Eaton also surrendered a home run to Rod Barajas. He did, however, strike out nine. Trevor Hoffman and Brandon Puffer each allowed two runs while Akinori Otsuka and Joey Hamilton pitched one inning apiece of scoreless ball.
Sean Burroughs had a 3-4 day and added his third triple of the spring. Brian Giles would later drive him in with a double. Burroughs is now hitting .395 in the Cactus League.
Jeff Cirillo hit a two run homer, his first extra base hit of the spring and is now 3-for-6 in his last two games. Jon Knott walked prior to the Cirillo home run.
"He's swinging the bat better," Bochy said of Cirillo. "It's good to see him swing the way he's been swinging lately. He's looking confident.
The Padres left eleven men on base in the game, while Texas left just five.
LHP David Wells, scheduled to start today's game against San Francisco in Scottsdale, will pitch in a minor league game in Peoria instead. There is a slight concern about a strained muscle in his chest.
Tristan H. Cockcroft of CBS Sportsline recently named Khalil Greene among her top 50 future stars. Greene placed 47th on the list and earned the following from Cockcroft, "The Padres' projected opening day shortstop might take some time to adapt to major-league pitching, but he should be a top-10, if not top-five, Fantasy shortstop in his prime."
Greene was the only Padre to appear on the list, although the list only comprised of future stars 26-50.
