Rizzo Homers Twice in T-Pad's Win

Posted By on Tue, May 17, 2011 at 10:58 AM

Anthony Rizzo homered twice as the Tucson Padres clobbered the Albuquerque Isotopes. Here are the details from the Padres' Tim Hagerty:

Anthony Rizzo hit two home runs in the first two innings Monday, leading the Tucson Padres to a 10-4 win over the Albuquerque Isotopes. The Padres have now won two of three in the series, and three of their last four games. Wade LeBlanc continues to be as consistent as any T-Pads starter, pitching seven innings, allowing three runs, while striking out eight.

One night after falling behind 7-1 early, the Padres scored eight times in the first three innings, and at one point led 8-2. Every Tucson starting position player had at least one hit, including Orlando Hudson, who was 1-for-2 with two walks and three runs scored. In total in his injury rehab assignment, Hudson has been retired only one time in seven plate appearances.

Greg Burke pitched two innings for Tucson to close the game, allowing one run on a pinch-hit home run by J.D. Closser. Aaron Cunningham was 2-for-5 with a double and two RBIs for Tucson, and Matt Clark went 2-for-3 with a home run, triple and three RBIs.

The final game of the homestand is tonight—and a wrapper from Kraft singles gets you two-for-one admission! Details here.
