Go Padres!

Padres' ace is swingin' and slingin'

Jake Peavy pitched like a Cy Young winner and hit like a Silver Slugger, and the Padres eased to a 4-0 win over the Astros last night before a sellout crowd at Petco Park to smoothly open the 40th season of major league baseball in San Diego.

Peavy, the unanimous winner of the Cy Young last year, shut out the Astros for seven innings, allowing three hits and three walks. The Padres led 3-0 after his 107th and final pitch.

“Jake threw the ball well all night,” manager Bud Black said. “He held his stuff through the seventh inning. As the game went on, he seemed more in control.”

PS Sorry Tiger fans, sounds as though Opening Day didn't bode so well...
