• Amarista's productive day gives Padres win

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated May 15, 2013
    Every starter had at least one hit for the Padres, including Amarista, who entered the game batting .233 in 73 at-bats. "With Baker, Amarista and Blanks in the lineup, those guys want to be a part of the contribution," said Padres manager Bud Black. "It takes all 25 [players]. It was great for those guys. This was a good team win." Alexi Amarista homered and doubled twice and the San Diego Padres matched their season-high with 17 hits, beating the Baltimore Orioles 8-4 Wednesday for a two-game sweep. From there, the Padres added on two runs in the fourth, two more in the seventh. Not so long ago, the Padres were scuffling for victories no matter the opponent. Baker's two-run single in the second wasn't the decisive blow in the Padres' 8-4 win over the Orioles before a crowd of 32,418 at Camden Yards, because the bottom of the lineup produced over and over again, as San Diego won for the second time in this brief two-game series. The Grandy Man, in his first game back after breaking his arm during spring training, must have transferred his injury curse mojo to King Felix, who finished the inning with discomfort and didn't come out for the seventh.
