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 (33-37) scored fewer runs than the Arizona Diamondbacks (33-33), 4-2 last night in the first of three games at Chase Field.

James Shields (7-1, 3.75) was saddled with his first loss of the season, giving up all four Arizona runs on eight hits and four walk with five strikeouts in six innings pitched. In the first inning, Paul Goldschmidt drove in A.J. Pollock on a groundout for the Diamondbacks’ first run. The third inning was the kicker, as Aaron Hill and Welington Castillo both hit RBI doubles and Nick Ahmed hit an RBI single, all with two outs.

Rubby De La Rosa (6-3, 4.96) gave up two runs (one earned) in seven innings on five hits and three walks with six strikeouts. Matt Kemp contributed three of those in his first three at-bats, before getting on base on an error in his fourth plate appearance in the eighth inning. Justin Upton walked with the bases loaded in the fifth inning, scoring Shields for the Friars’ first run. Upton scored the second run on a sacrifice fly from Cory Spangenberg in the eighth inning.

Tonight will see Tyson Ross (3-7, 3.90) take the hill against Robbie Ray (2-1, 1.09) in the second game of the series at 7:10pm PDT.
