Maddux goes five in Minors game

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Greg Maddux skipped the Tucson road trip Tuesday and pitched in a Minor League game facing the Mariners Triple-A squad in Peoria, Ariz.

Maddux threw five innings and allowed one run on four hits and a walk while striking out five. He threw a total of 71 pitches, 47 for strikes.

Three other players from the Padres Major League roster appeared in the game. Adrian Gonzalez and Kevin Kouzmanoff played in the game to get back on the field after returning from China, and Josh Bard stayed behind to catch Maddux.

Bard was 2-for-6 with a double and a run scored, Kouzmanoff was 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored and Gonzalez went 0-for-3.

Several more players from the China trip are slated to play in a Minor League game in Peoria on Wednesday while the rest of the club enjoys an off-day. Gonzalez, Scott Hairston, Brian Myrow, Craig Stansberry, Oscar Robles and Luis Rodriguez will all work out Wednesday and play in a Minor League game alongside pitcher Randy Wolf, according to manager Bud Black.
