The Padres are reviewing security measures ahead of this weekend’s series against the Dodgers a week after a San Francisco Giants fan was badly beaten following the season opener.

The director of security met with private security and the San Diego Police Department and plans to increase staffing levels, according to Padres officials.

"Because this is a heated rivalry. Because both teams are competing for a division crown, there seems to be more intensity when fans get together," said Mark Guglielmo, Padres vice president of ballpark operations.

Bryan Stow, 42, was attacked last week in the parking lot at Dodger Stadium and was in a comatose state and critical condition.

According to the witness, the victim was socked from behind and "went down like a log."

He hit the back of his head on the ground, rendering him unconscious. The second suspect then started kicking the victim on the ground.
