Maddux effortless in Padres' 9-6 win

At 41 years of age, Greg Maddux shouldn't be making it look this easy and absolutely effortless, but that's exactly what he did this afternoon in Peoria.

Maddux threw 2 scoreless innings in his first start of the spring, needing only 18 pitches to get through both innings as the Padres defeated the San Francisco Giants 9-6.

Offensively, the team was led by newcomer Tony Clark who had a 2-run double as well as Paul McAnulty who hit his 2nd HR in as many days. New addition Tadahito Iguchi also had 2 hits for the Padres today.

Next up for San Diego will be the Oakland A's at the Phoenix Municipal Stadium tomorrow afternoon. Randy Wolf will get the start for San Diego, he should be followed by Shawn Estes and Justin Germano. First pitch scheduled for 12:05pm.
