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 (38-49) scored more runs than the Philadelphia Phillies (28-58), 2-1, yesterday at Citizens Bank Park.

Jhoulys Chacin (8-7, 4.32) allowed one run on three hits and two walk while striking out six in six and a third innings. Maikel Franco hit a solo home run in the fifth inning. Kirby Yates, Ryan Buchter, and Brandon Maurer allowed only one hit and one walk in the final two and two-thirds innings.

Aaron Nola (6-6, 3.59) gave up two runs in eight innings on four hits and two walks with nine strikeouts. Carlos Asuaje tripled in the seventh inning to drive in Hunter Renfroe and Austin Hedges‘ single scored Asuaje.

The Padres try for the sweep as Trevor Cahill (3-2, 2.96) starts today’s series finale against Jerad Eickhoff (0-7, 4.93) starting at 10:35am PDT.
