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 (57-74) were shutout by the San Francisco Giants (53-80) last night, 3-0, in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Jhoulys Chacin (11-10, 4.03) allowed one run on two hits and four walks with three strikeouts in five innings. Brandon Crawford hit a solo home run to lead off the fourth inning. Crawford later scored on a Joe Panik two-run home run in the eighth inning off Phil Maton.

Jeff Samardzija (9-12, 4.43) threw a three hit complete game with five strikeouts and not allowing a walk. Wil Myers singled in the second inning, Yangervis Solarte singled to lead off the bottom of the fifth inning, and Cory Spangenberg singled in the eighth inning.

Luis Perdomo (6-8, 4.84) gets the start in tonight’s second game against Matt Moore (4-12, 5.38). First pitch is scheduled for 7:10pm PDT.
