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 (16-31) scored fewer runs than the New York Mets (19-24), 9-3, last night in the first of three games at Citi Field.

Jhoulys Chacin (4-4, 5.74) continued the disturbing trend of Padres starters giving up a lot of runs in the first inning, allowing seven runs on eight hits with no walks or strikeouts in two-thirds of an inning. Michael Conforto led off the Mets’ first inning with a home run and it just got worse from there.

Conforto added another solo home run in the fourth inning. In the seventh inning, Lucas Duda singled to drive in Juan Lagares. Hunter Renfroe threw out Wilmer Flores at third base on the same play.

Matt Harvey (3-3, 5.36) gave up two runs on three hits and four walks in five inning while striking out six. Cory Spangenberg drove in Ryan Schimpf with a single and Hunter Renfroe scored on Austin Hedges‘ groundout in the second inning. Schimpf hit a solo home run in the sixth inning.

Jarred Cosart (0-1, 2.70) gets the start tonight against Robert Gsellman (2-3, 6.75) starting at 4:10pm PDT.
