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 (49-62) scored fewer runs than the Cincinnati Reds (46-66), 11-3, in the first game of a four-game series at Great American Ballpark last night.

Jhoulys Chacin (11-8, 4.15) gave up five runs on five hits and three walks with five strikeouts in six innings. Billy Hamilton led off the game with a triple and scored on Joey Votto‘s single in the first inning. Votto hit a two-run home run in the third inning. In the sixth inning Adam Duvall hit a two-run home run. Zack Cozart added another two-run home run in the seventh inning. In the eighth inning Patrick Kivlehan hit a grand slam home run.

Tim Adleman (5-9, 5.35) allowed two runs on six hits and a walk in four and two-thirds inning with four strikeouts. Jose Pirela was the Padres offense, hitting two home runs: a two-run shot in the fourth inning and a solo in the eighth inning.

Luis Perdomo (5-6, 4.92) starts tonight’s second game against Sal Romano (2-3, 4.88) with first pitch scheduled for 4:05pm PDT.
