Gyorko homered, doubled and singled with four RBI in a Wednesday night rout of St. Louis. He is 6 for 11 since coming back.
"It's more of a fresh shart than anything," Gyorko told the San Diego Union-Tribune. "What happened at the beginning, you can't go back and change it and you can't say it didn't happen either - it's there.
