Padres hope offensive improvement carries over on homestand

The Padres found their bats on a 4-4 road trip to Milwaukee, Colorado and Arizona.

Now they hope to make it work to their favor at Petco Park, where they are 7-14 this season.

The Padres open an eight-game homestand Wednesday night against the Brewers, and they play 19 of their next 25 games in San Diego.

But the team that just hit .321 and averaged 6.9 runs a game on the road trip is hitting only .206 and averaging 2.6 runs a game at home this season.

"Offensively, we saw a lot of good things on this trip," manager Bud Black said after the Padres lost 6-1 Tuesday in the series finale at Arizona. "Hopefully, we can continue that and the starting pitching gets back on track when we get home."

Third baseman Chase Headley said, "It's really important for us to reclaim Petco Park. We've played well on the road so far. Generally, you're not going to play much better on the road than we have been.

"But we haven't played well at home this season. We've got to turn that around."
