San Diego Padres - PlayerWatch

RHP Tyson Ross didn't get the win after pitching six effective innings in the season-ending 7-6 loss to the Giants. It was a fitting ending to the right-hander's season. Ross struck out seven and left with a three-run lead, which looked like it would be good enough to earn him his fourth win of the year. But for the sixth time during his season-ending, nine-game winless streak, he couldn't catch a break late and was denied what he deserved. Ross finished the season with a fine 3.17 ERA, certainly not a mark that befits a 3-8 record.

INF Ehire Adrianza made his third start of the season at shortstop in Tuesday's series opener against the Dodgers. The rookie got the nod in large part because SS Brandon Crawford doesn't hit left-handers well, and chief backup INF Joaquin Arias was not with the team because of personal matters. That said, the start was a nice reward for Adrianza, who homered off LHP Andy Pettitte in the Giants' 2-1 win over the Yankees on Sunday. Adrianza struck out twice in three hitless at-bats Tuesday against Dodgers LHP Hyun-Jim Ryu.

Padres 4, Giants 1

Padres 4, Giants 1: Nick Hundley homered and Ian Kennedy struck out seven over six innings as San Diego defeated visiting San Francisco in the opener of the three-game series. Kennedy (6-9) yielded one run on five hits and two relievers pitched scoreless inning before Huston Street worked a perfect ninth for his 26th save to extend his scoreless inning streak to 19 1/3. San Diego snapped its three-game losing skid despite being held to four hits.

LHP Jeremy Affeldt (left groin strain) threw his second bullpen session Monday at the Giants facility in Scottsdale, Ariz. Manager Bruce Bochy said Affeldt, who last pitched for the Giants on July 20, would throw a simulated game next Monday at San Diego before the Giants open a three-game series with the Padres and be activated if that goes well.

C Hector Sanchez caught the final two innings of Wednesday's 12-1 loss to the Boston Red Sox after an x-ray on his left forearm was negative. Sanchez was hit by a LHP Franklin Morales fastball in the ninth inning of Tuesday's 3-2 win and was in serious pain in the home plate area for several minutes before strolling to first base. Twelve hours later, the backup catcher was bruised but ready for pinch-hitting or late-game defensive duties.

RHP Sandy Rosario had a scary moment during the seventh inning of Thursday's game when a line drive from Washington's Adam LaRoche drilled him in the chest. Rosario recovered enough to throw the batter out, but then crumpled by the mound and was removed from the game after being examined by trainers. "He's fine. He has a bruised sternum," manager Bruce Bochy said. "It's one of the hardest hits I've seen a pitcher take. It's a scary moment. He's going to be sore for a couple of days."
