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 (62-77) scored fewer runs than the St Louis Cardinals (71-67), 8-4, last night at Petco Park.

Travis Wood (3-5, 6.00) pitched just two-plus innings, giving up seven runs (six earned) on seven hits and a walk with one strikeout. Jose Martinez hit a two-run home run in the first inning. Harrison Bader hit a three-run home run in the second inning. In the third inning, Paul DeJong scored on a fielder’s choice hit into by Yadier Molina and a throwing error by Yangervis Solarte and Stephen Piscotty singled Martinez in. Martinez hit a solo home run in the seventh inning.

Michael Wacha (11-7, 4.21) allowed four runs (three earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out six in six innings. Jose Pirela and Solarte scored on a Wil Myers single in the first inning. Wood hit a two-run home run in the second inning.

Dinelson Lamet (7-6, 4.40) starts tonight against Jack Flaherty (0-0, 11.25) in the third game of the series beginning at 7:10pm PDT.
