It was a great night for baseball at the Diamond as the weather stayed in the 70's for most of the evening. We showed up ready to watch the future of the Padres perform and we didn't leave wanting. Kellen Kulbacki, Cedric Hunter & Jeremy Hunt all had two hits, but it was Hunter and Kulbacki that flexed their muscles.. In the 5th inning with 1 on and 2 outs Cedric Hunter came to the plate and hammered a 2 run HR to CF for his 5th of the season. In the 6th it was Kulbacki's turn to go deep with 1 on and 2 outs, and put his 17th of the season well over the RF monster.

Meanwhile Rolondo Valdez was smooth and in control for 5 innings, and kept the 66ers off balance all night. He got a little shaky in the 6th, but worked his way out of the inning for a very solid start.

Robert Woodard came on in relief of Valdez and one thing that caught all of our eyes was this guys strange wind up....check it out !
