The San Diego Padres showed some life in their offense Tuesday night as Will Venable, Derek Norris, and Alexi Amarista each punched in two runs as they went on to beat the New York Mets, 7-2, at Petco Park.

The crowd was also pleased to see first baseman Yonder Alonso back in the lineup. Tuesday night was his first game back since May 7. The slugger missed 23 games due to a bruised right shoulder.

In his first game back from injury Alonso went 4-3 and also scored two runs. Not to mention, he made a great defensive play, making a leaping catch, to rob Lucas Duda of an extra-base hit.

“I just want to make sure I do my part and enjoy it and compete,” Alonso said

Tuesday night was everything manager Bud Black could hope for. With the win, the Padres now own an all-time 25-14 record against the New York Mets at Petco Park. The series finale is Wednesday night at 6:10 p.m.
