Oswaldo Arcia, Alexi Amarista, Yangervis Solarte, Luis Sardinas and Hector Sanchez were the record-setters on a night in which they helped the Padres blank the Giants 4-0. “It's like playing at home,” said Solarte after being notified of the fact. “Having everyone out there, I'm proud of it, and I'm proud for everyone to be a part of that.” It speaks volumes about Venezuela's growth as a talent pipeline that it's also the second time in
