Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (47-57) scored more runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (50-54) last night at Petco Park, 4-2.

Dinelson Lamet (5-4, 5.62) allowed two runs on two hits and two walks in six-plus innings while striking out seven. Andrew McCutchen scored on a single by David Freese and Josh Bell scored on a double-play groundout by Francisco Cervelli in the seventh inning.

Ivan Nova (10-8, 3.75) gave up four runs in five innings on eight hits and no walks with six strikeouts. In the first inning, Jose Pirela tripled to drive in Manuel Margot and then scored on Hector Sanchez‘ double. Hunter Renfroe‘s double in the fourth inning drove in Cory Spangenberg. Margot led off the fifth inning with a home run.

This afternoon’s series finale has Clayton Richard (5-11, 5.37) starting versus Gerrit Cole (8-7, 4.12) beginning at 1:40pm PDT.
