Adrian Gonzalez had a career-best (and tied a club record) with six hits Tuesday night, while the San Diego Padres cracked out 22 in all, for their best offensive show of the season.
During their 13-6 ass-whooping of the Milwaukee Brewers, Gonzalez managed base hits in the first, fifth, sixth, seventh and ninth innings, and doubled in the third. The team enjoyed at least two hits in every inning aside from the fourth.
His bases-loaded single off lefty reliever Mitch Stetter in the sixth helped bust the game wide open, which is unusual since the left-handed first baseman came into the game batting .190 off left-handed pitching.
Pads Hall of Famer Tony Gywnn went 6-for-7 in an extra-innings game against the San Francisco Giants back in 1993, and even got to witness Gonzelez's feat live from the broadcast booth. Special.
