Blake Tekotte the catalyst in Padres 2-1 win

Blake Tekotte was the center of the action today.  In his first Major League start he crushed a double and a triple past Jayson Werth in right field.  He had one of the Padres two RBI.  He also had a minor collision in the outfield with a sliding Ryan Ludwick that allowed a double to drop for Jerry Hairston Jr.  Even though they've never played the outfield together before, I'm not sure why that makes a difference when you don't call for the ball.

Logan Forsythe was part of today's youth movement and hit a single that should have extended the Padres lead and scored Headley off second if he wasn't so slow.  Headley looked like he was out for a morning jog as he rounded third base.  At least lean your head back, squint your eyes and pump your arms so it looks like you're trying to run fast.

Tim Stauffer won his first game of the season after 10 starts.

Go Padres!
