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 (28-42) scored more runs than the Washington Nationals (43-26), 7-3, in the third of four games at Petco Park last night.

Neither Colin Rea (3-3, 5.15) nor Max Scherzer (8-4, 3.29) figured in the decision. Rea gave up two runs on four hits and two walk with six strikeouts in six and a third innings. Daniel Murphy‘s RBI single in the first inning scored Michael Taylor. In the seventh inning, Anthony Rendon hit an RBI single to bring Wilson Ramos home. And a Ryan Zimmerman RBI single in the eighth inning scored Taylor again.

Scherzer pitched six innings while surrendering just one run on four hits and no walk with ten strikeouts. Wil Myers hit a solo home run with one out in the first inning. Felipe Rivero came into pitch the eighth inning, and proceeded to load the bases with no outs. Myers then hit a two-run double. After Matt Kemp walked to load the bases again, Brett Wallace hit a ground ball to Rivero that he threw away trying to get Jon Jay at home on a force out. After a pitching change, Myers scored on a walk to Melvin Upton Jr. Yangervis Solarte then hit a two-run single to score Kemp and Wallace. There were still no outs.

In this afternoon’s finale the Padres will send out Drew Pomeranz (5-7, 2.88) in an attempt to split the series. Gio Gonzalez (3-5, 3.96) goes for the Nationals with first pitch scheduled for 1:40pm PDT.
