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 (53-72) scored fewer runs than the Chicago Cubs (79-45) last night, 5-1, in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Edwin Jackson (3-4, 5.71) gave up five runs on seven hits — including three home runs — and four walks with two strikeouts in five innings. Addison Russell hit a solo home run in the second inning. Dexter Fowler scored in the third inning on a Russell sacrifice fly. Kris Bryant led off the fifth inning with a solo home run and Jason Heyward hit a two-run home run with Anthony Rizzo on base.

Jon Lester (14-4, 2.81) pitched six innings, allowing one run on five hits and two walks while striking out eight. In the seventh inning, Ryan Schimpf struck out on a Justin Grimm wild pitch and made it to first base, allowing Alex Dickerson to score the Padres’ only run.

Tonight, Christian Friedrich (4-9, 4.69) takes the mound against Jake Arrieta (15-5, 2.75) starting at 7:10pm PDT.
