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

The Padres (39-46) scored fewer runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (48-34) at PNC Park yesterday, 2-1. Pedro Alvarez hit a walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the ninth to give the Pirates the victory.

James Shields (7-3, 3.88) allowed on one unearned run in seven innings on two hits and a walk with three strikeouts. Alvarez reached first base on a throwing error with two outs by Yangervis Solarte that allowed Andrew McCutchen to score in the seventh inning. McCutchen had reached base with a one out double.

A.J. Burnett (7-3, 1.99) pitched seven and two-thirds innings, allowing the one run on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts. Alexi Amarista hit a one out, bases loaded sacrifice fly that drove in Yonder Alonso.

Tonight’s game pits Tyson Ross (5-7, 3.63) against Francisco Liriano (5-6, 2.99) at 4:05pm PDT.
