Notes, Quotes · Roster Report · Little support for right-handers Moseley, Stauffer

The bottom two starting pitchers in the major leagues when it comes to run support are Padres right-handers Dustin Moseley and Tim Stauffer.

The Padres didn't score a run for Moseley over the first 26 2/3 innings and were shut out in each of his first three starts. His official run support number was a miniscule 0.57 runs per game going into Sunday's start at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

The Padres' three-run second represented one more run than the Padres had scored during Moseley's first five starts -- a span covering 31 2/3 innings.

Moseley allowed three hits over seven innings Sunday -- the three runs enough to provide him with his first win of the season.

Moseley's ERA has dropped to 1.63 and his ERA for four road starts is a miniscule 0.68.

Meantime, Stauffer's run support figure is 1.63. He has no decisions over his last three starts despite a 1.87 ERA over the 20 innings. The Padres scored only four runs while he has been in those three games.

On Saturday night, Stauffer equaled his career high of seven strikeouts for the second straight game. Moseley equaled his career high with six strikeouts Sunday.
