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 (50-65) scored more runs than the New York Mets (57-58), 8-6, in the first game of a three-game series at Citi Field.

Paul Clemens (2-2, 4.73) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three in five innings. Travis d’Arnaud hit a two-run home run in the second inning. In the fifth inning, Curtis Granderson scored on a Jay Bruce single. The Mets’ other three runs were charged to Buddy Baumann, who started the sixth inning in relief but did not record an out. d’Arnaud scored on a Matt Reynolds double, Ty Kelly‘s single drove in Alejandro De Aza, and Reynolds scored on a ground out by Wilmer Flores after Brad Hand relieved Baumann.

Logan Verrett (3-8, 5.36) last just two and two-thirds innings, giving up eight runs on six hits and three walk with four strikeouts. After Verrett loaded the bases with just one out in the first inning, Ryan Schimpf hit his first career grand slam and Jabari Blash followed that up with a solo home run. Schimpf hit a two-run home run in the third inning and Christian Bethancourt hit a solo home run one out later.

Tonight’s second game has Jarred Cosart (0-1, 5.79) taking the mound against Jacob deGrom (7-5, 2.35). First pitch is at 4:10pm PDT.
