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 (52-66) scored more runs than the Philadelphia Phillies (43-73) last night, 7-4, in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Travis Wood (2-4, 6.46) allowed two runs on six hits and two walks in five innings with three strikeouts. Odubel Herrera singled to drive in Cesar Hernandez but the third inning was ended by a great throw and tag, relay, and throw by Manuel Margot, Carlos Asuaje, and Austin Hedges to get Freddy Galvis at home. Rhys Hoskins hit a solo home run — his first as a Major Leaguer — in the fourth inning. Hernandez reached on a fielding error and Tommy Joseph came home in the sixth inning. Hoskins hit his second home run in the seventh inning.

Jerad Eickhoff (3-7, 4.33) gave up two runs (one earned) in five innings on five hits and three walks while striking out five. An Hedges sacrifice fly in the second inning drove in Wil Myers. Cory Spangenberg scored when Margot reached base on a throwing error in the fourth inning. In the sixth inning, Spangenberg scored on a Hedges single, Hedges took second base on the throw, Matt Szczur scored on Asuaje’s sacrifice fly, and Jose Pirela singled to drive in Hedges and Margot. Spangenberg led off the seventh inning with solo home run.

Dinelson Lamet (6-4, 5.00) gets the start in tonight’s second game of the series against Mark Leiter (1-2, 4.08) with first pitch set for 7:10pm PDT.
