Will Venable Reaches The 20/ 20 Mark

Rich Pilling

Hey, you know how I mentioned a few days ago that Will Venable was on the cusp of just the tenth 20/ 20 season in Padres history? Well, cusp-be-gone because he just stole his twentieth base of the season to join Dave Winfield and six other guys who aren't in the Hall of Fame. Well, Joe Carter's bat and stuff are but whatever.

With one out in the top of the sixth inning of a scoreless tie against the Braves today, Venable singled his way on against Julio Teheran. One out later, he stole his way into scoring position and the record books. It accomplished exactly what stolen bases are supposed to do, as he was able to score on Jedd Gyorko's single for the first run of the game.

I imagine the 20/ 20 Club being a lot like the SNL Five Timers Club. He'll get handed a classy smoking jacket and a scotch, and then Steve Finley will show him the ropes and introduce him to Reggie Sanders and the rest of the guys.
