Padres Like It at Home

The Padres scored 13 runs on 15 hits against the Nationals and win 13-4. They've won 11 of 14 at home, and ---- could it be ---- the most vilified offensive ballpark in baseball has become hitters' favorite?

St. Louis starter Tyler Lyons pitched seven strong innings to win in his major league debut. The Padres countered with Burch Smith, who lasted less than two innings in just his third big league game. St. Louis won it 5-3 to take two of three at Petco Park.

Smith gave up three runs in the first and another in the second before getting pulled by manager Bud Black. After the game Black told reporters the young pitcher would head back to the minors.

Lyons was impressive. One of the few mistakes he made was a seventh inning pitch that Jedd Gyorko deposited over the center field fence. The 438-yard blast was his seventh of the season.

The Padres are off Thursday and begin a three game series in Arizona on Friday.
