WCB, road success
West Coast Bias revisited the Padres of rookie GM Towers. Tibits going into tonight's game at Dodgers Stadium: The Padres have beaten the Dodgers six in a row and nine of 11, and have won the season series for the first time since 2007...A win tonight would be San Diego's 11th against L.A. this year and the club's most since going 13-5 against the Dodgers in 2006...Miguel Tejada has 289 career home runs as a shortstop, raking third all-time behind Cal Ripken, Jr. (345) and Alex Rodriguez (344)...The Padres' .558 road winning percentage leads the National League. With three more road victories, the Padres would tie the franchise record (46-35) set in 1996.
