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

The Padres (34-46) scored more runs than the New York Yankees (39-40) in the first game of three, 7-6, last night at Petco Park.

Colin Rea (5-3, 4.79) pitched six innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on four hits and a walk with five strikeouts. In the second inning, a Jacoby Ellsbury single drove-in Didi Gregorius. Brian McCann hit a solo home run in the sixth inning. In the ninth inning, the Padres nearly threw the game away, literally. Matt Thornton started the inning by walking McCann and hitting Starlin Castro with pitch. Pinch-hitter Alex Rodriguez then singled to bring McCann in. Brandon Maurer then came in to pitch — and give up a double to Gregorius that drove-in Castro. Aaron Hicks ground out to shortstop, but Rodriguez scored. The Yankees then had Carlos Beltran pinch-hit for Anthony Swarzak, and Maurer threw a wild pitch that allowed Gregorius to score. After Beltran doubled, Maurer got the last two outs for his first Major League save.

Nathan Eovaldi (6-6, 5.54) surrendered six runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two in four and one-third innings. In the first inning, a single by Melvin Upton Jr. scored Wil Myers and Derek Norris followed that up with a double to bring Yangervis Solarte and Upton Jr. across the plate. Ryan Schimpf hit his first major league home run, a solo shot to right center field, in the second inning. Myers hit a two-run home run with Travis Jankowski on base in the fifth inning. With Swarzak pitching to Norris in the seventh inning, a passed ball by McCann let Solarte come in from third base.

Tonight starting at 7:10pm PDT, Drew Pomeranz (7-7, 2.76) takes the mound against former Padres’ farmhand Ivan Nova (5-5, 5.32) in the second game at Petco Park.
