Chris Denorfia – Leads off the Padres season with a single, draws a walk and scored a run.
Jedd Gyorko – 1-4 with his first major hit.
Yonder Alonso – With the Padres first HR of the season. Let’s hope this is the start of more power production from 1B.
Bud Black – Bud bot strikes again! Not only does he name Volquez as the opening day starter, but the lineup raises questions.
Cody Ransom – 0-2, 2K and an error in the field. At least if Guzman was in the game, he could have made up for that error with some pop.
Edinson Volquez – After returning from the WBC, Volquez started three games for the Padres, throwing nine innings, allowing 7ER, on 12 hits, while walking eight. That was enough to earn him the opening day start for the Padres.
Volquez line today – 3IP, 6H, 6ER, 4K, 3BB. 79 pitches, 40 strikes, 39 balls.
Brad Brach – A rough return home for the New Jersey native, Brach wasn’t able to complete an inning, posting a line of 2/3IP, 4H, 4ER, 1HRA, which happened to be a grand slam.
