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 (28-43) scored fewer runs than the Chicago Cubs (35-34) last night, 3-2, in the first of three games at Wrigley Field.

Clayton Richard (5-7, 4.20) allowed two runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three in six and a third innings. Albert Almora scored on an Anthony Rizzo sacrifice fly in the third inning. In the seventh inning, Willson Contreras led off the inning with a home run and Almora doubled to drive in Javier Baez, who scored on a Jose Pirela fielding error.

In the bottom of the sixth inning, Kris Bryant flied out to Matt Szczur, who then threw out Rizzo as he tried to score. In the process, Rizzo did not slide, instead choosing to lead with his knees and ran into Austin Hedges, who held on to the ball.

Jon Lester (4-4, 3.83) gave up two runs on five hits and a walk with seven strikeouts in six innings. Pirela led off the game with a home run. And Yangervis Solarte hit a solo home run in the third inning.

Tonight, Jhoulys Chacin (6-5, 5.10) starts against Mike Montgomery (0-3, 2.56) in the series’ second game, with first pitch scheduled for 5:05pm PDT.
