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 (13-18) scored fewer runs than the New York Mets (18-11), 6-3, in game three of four at Petco Park.

James Shields (1-5, 3.60) pitched six innings, allowing four runs on five hits (Including two two-run home runs. More on those in a bit) and five walks with eight strikeouts. Yoenis Cespedes hit a two-out, two-run home run in the first inning. In the second inning, Bartolo Colon (Yes, that Bartolo Colon) hit a two-out, two-run home run, his first career home run. He’s 42 years old and the oldest player to hit the first home run of his Major League career. The Mets added two more runs with one out in the ninth inning with back-to-back solo home runs off Carlos Villanueva by David Wright and Michael Conforto.

Colon (3-1, 2.82) gave up three runs in six and two-thirds innings on six hits and a walk with five strikeouts. Jon Jay hit a three-run home run with one out in the third inning to score Derek Norris and Shields. That was it.

Oh, I nearly forgot. Jemile Weeks left the game with a right hamstring strain and had to be helped off the field. So…

Today has Andrew Cashner (2-2, 4.85) getting the start against Matt Harvey (2-4, 4.76) starting at 1:40pm PDT.
