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 (49-64) scored more runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (56-55) in the second game of three at PNC Park, 4-0.

Edwin Jackson (3-2, 4.19) did not allow a hit for the first five innings, until Jordy Mercer singled to lead off the sixth inning. Andrew McCutchen had the other Pirates’ hit leading off the seventh inning. Jackson finished with seven shutout innings on two hits and three walks while striking out seven. Ryan Buchter and Brandon Maurer each threw a perfect inning of relief, with one strikeout apiece.

Ryan Vogelsong (1-2, 2.67) allowed two runs on three hits and a walk with five strikeouts in six innings. Christian Bethancourt singled in the second inning and Jabari Blash scored on a throwing error by Vogelsong. Jackson then reached on a fielding error by Jung Ho Kang, allowing Bethancourt to cross the plate. In the seventh inning, Alexei Ramirez hit a single to drive in Ryan Schimpf, who made a perfect slide to get by the tag. Travis Jankowski stole home in the eighth while Alex Dickerson was at bat.

The game started strange, as Yangervis Solarte was pulled before the Padres took the field in the bottom of the first inning, apparently for not running out an infield pop fly.

This morning’s series finale has Christian Friedrich (4-7, 4.76) taking the mound against Jameson Taillon (2-2, 3.29). First pitch is scheduled for 9:35am PDT.
