San Diego Padres
Los Angeles Dodgers
Will Venable homered and hit a bases-loaded triple for the San Diego Padres, who rebounded from a dreadful six-game trip to win their home opener 9-3 against the rival Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday at reconfigured Petco Park.
Venable tied his career-high with four RBIs. He homered in the first and his two-out triple highlighted a five-run eighth against three Dodgers relievers. The Padres sent 11 batters to the plate that inning, five of whom walked.
Nick Hundley also homered off Josh Beckett for the Padres, who were outhomered 10-1 and outscored 40-14 in going 1-5 in a swing through New York and Colorado.
Venable's homer in the first landed in the first row behind the Jack Daniel's Old No. 7 Deck on top of Petco Park's new right-field fence, which was brought in 11 feet. It would have been a homer under the old configuration.
Hundley homered leading off the fifth off the facade of the balcony on the second level of the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse in th...

A few San Diego Padres pitchers visited the MLB Fan Cave recently and decided to take a crack at reading the news, Ron Burgandy style. The results were not exactly perfect, but they definitely put forth some great efforts. Keep it classy, San Diego.

The San Diego Padres had their home opener last night, and apparently they like the new dimensions. The team has struggled to score runs so far this year, but they put nine on the board en route to a 9-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers. Perhaps it's coincidence, but San Diego hit two home runs in the game. They had hit one in their previous six games combined. Remember...
San Diego Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin had to exit last
night’s contest against the Los Angeles Dodgers after he was hit on the right
wrist with a pitch. X-rays have since come back negative, and Quentin is
considered day-to-day by the team.
Quentin was hit on the right wrist by a sinker from Ronald
Belisario. At first, Quentin seemed to be OK and content with simply...
Padres manager Bud Black, general manager Josh Byrnes and assistant G.M. A.J. Hinch spent several minutes throwing baseballs off the new fence in right field at Petco Park on Monday, trying to get a crash course in how they might play starting with the home opener Tuesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The big hope, of course, is that more balls will fly over the fences. They...
Granted, with the classic comedy being released way back in 2004, it could be argued that nods to “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgandy”have long passed their timely pop culture reference expiration date. But that does not mean the folks at MLB Fan Cave didn’t believe some humor could be mined out of having Brad Brach, Luke Gregerson, Dale Thayer, Anthony Bass and Joe Thatcher...

The MLB Fan Cave was the site of another quirky attempt at laughs this week. The San Diego Padres bullpen stopped by to do an Anchorman spoof and take turns being Ron Burgundy. While the written material and impressions aren't going to have this appear on SNL anytime soon, I will say the rendition of Afternoon Delight at the end...
It goes without saying that sometimes when you’ve been out on the road for a while and things aren’t quite breaking your way, there’s no place like home to catch your breath and get back on track. This proved to be true for the San Diego Padres tonight as they opened their home schedule at Petco Park after a dismal 1-5 road trip to start the season.
The Dodgers and the Padres...

I’m a little surprised it took this long for the San Diego Padres to do an Anchorman parody video, but nevertheless, here we are. On Friday, the Padres and major league baseball released a video of the Padres’ bullpen staff, arguably the best thing about this 1-5 team*, in their very own version of Anchorman, as a tribute to “San Diego’s own Ron Burgundy”. If you ask me...
