Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during a morning at the office, sneaking in a Padres game in between customer calls and sips of the scotch you hid in your desk drawer. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were pretending to work.

The Padres (14-20) scored more runs than the Chicago Cubs (25-7), 7-4, at Wrigley Field this morning in the make-up game of Monday’s rainout.

Colin Rea (3-1, 4.24) allowed all four runs in five innings pitched on seven hits and four walk with three strikeouts. An Anthony Rizzo single in the first inning scored Ben Zobrist, who had an RBI single in the second inning. In the fourth inning, back-to-back doubles by Addison Russell and Tim Federowicz scored two more runs for the Cubs. Carlos Villanueva pitched a shutout inning of relief in the sixth and was credited with the win.

Kyle Hendricks (2-2, 3.03) pitched six and two-thirds innings, allowing three runs on six hits and a walk while striking out eight. Wil Myers reached and advanced to second base on a throwing error in the first inning, allowing Travis Jankowski to score. Matt Kemp then followed with a single to plate Myers. With two outs in the seventh inning, Myers singled to score Jankowski again, Kemp walked, and Brett Wallace hit a three-run home run to put the Padres ahead for good. A Kemp sacrifice fly in the eighth inning plated Adam Rosales and added an insurance run.

In the series finale and second game today, Drew Pomeranz (3-3, 2.12) takes the mound against John Lackey (4-1, 4.02) at 5:05pm PDT.
