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

The Padres (62-76) scored fewer runs than the St Louis Cardinals (70-67) yesterday afternoon, 2-0, in the first of four games at Petco Park.

Luis Perdomo (7-9, 4.62) gave up two runs on seven hits and three walks with six strikeouts in six innings. Yadier Molina‘s bases-loaded single in the fourth inning drove in Tommy Pham and Paul DeJong.

Carlos Martinez (11-10, 3.34) shut the Padres out in a complete game on three hit and three walks while striking out ten. Manuel Margot had one hit and Wil Myers the other two. Cory Spangenberg and Jabari Blash each struck out twice.

Travis Wood (3-4, 5.47) starts tonight against Michael Wacha (10-7, 4.20) beginning at 7:10pm PDT.
