--LHP Joe Thatcher is going to see an orthopedic surgeon Wednesday about the possibility of having shoulder surgery after a bullpen session was shut down early Tuesday. Thatcher has been on the disabled list since the start of the season with a shoulder strain and three cortisone injections has not resolved the issue.

--RHP Evan Scribner made his major league debut Tuesday night, allowing two singles and a walk in two scoreless innings. He was promoted from Triple-A Tucson Monday.

--RHP Mat Latos, 23, seeks to end a personal eight-start losing streak dating back to the end of last season in Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Braves.

--LF Ryan Ludwick is 11-for-34 (.324) over his last eight games with four doubles and three homers.

--RHP Ernesto Frieri has worked a perfect inning in each of the Padres' last three games, striking out five of the nine hitters he faced. Frieri has a 1.26 ERA on the season with 18 strikeouts in 14 1/3 innings.

8 -- Runs allowed by the Padres Tuesday night, equaling the most they have allowed in a game this season.

"He hit my mistakes in a situation where he flourishes. He can hit pitches up in the zone better than anything. On the first homer, he got a fastball up on a 2-and-0 count when I've got to come in with a strike and the pitch was elevated. The last at-bat was a high change-up." -- RHP Aaron Harang, on the two homers hit off him Tuesday night by former Cincinnati battery-mate David Ross.
