Carlos Quentin is clearly the Padres biggest threat.

Quentin's two-run homer in Oakland Saturday afternoon gave him six in 48 at-bats as a Padre. He also has 13 RBI and 11 extra-base hits in 14 starts.

Since joining the Padres in Chicago on May 28, Quentin has hit .417 with a .541 on-base percentage and a .896 slugging percentage.

But are pitchers beginning to exact revenge on Quentin. Saturday also marked the fifth time as a Padre – the fifth time over his last 10 starts to be exact – that Quentin has been hit by a pitch.

Is Quentin concerned with the trend? Does he think he has become targeted?

"Not yet," he said after the Padres 6-4 loss in Oakland. "I haven't seen that yet this season. I've been hit with a lot of inside breaking pitches so far."
