Wells Sharp, Padres Roster Moves
David Wells allowed two solo home runs, one off the bat of Hank Blalock and another to Michael Young.
"I'll admit it, I don't throw as hard as I used to, but I can still bring it," Wells said. Hank Blalock stood back and smacked everything I threw at him."
The only other run scored on a single by Kevin Mench. Akinori Otsuka, Jay Witasick and Jason Szuminski provided three scoreless innings of relief to preserve the victory.
"Great effort. He was sharp," Bochy said of Wells. "We got him where we wanted him, right around 75 pitches. I thought he looked good tonight."
The Padres grabbed a 2-0 lead in the second inning, when Jeff Cirillo produced an RBI single and Sean Burroughs singled in a run. A triple in the fourth from Khalil Greene plated a run to put the team up 3-1. The Padres put it away in the seventh when Brian Giles connected for a two run blast. Brian Buchanon and Todd Sears each added an RBI.
Mark Loretta and Burroughs each continue to swing hot bats. Both are hitting over .400 this spring. Brian Giles hit his fourth spring home run on Monday.
In six innings of work, Witasick has not allowed an earned run and has given up just one hit.
After roster moves on Monday the Padres have 32 players in camp and 37 on the 40-man roster.
he San Diego Padres today released left-handed pitcher Kevin Walker and catcher Tom Wilson.
In addition, the Padres reassigned left-handed pitchers Mike Bynum and Edgar Huerta and right-handed pitcher Bart Miadich to Triple-A Portland. The team also outrighted right-handed pitcher Brian Sweeney to Portland.
The Padres explored a trade with the Phillies regarding Ricky Ledee before settling for Kerry Robinson when the demands for Ledee proved to be too high.
Left-handed reliever Kevin Walker, released by San Diego, said the Tigers "are on top of the list" of teams he'd like to join. Walker cited his relationship with Trammell, whom he knew when Trammell was a coach for the Padres before rejoining the Tigers. Walker pitched in 70 games as a rookie in 2000, but he has appeared sparingly in the majors since then. He had ligament-transplant surgery in 2001.
