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 (60-84) scored more runs than the San Francisco Giants (77-66), 4-0, last night in the first of three games at AT&T Park.

Paul Clemens (3-5, 4.94) pitched five innings — all while suffering effects of the flu — shutting the Giants out on three hits and a walk while striking out two. With two outs in the second inning when Brandon Belt walked and Joe Panik was hit by a pitch, but Conor Gillaspie ground out to end the inning. With one out in the fourth inning, Brandon Crawford and Hunter Pence hit back-to-back singles, Belt flied out, and the runners advanced on a wild pitch to Panik who then ground out.

Jeff Samardzija (11-10, 4.07) surrendered four runs on eight hits and a walk in six inning with six strikeouts. Luis Sardinas scored on a Yangervis Solarte single in the fourth inning. Solarte grounded into a fielder’s choice in the fifth inning and Clemens scored when Solarte beat the throw to first base. Hector Sanchez hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning.

Clayton Richard (2-3, 2.78) gets the start tonight against Albert Suarez (3-3, 4.37). First pitch is set for 7:15pm PDT.
