Padres beat DBacks 6-3; Everth Cabrera with 4 RBI

PHOENIX - APRIL 06: Everth Cabrera #1 of the San Diego Padres hits a 2 RBI double against the Arizona Diamondbacks during the second inning of the major league baseball game at Chase Field on April 6, 2010 in Phoenix, Arizona. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)

Padres win their first game of the season in spectacular fashion.  Hats off to Chris Young who really locked up Arizona hitters all night.  I admit I didn't think Young would be able to battle back from last year's injury but he kept his 85mph fast ball out of the zone and threw a breaking ball to keep batters off balance. Maybe he is the team Ace after all.

This team looks dangerous, like a convict with a temper, nothing to lose and a switch blade. Watching the end of this game, I realized that if was an opposing fan I'd be frightened of the Padres. 

They have the ingredients to make this an exciting season of baseball.  Can't wait to see if this team shows up again tomorrow.  Hopefully Opening Day was a fluke.

Game MVP needs to go to Everth Cabrera.

  • Everth Cabrera with a single, a double, a triple, a rolled ankle and 4 RBI
  • Chris Young with 6 innings of one hit ball. 
  • Adrian Gonzalez homers for the second game in a row
  • Will Venable's first hit of the season is a home run to deep right field.
  • Three stolen bases for the team
