Austin Hedges went ballistic on Wednesday, homering twice and plating four runs in the Padres’ Cactus League tie with the White Sox.
Hedges had been homerless in 39 Cactus League at-bats prior to Wednesday. His first round-tripper was a solo blast off Anthony Swarzak with the second coming off Dan Jennings with two men on in the fourth inning. Wednesday’s outburst brought Hedges’ Cactus League average up from .256 to .310. The 24-year-old only logged 24 at-bats in the big leagues last year but is penciled in as the Padres’ Opening Day catcher. Mar 29 - 7:14 PM
