Latos activated from DL, handed loss in season debut · Roster Report · Notes, Quotes

--RHP Mat Latos allowed three runs on four hits over six innings Monday night in his injury-delayed season debut. Latos was activated from the 15-day disabled earlier in the day after being out with bursitis in his shoulder. His velocity peaked at 97 mph Monday with his fastball usually in the 94-96 range. All three runs came on homers hit by Cincinnati's Jonny Gomes and Chris Heisey (two-run game winner in the top of the fifth).

--LHP Wade LeBlanc was returned to Class AAA Tucson on Monday morning, less than 24 hours after he had been recalled to address a shortage in the Padres bullpen following the 11-inning, rain-suspended game Friday/Saturday. RHP Mat Latos took LeBlanc's spot on the roster.

--RF Will Venable went 2-for-3 Monday night after entering the game with a .120 average. He is hitting .400 (14-for-35) lifetime against the Reds.

--C Nick Hundley went 0-for-3 Monday to see his seven-game hitting streak snapped. The seven-game streak was the second longest of Hundley's career behind a pair of nine-game streaks.

--After the Dodgers stole 10 bases in the three-game weekend series, C Nick Hundley and backup C Rob Johnson were out early Monday afternoon working with former catcher Brad Ausmus on throws to second. Hundley threw out one of the two Reds who ran Monday night.

2.79 -- Padres' staff ERA over the first nine games of the season.

"I made two mistakes the whole ballgame. Everything felt fine. My arm felt fine. I was a little bit nervous before the game. I was excited to get out there and compete in front of the fans." -- Padres RHP Mat Latos, who gave up two homers to the Reds Monday night and suffered the loss in his injury-delayed 2011 debut.
