QUOTE TO NOTE
"This is why you will never hear me complain about playing at Petco Park. You might get robbed of a home run every once in a while, deal with it. Last night was bad, today was ridiculous." -- Padres C Nick Hundley, after Tuesday's game in Chicago was postponed into a Wednesday doubleheader because of projected heavy rains and a wind-chill factor that was dropping into the 20s.
