Padres' Forsythe hits 2 triples in third inning
SAN DIEGO 11, CLEVELAND 8

GOODYEAR, Ariz. (AP) -- Logan Forsythe offers the San Diego
Padres many options. Yet, he's trying to leave them with only
one choice.



He wants to start.



Forsythe gave the Padres two more reasons to make him a regular:
he hit two triples in the same inning of an 11-8 victory over
the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.



"He's ready to play every day," Black said. "He wants to play
every day."



Forsythe led off third with a triple to right field off Ubaldo
Jimenez and his three-base with two outs off Edward Parades
drove in two runs. The Padres scored seven runs in the inning.



Jimenez gave up seven hits and five runs in two-plus innings.



San Diego manager Bud Black sees Forsythe as a starter.



But where?



He's been working at second base, third base, shortstop and left
field this spring. He was at shortstop Saturday. Forsythe
expects to be in the infield with occasional duty in left. But
there's a competition at every position.



Chase Headley is the third baseman. Everth Cabrera is Forsythe's
chief competition at short. Jedd Gyorko has excelled at second
this spring. And it looks as if Carlos Quentin will be San
Diego's everyday left fielder.



But with a couple of swings of the bat Saturday, Forsythe
reminded Black just how valuable he can be.



At Petco Park in San Diego, he was especially effective. His
.313 batting average at home was the highest ever by a hitter
with 150 or more at-bats in the ballpark that opened in 2004. He
had eight doubles, five homers and a .493 slugging p percentage.
Oh yeah, he had two triples, too.



Forsythe led San Diego's 18-hit attack against the Indians, who
took a 6-0 lead in the opening inning, roughing up Edinson
Volquez, who gave up six runs on six hits in two innings.



It was Volquez's second appearance in spring. He struck out four
in two innings on Feb. 25 against Milwaukee.



"He had to work awful hard in a strong inning," Black said. "His
velocity was there. I think he's good. It's a good start."



One of the six hits allowed by Volquez was a three-run homer by
Ryan Raburn, who signed a minor league contract with the Indians
on Jan. 19 after a tough year in Detroit.



"I don't have the luxury of a guaranteed spot," said Raburn, who
has four homers this spring and is trying to make the
Cleveland's opening-day roster as a utility player. "I'm trying
to force them to make a decision.



"I've got something to prove," Rayburn said.



NOTES: Indians manager Terry Francona said right-hander Frank
Herrmann saw Los Angeles Angels team physician Dr. Lewis Yocum
for a second opinion on his sprained right elbow. The Indians
announced Friday that he was out indefinitely. It's believed
Herrmann was injured Monday when he allowed four runs on five
hits in a 14-10 victory over the Oakland A's at Phoenix
Municipal Stadium. Herrmann has been competing for a spot in the
Cleveland bullpen. . Indians reliever Joe Smith threw batting
practice Saturday morning. Smith has been sidelined by strain to
a left abdominal muscle. . The Indians play the Dodgers Sunday
at Camelback Ranch in Glendale. Right-hander Corey Kluber is
Cleveland's scheduled start. The Dodgers plan to start
right-hander Josh Beckett. . The Padres are at home at the
Peoria Sports Complex against the White Sox. Left-hander Clayton
Richard is San Diego's scheduled starter. The White Sox plan to
go with right-hander Jake Peavy.
