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

The Padres (44-59) scored fewer runs than the Cincinnati Reds (41-61), 6-0, last night in the first game of three at Petco Park.

Edwin Jackson (1-2, 5.46) gave up six runs (four in the first inning) on ten hits and two walks with three strikeouts. Alex Dickerson collided with Travis Jankowski going for a fly ball to left-center field with one out in the first. Dickerson had to leave the game with a right hip contusion. The Padres hit into four double plays in the game. They loaded the bases with two outs in the first inning, but Derek Norris lined out to end the threat. In the ninth inning, Wil Myers and Ryan Schimpf were on base with two outs, but Norris struck out to end the game.

Brandon Finnegan (6-8, 4.68) pitched six shutout innings (obviously) while giving up four hits and three walks with five strikeouts. Jay Bruce put the first run on the board in the first inning, hitting a sacrifice fly to score Zack Cozart. Brandon Phillips knocked in Joey Votto with an RBI single. And Eugenio Suarez‘ two-RBI double scored Adam Duvall and Phillips. Suarez singled in the fifth to bring Bruce and Phillips home.

Tonight, Christian Friedrich (4-6, 5.00) gets the start in the series’ second game against Anthony DeSclafani (6-0, 3.09). First pitch is scheduled for 5:40pm PDT.
