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 (48-58) scored more runs than the Minnesota Twins (50-54) last night, 3-0, in the first of two games at Petco Park.

Jhoulys Chacin (11-7, 3.99) shutout the Twins over seven innings, allowing three hits and two walks while striking out three.

Jose Berrios (9-5, 3.57) gave up one run in seven innings — not allowing a hit for the first five innings — on two hits and two walks with four strikeouts. In the sixth inning, Hunter Renfroe led off with an infield single, took third base on Austin Hedges double, and scored on Manuel Margot‘s sacrifice fly (which became a double play after Hedges was tagged out trying to get to third base). Hedges hit a two-run home run in the eight inning.

This afternoon’s series finale pits Luis Perdomo (5-5, 4.76) against Ervin Santana (11-7, 3.37) beginning at 12:40pm PDT.
