CY goes 7 strong in win over Royals

If Chris Young didn't look season ready before, he does now. The big 6'10" Padres' right-hander pitched 7 strong innings, giving up 2 runs on 5 hits against the Kansas City Royals on Saturday.

Second baseman Tadahito Iguchi got the scoring started with a 2-run HR in the 5th inning, scoring Callix Crabbe who singled prior to the HR. The score stayed tied until the 10th inning when pinch-hitter Jose Lobaton's bloop single scored the winning run in the 10th. Adrian Gonzalez (.355) had a double and a single in 3 at bats.

Up next for the Padres, they will be at home in Peoria to face the Chicago Cubs. Greg Maddux will get the start against his former team opposite Jason Marquis. Game time is 1:05pm.
