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 (38-51) scored fewer runs than the San Francisco Giants (35-56), 5-4, last night in the first of three games at Petco Park.

Clayton Richard (5-9, 4.75) gave up four runs on eleven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in five and two-thirds innings. Buster Posey‘s RBI single in the first inning drove in Brandon Belt. In the second inning, Johnny Cueto singled to score Brandon Crawford but Cueto was thrown out after rounding first base. Miguel Gonzalez‘ sacrifice fly drove in Hunter Pence and Gorkys Hernandez scored on Denard Span‘s single in the sixth inning. Posey hit a solo home run in the seventh inning,

Cueto (6-7, 4.59) allowed three runs in four innings on six hits and three walks with five strikeouts. Cory Spangenberg scored on Jabari Blash‘s double and Blash scored on an Erick Aybar single in the second inning. In the fourth inning, Aybar came home on a single by Austin Hedges. Jose Pirela‘s single in the ninth inning drove in Manuel Margot.

Tonight, Jhoulys Chacin (8-7, 4.32) starts the second game against Madison Bumgarner (0-3, 3.00), who makes his first appearance since going on the disabled list on April 20th. First pitch is scheduled for 5:40pm PDT.
