Sometimes things can get a little fuzzy after a Sunday afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (62-75) scored more runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (92-44) yesterday afternoon, 6-4, in the finale of four games at Petco Park.

Jhoulys Chacin (12-10, 3.96) allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and no walks while striking out eight in seven innings. Chris Taylor led off the fourth inning with a solo home run and Curtis Granderson scored on a Justin Turner ground-rule double. Cody Bellinger scored on a Yasmani Grandal sacrifice fly in the seventh inning. Bellinger hit a solo home run in the ninth inning off Brad Hand.

Alex Wood (14-2, 2.57) gave up four runs on seven hits and three walks in six innings with seven strikeouts. In the first inning, Jose Pirela scored on a wild pitch to Yangervis Solarte as Wil Myers stole second base. Erick Aybar hit a two-run home run in the fourth inning. Pirela hit a solo home run in the fifth inning. With the bases loaded in the seventh inning, Myers singled to drive in Manuel Margot and Carlos Asuaje.

The St Louis Cardinals (69-67) come to Petco Park for four games beginning today at 1:40pm PDT. Luis Perdomo (7-8, 4.69) gets the start this afternoon against Carlos Martinez (10-10, 3.52).
