Padres 5, Pirates 2: Gyorko Shows Off In Front Of Friends And Family

Justin K. Aller

The Reds and Cardinals are sending Jedd Gyorko gift baskets tonight.

You might have heard that Jedd Gyorko has plenty of friends and family in town for this Pirates series (in much the same way that you might have heard that Will Venable played basketball at Princeton). After letting Andrew Cashner take the spotlight last night, Jedd did some showing off, going 3 for 5 with a 3 run homer.

And he wasn't the only one swinging a hot bat tonight. Ronny Cedeño went 3 for 4... 
[Note by jodes0405, 09/17/13 9:49 PM PDT ] Cedeño also showed off his D tonight.

... and Tommy Medica, the September Sensation, picked up a pair of singles and an RBI.

Eric Stults didn't shine as bright as Andrew Cashner or Burch Smith, but he pitched a solid five innings, allowing only two runs. He handed it over to the bullpen in the sixth, and they didn't disappoint. Tim Stauffer, Nick Vincent, and Luke Gregerson combined for four hitless innings.

Tyson Ross will go for the series win against Charlie Morton tomorrow at 4:05 PM.
