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 (39-48) scored fewer runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (50-34) at PNC Park last night, 5-2.

Andrew Cashner (3-10, 4.10) was tagged with his tenth loss of the season after surrendering four runs on three hits and two walks with five strikeouts over seven and two-thirds innings. Cashner had allowed only one hit until the Pirates came back from a 2-1 deficit with a run in the seventh inning and a three-run eighth inning, with RBI singles from Gregory Polanco, Andrew McCutchen, and Jung Ho Kang.

Charlie Morton (6-2, 4.15) pitched six innings, allowing two runs on five hits and four walks with five strikeouts. Matt Kemp had a first inning solo home run and Melvin Upton Jr. hit a RBI double in the second inning to score Will Venable.

The Padres travel to the Dallas/Ft Worth area for a three game series against the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington, TX starting tomorrow at 5:05pm PDT. Ian Kennedy (4-8, 4.84) gets the start in the first game against Wandy Rodriguez (5-4, 4.23).
