Bats alive

Someone finally found the power switch to the Padres offense. After scoring more than five runs in two of the first 15 games, San Diego has scored 11, 11 and seven runs in its last three.

Being on the east coast and not having many of the games on TV out here, I don't know exactly what happened starting Thursday but its nice to see the Friars on a three-game winning streak where they have scored 29 runs.

It's also nice to see that even despite still dealing with the blister on his throwing hand, Clay Hensley picked up his first win of the season, meaning David Wells is the only SD starter still looking for his first win of the season.

Wrapping up their series in Colorado on Sunday, the Padres could sweep their first series of the season if Greg Maddux is on. A win will also cut the Dodgers' early season NL West lead, which is always a positive. Let's see if the Padres can put up 12+ runs in the humidor-free zone of Coors Field.
