Diaz opened Monday's game by tossing three innings and allowing one hit and two walks with three strikeouts in a 2-0 win over Pittsburgh.

Diaz was the first of six Padres pitchers in an extremely successful bullpen game that limited the Pirates to only four hits. Aside from one blowup outing in Colorado, Diaz has not allowed a run in the other 8.2 innings he's pitched.
