Padres’ Yangervis Solarte: Pops first homer of season
Solarte went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and an RBI single in Tuesday’s 4-0 win over Los Angeles.
His first-inning single gave the Padres all the offense they ended up needing, but Solarte added on two innings later with the homer. The Padres’ second baseman has knocked in three runs in the first two games of the year; he hit third in the opener and cleanup on Tuesday, and if Solarte can remain in the heart of the order, he has an opportunity to rack up plenty of counting stats for a youthful San Diego offense that has considerable upside.
