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 (53-73) scored fewer runs than the Chicago Cubs (80-45) last night last night at Petco Park, 5-3.

Christian Friedrich (4-10, 4.89) allowed five runs on seven hits and four walks in five and a third innings while striking out two. Kris Bryant hit a solo home run in the third inning. In the fifth inning, a Ben Zobrist double scored Bryant and Addison Russell followed Zobrist with a two-run home run. A sacrifice fly by Bryant scored Jake Arrieta in the sixth inning.

Arrieta (16-5, 2.62) gave up just two hits and three walks in eight innings, striking out six and facing just one batter over the minimum. The Cubs turned three double plays behind Arrieta. In the ninth inning, Luis Sardinas scored on a single by Wil Myers after a replay challenge showed Sardinas was safe. After Felix Pena was relieved by Aroldis Chapman, Myers advanced to second on defensive indifference and Yangervis Solarte‘s sacrifice fly scored Adam Rosales. Myers advanced to second on defensive indifference. Alex Dickerson drew a walk and Myers then scored on a wild pitch to Ryan Schimpf.

Today’s series finale pits Paul Clemens (2-2, 4.82) against Kyle Hendricks (11-7, 2.16) starting at 12:40pm PDT.
