Headley reaches 50 RBI since All-Star break

The Sports Xchange

With a two-run homer and a run-scoring single Monday, Chase Headley has 50 RBI since the All-Star break.

That is the most RBI by a Padre in the second half of a season since Phil Nevin had 52 RBI in the second half of 2004.

The home run was Headley's 16th since the All-Star break. That is the most homers in the second half of a Padres season since Adrian Gonzalez hit 16 homers in the second half of both the 2007 and 2009 seasons.

Over his last two games, Headley has gone 6-for-10 with two homers and nine RBI.

Headley's Monday homer gave the Padres a 2-0 lead over the Dodgers in the first inning, and his seventh-inning single broke a tie and put San Diego ahead 3-2. He got no offensive support, however, as the Padres lost 4-3 in 11 innings.

San Diego scattered 10 hits against five Los Angeles pitchers but went 2-for-10 with runners in scoring position. Both hits were by Headley, who also lined out with a runner on second base in the third inning.

The Dodgers meanwhile, went 2-for-3 with runners in scoring position, winning the game on A.J. Ellis' 11th-inning single off Cory Burns.
