Notes on Tonight's Game

This Matt Lawton trade could get ugly in a hurry. Jody Gerut visibly had problems getting to a ball hit by Mark Loretta, then was replaced by Rob Mackowiak. Gerut is apparently day-to-day. The Padres' broadcast showed a shot of his leg, and the brace he wears is enormous. I don't know whether that means anything or not - but I wouldn't be surprised if he were shut down for a while.

On the bright side, what a performance by Brad Eldred. He reached base five times, hit three doubles and drove in the game-winning run. Single game performances rarely mean much in the grand scheme of things, but this one may be enough for Eldred to get Daryle Ward pipped.
