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 (69-84) scored more runs than the Colorado Rockies (82-71), 3-0, last night in the first of four games at Petco Park.

Clayton Richard (8-14, 4.63) shut the Rockies out over seven and a third innings on seven hits and a walk while striking out eight. Kirby Yates finished the eighth inning and Brad Hand struck out the side in the ninth inning for his twentieth save.

Tyler Anderson (5-6, 5.24) allowed three runs on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts in five and two-thirds innings. Christian Villanueva hit a solo home run — his second in as many days — in the fifth inning. Manuel Margot scored on a Hunter Renfroe sacrifice fly and Villanueva’s single drove in Wil Myers in the sixth inning.

Jordan Lyles (1-3, 7.35) starts tonight’s game against Jon Gray (8-4, 3.75) with first pitch scheduled for 7:10pm PDT.
