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 (27-42) scored fewer runs than the Washington Nationals (43-25) in last night’s second game of four, 7-5, at Petco Park.

Christian Friedrich (3-2, 3.15) gave up six runs on nine hits and two walks in six innings while striking out three. A sacrifice fly by Anthony Rendon in the second inning scored Ryan Zimmerman. In the third inning, Jayson Werth and Bryce Harper scored on Daniel Murphy‘s double. And Zimmerman hit a two-run home run with Murphy on base. Murphy led off the sixth inning with a solo home run. And a seventh inning RBI single by Harper scored Michael Taylor.

Joe Ross (6-4, 3.13) pitched six innings, surrendering three runs on six hits and two walks with six strikeouts. Matt Kemp‘s RBI single scored Jon Jay to put the Padres on the board in the first inning. Jay hit an RBI single in the fifth inning to bring Alexei Ramirez across the plate. Derek Norris hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. In the seventh inning, a Wil Myers groundout scored Christian Bethancourt and a Yangervis Solarte groundout scored Jay.

Colin Rea (3-3, 5.37) gets the start tonight at 7:10pm PDT against Max Scherzer (8-4, 3.40).
