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 (31-43) scored more runs than the Cincinnati Reds (28-44) last night at Great American Ballpark, 7-4, in the first of four games.

Christian Friedrich (4-2, 3.60) gave up all four runs in five innings on six hits and four walks with two strikeouts. All four runs came in the third inning. Billy Hamilton hit an RBI double to drive in Zack Cozart, then took third base on a throwing error by Yangervis Solarte. Hamilton scored on Brandon Phillips‘ single. And Adam Duvall then hit a two-run home run.

John Lamb (1-4, 4.78) did not get a decision after pitching five and a third innings, surrendering four runs (three earned) on four hits and three walk while striking out four. Melvin Upton Jr. led off the second inning with a single, then stole second base, and ended up at third base on a throwing error by Ramon Cabrera. After Derek Norris popped out, Alexei Ramirez hit into a groundout that allowed Upton Jr. to score. Matt Kemp led off the fourth inning with a solo home run. In the sixth inning, Wil Myers came home on a Solarte single, then Norris hit a three-run home run. Travis Jankowski single in the ninth inning score Adam Rosales, who had reached on a double.

Tonight at 4:10pm PDT, Colin Rea (3-3, 5.02) gets the start versus Cody Reed (0-0, 5.14) in the second game of the series.
