News: Padres second baseman Jedd Gyorko has five RBI in his last two games since returning from the disabled list. That equals the total he compiled in 21 games before he landed on the DL.

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. It's not something I like to think about a whole lot, but it's something you can learn from. Obviously, things weren't right, but I think I've gotten to the point where I'm pretty comfortable now."

Gyorko made a splash in 2013 with 23 home runs. He has a long way to go to make his 2014 numbers respectable - he is still saddled with a stat line of .171/.224/.276.
