Light-hitting Padres spread out home runs

Light-hitting Padres spread out home runs

DENVER -- By no means are the Padres known at all for their home run prowess. In fact, they went into their game Wednesday at Coors Field against the Rockies with the second-fewest home runs (61) in the National League.

Maybe it's not how many you hit, but who hits them that matters the most?

When Jake Goebbert connected for his first Major League home run in the fourth inning, he became the 18th member of the Padres to go deep this season. No other team in the Major Leagues has as many players with home runs.

That's right, 63 home runs this season by 18 different players.

Seth Smith, who also had a homer Wednesday, leads the team with 10.

The other Padres who have hit home runs include Yasmani Grandal, Chase Headley, Rene Rivera, Yonder Alonso, Jedd Gyorko, Tommy Medica, Carlos Quentin, Everth Cabrera, Xavier Nady, Alexi Amarista, Will Venable, Brooks Conrad, Chris Denorfia, Nick Hundley, Ian Kennedy and Cameron Maybin.
