleven batters, leaving after five innings with six runs allowed on six hits, one walk, and one strikeout.

Rubby De La Rosa (14-8, 4.56) gave up three runs (two earned) on four hits and three walks with two strikeouts in five and two-thirds innings. Matt Kemp scored in the fourth inning on a ground out by Jedd Gyorko. In the fifth inning, Travis Jankowski doubled and scored on a single by Wil Myers. And Alexi Amarista singled in the sixth inning to score Gyorko.

Tonight at 5:40pm PDT, Robbie Erlin (0-1, 21.00) takes the mound against Jeremy Hellickson (9-10, 4.73).
