• It was a smooth Padres debut for new reliever Joaquin Benoit, who worked a scoreless inning Friday, allowing one hit with one strikeout. Benoit, who signed a two-year deal worth $15.5 million before the season, threw 18 pitches, 13 for strikes.
Benoit was clocked as high as 96 mph and showcased his plus-changeup at 86 mph, providing a nice differential in speed from the fastball.
