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 (48-60) scored fewer runs than the Pittsburgh Pirates (53-56) last night, 10-6, in the first of three games at PNC Park. The start of the game was delayed for two hours and five minutes because of weather.

Travis Wood (1-3, 6.49) allowed four runs on six hits and two walks over five innings with five strikeouts. Ivan Nova hit a sacrifice bunt that Austin Hedges threw away to allow Francisco Cervelli to score and Josh Harrison singled to drive in Jordy Mercer in the fifth inning. David Freese led off the sixth inning with a home run and Jose Osuna scored on an Adam Frazier single. In the seventh inning, a three-run home run by Gregory Polanco, a Frazier sacrifice fly, and a two-run single by Harrison put the final nails in the Padres coffin.

Nova (10-8, 3.75) gave up four runs (one earned) in six innings on four hits and two walks while striking out five. In the fifth inning, Wood reached on an error that allowed Hedges to score and Carlos Asuaje hit a two-run home run (that actually hit a fan at the fence in the crotch). Yangervis Solarte hit a leadoff home run in the sixth inning. Manuel Margot hit a solo home run and Cory Spangenberg drew a bases loaded walk to score Asuaje in the seventh inning.

Dinelson Lamet (5-4, 5.62) starts tonight against Gerrit Cole (9-7, 3.97) beginning at 4:05pm PDT.
