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 (56-78) scored more runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (74-60), 4-2, last night in the first of three games at Dodger Stadium.

Clayton Richard (1-3, 3.29) gave up one run on nine hits and a walk with four strikeouts in five innings. Joc Pederson‘s single in the fourth inning drove in Enrique Hernandez. Pederson then tied the game in the sixth inning with a solo home run off Brandon Morrow. Brad Hand, Ryan Buchter, and Brandon Maurer combined to shutout the Dodgers over the last three and two-thirds innings.

Julio Urias (5-2, 3.69) pitched five and a third innings, surrendering two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out six. Derek Norris‘ double drove in Yangervis Solarte and Alex Dickerson in the sixth inning. In the eighth inning, Solarte hit a leadoff solo home run and Brett Wallace‘s pinch-hit RBI single drove Dickerson in.

Tonight at 6:10pm PDT, Luis Perdomo (7-7, 5.84) gets the start against Rich Hill (10-3, 2.09) in the second game.
