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

The Padres (20-33) scored more runs than the Chicago Cubs (25-25), 5-2, yesterday afternoon in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Jarred Cosart (0-1, 4.50) gave up two runs on three hits, five walks, and one hit-by-pitch, with two strikeouts in just four innings. The Cubs loaded the bases in the first two innings, but only scored on a single in the first inning by Jason Heyward that drove in Ben Zobrist and Anthony Rizzo. Cosart, Jose Torres, and Ryan Buchter combined to walk ten Cubs in seven innings.

Kyle Hendricks (4-3, 3.75) gave up five runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five in five innings. Hendricks retired the first ten batters he faced before Yangervis Solarte singled with one out in the fourth inning. After a Wil Myers‘ single and Ryan Schimpf being hit by a pitch, Hunter Renfroe hit a grand slam home run. In the fifth inning, Torres hit his first Major League hit, Allen Cordoba and Solarte each singled to load the bases again, and Myers singled in Torres.

Tonight, Dinelson Lamet (1-0, 1.80) makes his Petco Park debut against Eddie Butler (2-0, 1.33) starting at 7:10pm PDT.
