"I've been out of the game almost three months," Gibson said after his outing. "It was nice to be back out there. It was real easy to have that good energy out there. When you can't do things, you realize taking it for granted just doesn't work."

• tigereye: Schmidt hit a HR each day. Seems to be connecting well each time. Hit it just right of the new score board as they were putting up the final portion of the video screen. Garcia I saw had a good day as well getting a hit each time at bat but one. Scheiber hit it hard with a HR as well.
