The Padres took it to the Reds yesterday in a good looking win. In fact in the fourth inning the team batted around en route to a six run inning. I won’t go into too much detail since it is all spelled out in the articles below. I will say that it is nice to see some station to station offensive production out of the team, even if it is only spring. Two guys I do want to highlight real quick though are Jedd Gyorko and Kyle Blanks. Obviously we know what Gyorko has done of late. He added another home run yesterday to up his spring total to three and RBI total to nine. Lost in the mix though is how well Kyle Blanks is doing this spring. We know what the guy can do when he is healthy, and he is showing that now. Yesterday he went 1-1 with a walk and an RBI. But more importantly he is hitting .625 so far. I for one hope that is a good sign and also hope that the Padres can use him this season. Chances are with Carlos Quentin in left field you will see Blanks at some point. Today is split squad
