Aaron Cunningham had four hits in his first game back from the disabled list Saturday as the Tucson Padres defeated Las Vegas, 6-4.
Cunningham had been on Tucson's seven-day DL with a concussion. Anthony Rizzo went 1-for-3 with a double and a sacrifice fly in his second game back with Tucson, putting his PCL batting average at .359.
Las Vegas scored the first run of the game but the Padres came back with two in the fourth on a solo home run by Jarrett Hoffpauir and an RBI single by Luis Martinez. Tucson added three more runs one inning later in a rally that included James Darnell's fifth home run in 14 Triple-A games. Darnell now has 22 home runs this season combined between Double-A and Triple-A.
Jon Van Benschoten picked up his first win in the Padres organization, pitching seven innings, allowing three earned runs. He now has allowed four earned runs in 12 innings in two hitter-friendly ballparks (Tucson and Las Vegas) since being signed by San Diego from the independent Atlantic league.
Las Vegas starting pitcher Luis Perez was ejected in the fourth inning after throwing a pitch behind Matt Clark.
Tim Hagerty is the play-by-play announcer for the Tucson Padres.
