VENERABLE DEBUT

San Diego's Will Venable, making his major league debut, tripled to right-center field in his first at-bat in the Padres' 9-4 loss to the Rockies. He scored a few pitches later on Aaron Cook's wild pitch for a 1-0 lead in the second. Venable is the son of former major leaguer Max Venable, who was his son's hitting coach at Triple-A Portland.
