Headley leads offensive charge in 11-10 win

Another Padre pitcher couldn't get out of the first inning for the 2nd straight day. Left-hander Randy Wolf lasted just 2/3 of an inning, giving up 3 runs on 2 hits, eventually being pulled for right-hander Justin Germano who threw 2 1/3 scoreless.

The highlight for the Padres however, besides their 11-10 win over the Seattle Mariners, was top prospect Chase Headley. Headley had a 2-run HR and a 2-run double, showing the Padres' front office that he's going to try and win the LF job outright. Another bright spot was Rule 5 draftee Callix Crabbe who had the game winning double with 1 out in the bottom of the 9th.

Right-hander Cla Meredith pitched for the first time and had a scoreless inning, striking out the side. Another Padres prospect that impressed was left-hander Wade LeBlanc, who also had a scoreless inning today.

The Mariners and Padres will play again tomorrow at the Peoria Sports Complex. First pitch is scheduled for 12:05pm.
