Stephen Drew stole the spotlight from Jake Peavy, connecting on a two-run walk-off homer off Trevor Hoffman in the ninth inning as the Diamondbacks upended the Padres 3-2. The rookie’s blast off of the future Hall of Famer overshadowed a historic effort from Peavy, who tied a career high in fanning 16 D-Backs.
The Alabama native's seven shutout innings inlcuded nine Ks in a row, one shy of the Major League record. But in the end, it was Drew who got the last laugh. His first homer of the year made a winner of Tony Pena, who relieved reigning N.L. Cy Young winner Brandon Webb after eight strong innings.
