    Down one run, with the bases loaded and two outs, Jerry Hairston Jr. launched the San Diego Padres to a record night with one swing.

    Against the New York Mets, the Padres scored 16 runs in the first 6 innings Monday night. They scored 16 runs in their previous 6 games!

    Pads fans owe it all to the team's version of Triple H.  Hairston hit a grand slam in the second inning and Chase Headley had a homer among his four hits.

    Nick Hundley chipped in big time, after game-winning runs Saturday and Sunday, with a two-run double in the third inning.

    Hairston, Hundley and Headley combined were 9 for 14 with 7 runs batted in and 7 runs scored.

    The Padres will start June with a two game lead in the NL West.
