SURPRISE, Ariz. – Will Venable and Carlos Quentin homered, Chase Headley drove in three runs with a pair of doubles and the San Diego Padres beat the Texas Rangers 11-7 on Sunday.
Venable connected in the third inning off reliever Neftali Feliz. Quentin hit a two-run shot off Joe Saunders in a four-run second.
Headley's doubles were his first extra-base hits this spring. The third baseman was playing in his third game after being sidelined with a strained right calf.
Non-roster invitee Xavier Nady went 3 for 4 with two doubles and three RBIs for San Diego.
Saunders, signed March 5 to be a rotation candidate for the Rangers, retired only four of his 15 batters. He allowed nine runs and eight hits, including five doubles and a homer.
Michael Choice had three hits and drove in three Texas runs. Leonys Martin was 4 for 4 with two doubles.
