Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during Memorial Day at the pub, soaking up all the hot Vedder Cup action. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (20-32) scored fewer runs than the Seattle Mariners (29-21), 9-3, in the first of two at Safeco Field.

Andrew Cashner (2-4, 4.87) started out well, throwing four scoreless innings and only giving up one hit. Cashner got out of trouble unscathed in the fifth when Kyle Seager walked and Adam Lind singled to begin the inning. Then the sixth inning happened. Nori Aoki reached on catcher’s interference with one out and scored on a Seth Smith double. After Robinson Cano struck out, Smith scored on Nelson Cruz‘s double. Seager then hit a two-run home run to right field. Cashner’s day ended after six and a third innings, four runs (three earned) scored on six hits and a walk, while striking out three. In the eighth inning, Brandon Maurer walked Cano, who advanced on a double by Cruz. Maurer then walked Seager and Lind singled to score Cano and pinch-runner Luis Sardinas. Dae-ho Lee then hit a three-run home run.

Nate Karns (4-1, 3.53) pitched six and two-thirds innings, giving up two runs on eight hits and a walk with six strikeouts. Designated hitter Christian Bethancourt‘s RBI single in the second inning put the Padres ahead 1-0. In the sixth inning, a Brett Wallace RBI double gave the Friars their second run. And, in the ninth inning, Alexei Ramirez singled to score Derek Norris for the Padres final run.

James Shields (2-6, 3.06) gets the start this afternoon against Hisashi Iwakuma (3-4, 4.33). First pitch at Safeco Field is at 12:40pm PDT.
