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 (27-41) scored fewer runs than the Washington Nationals (42-25), 8-5 last night, in the first of four games at Petco Park.

Erik Johnson (0-4, 7.66) gave up five runs in six innings on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts. The Nationals got on the board on a sacrifice fly by Stephen Drew to score Wilson Ramos. Back-to-back home runs by Bryce Harper and Ramos in the third inning added three more runs. In the sixth inning, Anthony Rendon added solo home run. Clint Robinson‘s sacrifice fly in the seventh inning added to the Nationals’ lead. And a throwing error by Christian Bethancourt allowed Ben Revere to score in the ninth inning.

Tanner Roark (6-4, 3.14) pitched six innings, surrendering four runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out five. In the first inning, Matt Kemp opened up the scoring with an RBI single to bring Travis Jankowski across the plate. One out later, Wil Myers scored on an RBI single by Melvin Upton Jr. Myers hit a solo home run with one out in the fifth inning. A Bethancourt RBI groundout in the sixth inning scored Upton Jr. And a Kemp sacrifice fly in the ninth scored Jankowski for the final run.

Tonight’s matchup pits Christian Friedrich (3-1, 2.12) against former Padres’ prospect Joe Ross (5-4, 3.01). First pitch is scheduled for 7:40pm PDT.
