Despite his struggles at the plate this season, which includes an 0 for 5 on Saturday, Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko's may be close to finding his swing, according to UTSanDiego.com.

Two of Gyorko's five outs on Saturday were drives to the warning track in center field with the wind blowing in at Wrigley Field.

"Obviously, you want the hits to start falling, but we’re not out chasing a hit," Gyorko said. "It’s a process that we started, and I think it’s starting to come out a little bit."

Coming into Sunday, Gyorko's batting average is .121 -- the lowest among the team's regulars.

"Any other given day, Jedd probably has two or three home runs here," Padres manager Bud Black said. "He seems to be laying off a little bit of the ball down and away, laying off the high fastball. Didn’t result in any hits [Saturday], but the quality of the at-bats seem to be better."

Padres starter Andrew Cashner (1-2) allowed two runs, non earned, on five hits in five innings on Sunday to defeat the Cubs for his first win of the season.

Cashner struck out five in the win.

"When they stress our starter early, his pitch count was up, really proud of Cash the way he hung in there and gave us six innings when we needed length from the starter," said Padres manager Bud Black to MLB.com

The Cubs scored both of their unearned runs off Cashner in the first inning.

Cashner will try to even up his record Friday against the Dodgers.

Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso was mashing everything in sight heading into the game Monday night in Colorado. He just wasn't driving in a lot of runs.

That changed against the Rockies. Alonso nearly doubled his RBI output on the year with three, courtesy of a two-run single in the first and sacrifice fly in the second. He added another single to sweeten his slash line to .364/.453/.477.

Alonso has reached in 13 of 14 games this season and his on-base percentage ranks 11th in the major leagues.

Coming into 2015, you could make the argument Padres outfielder Wil Myers hadn't yet reached his full potential or lived up to the hype that followed him as a top prospect in the minors. Apparently, any type of talk like that didn't sit too well with the 24-year-old outfielder.

"He told me early in spring training that he heard little whispers this winter that maybe he was not the player everyone made him out to be," Padres manager Bud Black said, per MLB.com. "I think that bothered him."

Myers has already been traded twice in his young career, with the latest deal being in December that shipped him from the Rays to the Padres. 

"More than anything, I am playing with a chip on my shoulder," Myers said. "Last year was the first bad year I had in my pro career. When Tampa traded me away, I felt they had given up on me.

"Almost everything I do is to be able to prove (the Rays) wrong."

Thus far, Myers is off to a good start to his Padres career. Myers, who is primarily hitting leadoff, is batting .283 with one home run, five doubles, eight RBI and 13 runs in 14 games.

"He told me early in spring training he was going to show that he should hit third, fourth or fifth," Black said. "I said, 'Wait a minute. You are not going to hit third or fourth because of the two guys [Justin Upton and Matt Kemp] we have here. Let's go in my office and sit down. Let's put a projected team together out there. You don't want to hit leadoff, so who's going to hit leadoff?' I told him, 'If you hit leadoff every day you might get the most at-bats in the NL,'"

Every so often super closer Craig Kimbrel proves he's mortal. It's rare, but it happens.

It happened Saturday in Chicago when he entered in a 6-6 tie and exited with a defeat, courtesy of two walks and two singles, the last of which was stroked by Starlin Castro and gave the Cubs a victory over the Padres.

Kimbrel had yet to allow a run this season.

Padres right-hander Tyson Ross got plenty of swings-and-misses Saturday against the host Cubs, but that's about the only positive aspect of his outing.

Ross struck out nine in 5 2/3 innings, but he also blew a 2-0 lead, gave up three earned runs, walked five and allowed five hits, including a home run to Miguel Montero that knocked him out of the game. Only a late comeback by San Diego allowed Ross to escape defeat.

Now with 12 walks in 17 2/3 innings pitched this season, Ross will try to zero in on the plate when he pitches Thursday at Colorado.
