Way To Go Pads!

Way to go Padres!! I like hearing that they won 17-2!!

Venable, Blanks break out in 10-run fourth as Padres demolish Braves

In one afternoon, the San Diego Padres piled up the kind of numbers that might normally take them an entire homestand to accomplish.

Making their spacious downtown ballpark look more like a bandbox, the Padres routed the Atlanta Braves 17-2 on Monday.
San Diego's 17 runs were its highest total ever for a home opener and the most by any team at Petco Park since it opened in 2004. The Padres also had 19 hits.

Will Venable hit a two-run homer to highlight the 10-run fourth inning. Kyle Blanks homered, doubled and drove in a career-high five runs.

Venable (triple, single, homer) and Blanks (double, homer, single) each finished a hit shy of the cycle. No Padres batter has ever hit for the cycle. Venable scored four runs and drove in two, and Blanks scored three times in San Diego's 42nd home opener.
