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 (24-38) scored more runs than the Kansas City Royals (26-34), 6-3, at Petco Park last night in the first of three games.

Jhoulys Chacin (5-5, 5.35) gave up two runs on three hits and two walks in seven innings while striking out six. Salvador Perez hit a two-run home run in the fifth inning. In the ninth inning, Mike Moustakas‘ sacrifice fly scored Lorenzo Cain.

Eric Skoglund (1-1, 5.59) lasted just one and a third innings, giving up two runs on seven hits and two walks with one strikeout. In the first inning, Wil Myers scored on Austin Hedges‘ RBI single. Chacin hit a double in the second inning, driving in Erick Aybar. Matt Szczur hit a pinch-hit solo home run in the seventh inning. In the eighth inning, a double by Franchy Cordero drove in Aybar and Szczur, and Yangervis Solarte popup was misplayed for a single, scoring Cordero.

This afternoon, Miguel Diaz (1-1, 7.50) gets his first Major League start against former Padre Ian Kennedy (0-6, 5.33). The game will be broadcast on Fox Sports 1 starting at 1:10pm PDT.
