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 (42-55) scored more runs than the Washington Nationals (57-40) last night at Nationals Park, 5-3 in the first of three games.

Luis Perdomo (4-4, 6.93) pitched his longest outing of the season, seven innings, surrendering two runs on four hits and a walk with three strikeouts. Jayson Werth hit a solo home run and Wilson Ramos singled in Bryce Harper in the first inning. Daniel Murphy hit a solo home run in the eighth inning.

Tanner Roark (9-6, 3.05) gave up five runs on four hits and two walks while striking out four. Matt Kemp hit a solo home run with two outs in the first inning. Melvin Upton Jr. singled in Brett Wallace and later scored with Ryan Schimpf on Kemp’s three-run home run in the fifth inning.

Tonight’s second game features Edwin Jackson (1-1, 4.76) going up against Max Scherzer (10-6, 2.94) starting at 4:05pm PDT.
