Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (30-30) scored fewer runs than the Atlanta Braves (28-30), 6-5, yesterday in the second game of their four game series at Turner Field

James Shields (7-0, 3.79) came away with a no-decision again, as the Braves came back from a 5-0 deficit to tie the game in the sixth inning. Nick Markakis started the Braves’ scoring, reaching on an error to plate Jace Peterson. Juan Uribe walked and Andrelton Simmons then hit a bases-loaded double to clear the bases. Jonny Gomes then had an RBI-single to score Simmons. Shields allowed five runs (four earned) in five and one-third innings on seven hits and a walk with six strikeouts.

The Braves took the lead on a Joey Terdoslavich pinch hit leadoff home run in the eighth inning off Joaquin Benoit. The home run was Terdoslavich’s first of his career.

Mike Foltynewicz (3-2, 4.72) didn’t fare much better than Shields, giving up five runs in five and two-third innings on twelve hits and a walk with two strikeouts. Clint Barmes hit an RBI double in the second inning to score Cory Spangenberg. Will Venable hit a solo home run in the third inning. Derek Norris scored in the fifth inning on a Yonder Alonso single. Venable and Norris had back-to-back RBI doubles in the sixth inning.

Tonight, Tyson Ross (3-5, 3.75) takes the mound for the Friars opposite the Braves’ Williams Perez (1-0, 3.55) at Turner Field at 4:10pm.
