Hudson, Hundley keep on contributing · Notes, Quotes · Roster Report
 

The Padres are hitting .214 as a team after 11 games, but two members of the team have been hot since the start of the season.

Both figured prominently in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Reds at Petco Park.

Second baseman Orlando Hudson, who has hit safely in nine consecutive games and reached base in all 11, scored the tying run in the eighth inning and followed with a walk-off, two-out, bases-loaded single in the ninth.

Catcher Nick Hundley, who is hitting .406, drove in the Padres' first run in the seventh with a sacrifice fly, and he scored the winning run.

Hudson is hitting .317 with a .390 on-base percentage. He also has five steals in 11 games, which is only five short of his career high set in both 2007 and 2010.

Hundley leads the Padres with eight RBI. He has two doubles, a triple and two homers for a .719 slugging percentage, and he has an impressive .487 on-base percentage.
