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 (57-71) scored fewer runs than the Miami Marlins (64-63), 8-6, in the first of three games at Marlins Park last night.

Travis Wood (3-4, 6.03) allowed five runs on nine hits and two walks with three strikeouts in five innings. Giancarlo Stanton hit two home runs — a two-run bomb in the first inning and a solo shot in the third inning. Stanton then added a bases-loaded double to score Mike Aviles and Adam Conley in the fourth inning. Marcell Ozuna hit a three-run home run in the seventh inning.

Conley (6-5, 5.17) gave up five runs in five innings on six hits and no walks while striking out four. Carlos Asuaje hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. Jose Pirela‘s single drove in Manuel Margot, Wil Myers‘ sacrifice fly scored Asuaje, and Jabari Blash hit a two-run home run in the sixth inning.

Dinelson Lamet (7-5, 4.84) starts tonight’s second game against former Padre Odrisamer Despaigne (0-1, 4.42) beginning at 4:10pm PDT.
