Verlander does it with bat, arm in Tigers win over Padres

Verlander does it with bat, arm in Tigers win over Padres SAN DIEGO -- Detroit Tigers right-hander Justin Verlander made the San Diego Padres pay for a decade-old mistake Saturday night. Verlander, who was passed over by the Padres on the first pick of the 2004 draft, allowed two runs on eight hits over seven innings plus getting the first two hits of his major league career in the Tigers 6-2 win over the Padres before a sellout crowd of 42,182 at Petco Park.

Preview: Tigers at Padres

The San Diego Padres are hoping their slow start at the plate is a thing of the past as they head into Saturday’s matchup against the visiting Detroit Tigers. After being held to a total of 20 runs in their first nine games, the Padres showed signs of life in Friday’s series-opening 6-0 win over the Tigers, with Chase Headley breaking out of a 4-for-32 season-opening slump by delivering an RBI double and a two-run homer.

Preview: Padres at Indians

The Cleveland Indians’ young starting rotation entered the season full of promise, but their last five starters have combined for a 7.66 ERA over 22 1/3 innings. Right-hander Corey Kluber will look to reverse the trend on Monday when the Indians begin a three-game series against the visiting San Diego Padres, who snapped a four-game losing streak Sunday with a 4-2 win at Miami. The Padres are still waiting for their offense to get untracked after batting a collective .189 through the first six games.

Preview: Padres at Marlins

The Miami Marlins looked like a team that could surprise some people with a strong opening series against the Colorado Rockies. The Marlins will attempt to keep things streaking in their favor when they welcome another National League West foe in the San Diego Padres on Friday. Miami took three of four in the season-opening series and benefited from timely hitting and a bullpen that allowed one run in the four contests.

MLB Team Report - San Diego Padres - INSIDE PITCH Although the Padres have addressed one need this winter, they have not made the impact move or trade that Padres fans had hoped for ... and felt they were promised. A team that struggled against right-handed pitching -- particularly in the second half of 2013 after first baseman Yonder Alonso was out or struggling with a right hand injury -- added the left-handed bat they wanted in outfielder Seth Smith via a trade with Oakland.
