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 (57-70) scored more runs than the St Louis Cardinals (64-63) in their three-game series finale at Busch Stadium last night, 4-3.

Luis Perdomo (6-8, 4.84) allowed two runs on seven hits and two walks with two strikeouts over six innings. Jedd Gyorko doubled in the fourth inning to drive in Dexter Fowler. Paul DeJong scored on a single by Yadier Molina in the sixth inning. Randal Grichuk hit a solo home run off Brad Hand to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning.

Carlos Martinez (10-9, 3.48) gave up two runs (one earned) in seven innings on seven hits and two walks with six strikeouts. Manuel Margot scored when Cory Spangenberg reached on an error and Matt Szczur singled to drive in Carlos Asuaje in the sixth inning. Asuaje drove in Jabari Blash with a single in the top of the ninth inning and Margot scored on Jose Pirela‘s sacrifice fly.

The Padres take on the Miami Marlins (63-63) for three games at Marlins Park beginning tonight at 4:10pm PDT. Travis Wood (3-4, 5.81) starts tonight’s game against Adam Conley (6-5, 4.93).
