Padres 5, White Sox 0: Kemp struts his stuff

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

If you missed a few innings of this afternoon's game, you share something in common with everybody else who was listening.  The radio feed disappeared for a couple innings in the middle of the game. But Gameday kept on ticking, so we can tell you that the Padres pitching staff combined to shut the White Sox down this afternoon. Odrisamer Despaigne started for the Friars and held the Sox to two hits and a walk in his two innings on the hill while picking up a pair of Ks. Brandon Morrow joined O-Des in the two inning club, and veteran reliever Jose Valverde impressed with a couple strikeouts in his spotless ninth inning performance.

Offensively, Matt Kemp got into the groove with a couple singles and an RBI in his three at bats. Tim Federowicz, a.k.a. the guy that came with Kemp, went 1-2, smacking an RBI double up the middle to give the Padres their first lead of the spring in the bottom of the fifth inning.

The team heads to Scottsdale tomorrow, where James Shields will make his spring debut against the Giants. You can hear the first pitch at 12:05 PM on 1090 AM.
