Maddux first 10-20 pitcher, leads Padres in rout of Phillies wire reports

PHILADELPHIA -- Passing Cy Young didn't faze Greg Maddux. Moving ahead of his older brother was a bit more exciting.

Maddux became the first pitcher to win 10 games in 20 consecutive seasons, tossing seven solid innings in the San Diego Padres' 14-3 rout of the Philadelphia Phillies on Friday night.

Milton Bradley hit a pair of three-run homers and Adrian Gonzalez also connected twice for the Padres, who moved three games ahead of the Phillies in the NL wild-card race. Josh Bard had five of the Padres' season-high 22 hits.

San Diego entered three games behind Arizona in the West, while Philadelphia fell six behind the New York Mets in the East.

Maddux (10-9) allowed three runs and seven hits, outpitching Jamie Moyer in a matchup of 40-something hurlers with a combined 570 wins.

Cy Young had 19 straight seasons with double-digit wins from 1891-1909. Maddux is tied with Nolan Ryan for second behind Don Sutton for most seasons with 10 wins. Sutton had 21.

"I didn't know that. That's cool," Maddux said, shrugging off his latest accomplishment.

How about surpassing Mike Maddux on San Diego's all-time list for wins? Mike had nine wins for the Padres in 1991-92.

"That's big," Greg said with a smile.

Benches emptied in the fourth inning when Carlos Ruiz slid hard into Padres second baseman Marcus Giles trying to break up a double play on a grounder by Abraham Nunez. Giles got up after his late relay throw to first base and immediately got in Ruiz's face, but no punches were thrown.

Ruiz's late slide into Giles' knees cost the Phillies a run. Umpires ruled interference so Nunez was out at first and Shane Victorino returned to third base, even though he scored easily on the play.

"That was a .... slide. There's playing hard and playing dirty," Maddux said.

After seeing the replay, Ruiz said he understood why Giles was angry.

"It was a little high," Ruiz said. "I was just thinking about breaking up the double play. I was just playing hard."

Giles led off the next inning and Ruiz glared in his direction, but home plate umpire Wally Bell stepped between the players to ensure nothing happened. Giles singled and left the game later in the inning with a right hip pointer.

With two outs, Bradley broke his bat and still homered to left to give the Padres a 5-3 lead. Gonzalez followed with a drive to straightaway center for his third homer in four at-bats and 23rd this season. Gonzalez hit a solo shot in the 10th inning to give San Diego a 9-8 win over the New York Mets on Thursday night.

A fielding error on third baseman Nunez kept the inning going and Bard added a two-run double to make it 8-3.

Moyer (11-10) gave up eight runs -- six earned -- and 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings. The 44-year-old left-hander has allowed 13 earned runs in his last two starts, raising his ERA from 4.68 to 5.16.

The injury-depleted Phillies have lost three of four to start an important 10-game homestand.

"It was a good game for four innings and then it got ugly," Phillies manager Charlie Manuel said.

Gonzalez hit a two-run shot in the first to give the Padres a 2-0 lead. Ryan Howard's looping double to left drove in one run and Aaron Rowand followed with an RBI single to tie it at 2 in the bottom of the inning.

Bradley went deep off Jose Mesa in the ninth to make it 13-3.

"In San Diego, all they talk about is how bad an offensive team we are," Bradley said. "Now it's time for the offense to step it up."

Maddux, a four-time NL Cy Young award winner, has allowed three earned runs or less in 20 of his 27 starts this season, including the last eight. He hasn't walked a batter in his last five starts, spanning 31 innings.

"He's a tremendous pitcher," manager Bud Black said. "He keeps on rolling. I'm just amazed the intelligence and preparation he has going into every start. He's a great athlete and a great competitor."

Kevin Kouzmanoff and Gonzalez had four hits each for San Diego.


  • All-Star 2B Chase Utley and RHP Adam Eaton had rehab appearances for the Phillies at Double-A Reading. Utley, who had hand surgery on July 27, was 1-for-6 in a doubleheader. He could return to the lineup Sunday or Monday. Eaton, out with shoulder inflammation, gave up two runs in two innings in Game 1. He could start against the Mets on Tuesday.
  • Both Maddux and Moyer were drafted by the Chicago Cubs in 1984.
  • Moyer has faced a pitcher over 40 seven times this season.
  • Bard is 8-for-10 with five RBI in his last two games.
