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

The Padres (35-48) scored more runs than the Cleveland Indians (44-38) last night at Progressive Field, 1-0, in the first of three games.

Trevor Cahill (3-2, 2.96) returned from the disabled list and shutout the Indians for four and a third innings on four hits and two walks with four strikeouts. Jose Torres, Kirby Yates, Ryan Buchter, Brad Hand, and Brandon Maurer combined to allow just one hit and one walk over the last four and two-thirds innings of the shutout.

Corey Kluber (7-3, 2.85) gave up one run on five hits and a walk with ten strikeouts over eight innings. Cory Spangenberg beat out a double play attempt, driving in Hector Sanchez in the fifth inning. Wil Myers struck out four times in four at-bats and Hunter Renfroe struck out three times in four at-bats.

Luis Perdomo (3-4, 4.71) starts this evening’s second game against Trevor Bauer (7-6, 5.24) beginning at 4:10pm PDT.
