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

The Padres (47-58) scored fewer runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (51-54), 7-1, yesterday in the finale of three games at Petco Park.

Clayton Richard (5-12, 5.40) gave up four runs in six innings on seven hits and two walks with five strikeouts. Andrew McCutchen hit the first of his three solo home runs in the first inning. In the sixth inning, Jose Osuna tripled to drive in McCutchen and David Freese. McCutchen’s second home run came in the eighth inning off Jose Torres. In the ninth inning, Josh Bell led off with a home run and McCutchen added his third.

Gerrit Cole (9-7, 3.97) allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out eight in seven innings. Dusty Coleman hit a solo home run in the seventh inning.

The Padres are off today with the Minnesota Twins (50-53) heading to Petco Park for two games beginning tomorrow at 7:10pm PDT. Jhoulys Chacin (10-7, 4.22) gets the start tomorrow versus Jose Berrios (9-4, 3.76).
