Padres beat writer Dan Hayes talked with Anthony Rizzo, whose maturity and sense of humor apparently are on par with his powerful bat.
A few other tidbits:
Joe West's questionable ruling Tuesday that Eric Patterson tagged up too early called to mind similar calls by Bob Davidson, both for and against the Padres long ago. Even after one of those calls benefited them, the Padres still grumbled that Davidson was bent on calling attention to himself. (Not one of those players is still with the club.)
The last time the Brewers were in San Diego, they played four games without manufacturing a run, scoring only on two solo homers. The Padres pitched well, Petco did what Petco does and the Brewers hit below their talent level.
Congratulations to Sean Burroughs for his promotion to Arizona.
