Padres bomb Cardinals in west coast debut

SAN DIEGO--The St. Louis Cardinals were shell-shocked in a San Diego Padres fifth inning as the home team put five runs on the scoreboard on their way to a 9-3 shellacking of the visiting Cards.

San Diego hit three two-run home runs as they took down the N.L. Central leading Cardinals.

The game is the first of a three-game series in San Diego on a nine-game road trip.
