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 (54-67) scored fewer runs than the Washington Nationals (72-47) last night, 2-1, in the first of four games at Petco Park.

Jhoulys Chacin (11-8, 3.98) allowed one run on three hits and four walks while striking out six in five innings. Adam Lind‘s sacrifice fly scored Howie Kendrick in the third inning. Ryan Zimmerman hit a solo home run off Kirby Yates in the eighth inning.

Edwin Jackson (4-2, 3.43) gave up one run in seven innings on eight hits and a walk with four strikeouts. Jose Pirela singled to drive in Manuel Margot in the third inning.

Luis Perdomo (6-7, 4.95) starts tonight against Max Scherzer (12-5, 2.25) with first pitch scheduled for 7:10pm PDT.
