Scott Hairston #12 of the San Diego Padres reacts after being hit by a pitch during the MLB spring training game against the Seattle Mariners at Peoria Stadium on March 6, 2010 in Peoria, Arizona.
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.
