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

The Padres (24-39) scored fewer runs than the Kansas City Royals (27-34) at Petco Park yesterday, 12-6.

Miguel Diaz (1-1, 6.92) started his first game in the Major Leagues and allowed no runs on one hit and three walks with one strikeout in two innings. Craig Stammen, Jose Torres, and Kirby Yates combined to allow three runs in relief. Then Brad Hand and Jose Valdez came into pitch and allowed nine runs (eight earned) in one and two-thirds innings, with the final blow coming on a grand slam home run by Lorenzo Cain in the eighth inning.

Ian Kennedy (0-6, 5.40) pitched six innings, giving up four runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five. Jose Pirela led off the first inning with a solo home run. In the fifth inning, Pirela hit a two-run double and Yangervis Solarte hit a run scoring single. Solarte singled again in the seventh inning to drive in Pirela. Erick Aybar hit an RBI single in the eighth inning.

This afternoon’s series finale will have Dinelson Lamet (2-1, 6.92) going up against Jake Junis (1-0, 5.23) starting at 1:40pm PDT.
