Wil Myers once, Melvin Upton, Jr. once and, as we noted in this morning’s recaps, rookie Travis Jankowski twice. That gives the Padres four steals of home this season. That’s not the sort of thing that’s going to change a team’s prospects too terribly much over the course of a long season, but it’s definitely fun.

As for Jankowski, he’s having himself a nice season. He’s hitting .266/.378/.348 with 25 stolen bases in 87 games. He’s 15-for-30 in the month of August. That’ll play as a major league leadoff man.
